Despicable Me 2 and Monsters University Pretzel Snacks!


So I know I know -  I'm totally mixing up the movie characters (not to mention probably really annoying Universal Studios and Disney!).  But both Despicable Me 2 and Monsters University are out (or coming out) and my kiddos loved the first ones so much.  They are seeing Monsters U this weekend so I decided to make them some treats for the movies.  They also happen to love sweet and salty pretzel snacks (at least for now - I tend to overdue it once I find something they like (think cupcakes) and they'll probably be sick of them soon enough).

These came out pretty cute though.  I mean who doesn't love the Minions from Despicable Me?!!


And of course Mike Wazowski too!


And his partner in crime James P. Sullivan aka "Sulley" (he looks a little more blue bull then monster -apparently I can only do so much to make candy melt look like fur!)


All made with square pretzels and candy melt in different colors.  Relatively simple, but melting the candy in zip lock bags and then adding the details does take some time.  These probably took me about 3 hours total (including the time waiting for candy melt to harden).


Totally worth the time spent!


Put 'em all together and you get some Despicable Monsters!  (if that movie comes out I want royalties!)


I am in no way getting compensated by anyone for this post.  All for the love of the movies (and to see the smiles on my kiddo's faces).  Have an awesome weekend!!!
