Super Easy Minion Cupcakes from Despicable Me that the kids can create all by themselves!

Minion Candy Cupcakes


  • Cupcakes of your choice
  • White Frosting
  • Blue and Yellow Candy Pearls
  • Chocolate Cookie Icing (Betty Crocker)
  • Chocolate Jimmies
  • Mini Marshmallows
  • Mini Chocolate Chips

Pearl Candy

  1. Start out by frosting the cupcakes using your white frosting.
  2. Poor your candy pearls in a bowl to make it easy for the kids to decorate. My 4 year old had so much fun counting and sorting his candies…Pearl Candy
  3. Line up 3 rows of 6 blue candies starting at the bottom of the cupcake.
  4. Add 2 more blue candies on the tops of the end rows of the blue.
  5. Line up the yellow from one end to the other in that same row.
  6. Line up 3 more rows of 5 with the yellow and the top row using 4.
  7. Add 3 chocolate jimmies on top for the hair.
  8. Cut the tips off of mini marshmallows using kitchen scissors and place them on top for the eyes.
  9. Squeeze on your chocolate icing on the sides and around the marshmallows to look like glasses.
  10. Attach on the mini chocolate chips for pupils and add a mouth using the icing.

That’s it…how easy is that?!
