My niece was eating a new sugar cookie we were working on and I asked for a review.  “Great,” she replied.  “But not as good as the Minions Cookies. Those are the best cookies Two Sisters Crafting ever made.”  So there you have it … straight from the mouth of a seven year old. I could add that these Minions M&M Cookies are adorable and fun and perfect for a Minion Birthday Party or a Despicable Me Family Movie Night.  I could also add that the blue and yellow M&M Mini’s add a chocolatey crunch to these easy to make cookies that is super yummy.  But I think I will just leave it as “best cookies” ever made!

How to make Minions M&M Cookies

You will need:

Cookie Dough for Minions M&M Cookies

To make the dough for the Minions M&M Cookies – cream the butter and sugar in a mixer.  Add 2 large eggs and the vanilla and mix until light and fluffy.  Mix in baking soda and salt.  Finally mix in the flour one cup at a time.

Use a food scale to split the dough in two equal portions

I used a food scale to weigh the cookie dough and split it into two equal portions.

Color half of the cookie dough blue

I colored 1/2 the dough with 5 drops of Blue Wilton Color Right food coloring.

Color the other half of the cookie dough yellow

Then I colored the remaining half of the cookie dough with 5 drops of Yellow Wilton Color Right food coloring.

Add M&M Minis to the Cookie dough

I separated the yellow and the blue mini M&M’s from two bags of M&M Minis.  I mixed the yellow M&M Minis into the yellow cookie dough and the blue mini M&M’s into the blue cookie dough.

Use Food Scale to measure cookie dough

Using my food scale again, I measured out 2 ounces of cookie dough – 1 oz of blue dough and 1 oz. of yellow dough. I rolled those

I rolled the yellow and the blue dough into balls and then pressed them together.

Cookie Dough ready to bake

Once on the cookie sheet, I flattened the cookie dough dough and shaped it into an oval Minion shape.  Bake the Minion M&M Cookies 9-10 minutes in a oven that has been preheated to 350 degrees.

Ready to decorate the Minions M&M Cookies

Once the cookies have cooled, grab your Wilton Candy Eyes and some black icing.  We used store bought black icing but you could also make up a small batch of Royal Icing.

Some Minions have one big eye and some have two eyes. They all wear goggles.  Use the black icing to make the goggles and the minion’s mouth.  Press the Wilton Candy eyes into the black icing. Easy Peasy!
