To make these Minion Pretzel Treats you’ll need:

  • 1 bag (1 lb) mini pretzels
  • 1 bag (12 oz) blue candy melts
  • 1 bag (12 oz) yellow candy melts
  • 1 tube (4.25 oz) black decorating icing
  • round white sprinkles and a black candy marker OR small candy eyes
  • wax or parchment paper

Use more or less of each ingredient depending on how many you want to make.


Follow the package instructions to melt the blue candy melts.  Dip half of each pretzel in the blue candy and lay them out on a piece of wax or parchment paper.


Once the blue candy has hardened, melt the yellow candy melts.  Dip the other half in the yellow.  Make sure to dip all the way past the hole on that side of the pretzel so the candy will fill in the space like in the photos.


I used some round white sprinkles to make the eyes.  Just draw some black dots with a candy marker for pupils.  They sell actual candy eyes, but none of the ones I found were small enough for this.


Use a small piping tip to pipe some goggles onto the minion pretzel’s face.  I just bought some pre-made black decorating icing in a tube to make things easier.


Add the eyes before the icing hardens.
