Everyone is going crazy for the new Summer Blockbuster Minions Movie so these Easy Minion Pretzels are a must at your next Minion birthday day party (you know you’re going to have one). These Easy Minion Pretzels start with Wilton Icing Decorations. I love that I don’t have to try to draw on the Minion’s funny faces. Wilton has done all the hard work for me. I found my decorations at Michael’s.
If you are more of a visual person I have a video HOW TO DECORATE PRETZELS.
Wilton Icing Decorations.
Lay out the decorations where you would like them to go on the pretzels rods.
Take a piece of foil and wrap it around the area that will be yellow.
Melt the blue candy melts, spoon blue over the bottom portion of the pretzel. TIP: Make sure to leave enough room for your guests to handle the pretzel without having to touch the melted candy. Tap any excess off and place on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Place in the refrigerator to harden.
Melt the yellow candy. I used a jar so I could dip them into the candy.
Use a bowl to tap off any excess candy.
Place on the cookie sheet again and in the refrigerator to harden.
OPTIONAL: Pour the remaining blue candy into a squeeze bottle and make straps. Also, melt dark chocolate and place a dot on the pants to look like buttons. These steps are optional but would be fine left without.
Dip decorations in melted yellow candy and place on pretzels. ENJOY!

For an easy and inexpensive banner idea use paper plates, punch a hole in each corner, use crepe paper, ribbon or string and thread the plates together!
