i've always bought the boy's valentines for their classes, but we wanted to do something special this year. these minion cookies look hard to make, but they're not! i made 50 in under an hour, and when they were dry we just put them in little self-sealing plastic envelopes (from walmart) and stapled a yellow card to each one with cute messages like "you're one in a minion" and "be my despicable me". (the boys came up with that one.)
pepperidge farm milano cookies
store bought blue and black cookie icing (in the tubes)
candy eyes (on baking aisle)
they were fun to make, and a big hit!
