I went on a big cleaning spree today, so I made some little minions to help me out. Unfortunately they just sat there staring at me with their big eyes and goofy smiles.
To make these I took left over chocolate pound cake, mixed it with some icing. Just enough to make it all stick. Roll it into balls and put in the fridge for a few hours until they firm up. When you are ready you can dip them in melted chocolate, or as I did ganache. To decorate I used chocolate jimmies for hair, mini marshmallows cut in half for eyes, and I cut strips of fruit by the foot for the mouth.
To be honest this was a bit of a death by chocolate taste, so perhaps next time I would make them with a white cake next time.
