Gramma in a Box “Emoji and Minion Treats” June 2020 Review
Each month we receive a card that highlights the theme and lists the contents of our box which includes two sheets of wax paper that serve as placemats to make for easy cleanup. The three projects all come on individual recipe cards that list the ingredients on the back. The directions are easy to follow and any important information is highlighted in red which is always helpful. This month our theme is “Emoji and Minion Treats,” which is perfect for my Minion-loving kiddos!
Project #1: Emoji Pops
Our first project was to make emoji pops using big marshmallows, yellow melting chocolate, lollipop sticks, and some fun sprinkles!
The first step is always to melt the chocolate in the microwave for a minute and stir it up. We’ve recently gotten rid of our microwave (thanks to a 2-year-old who likes to put things inside and turn it on!) so I simply put a glass bowl over a pan of water and that worked just as efficiently. While I melted the chocolate, the kids began putting their marshmallows on the end of their lollipop sticks.
I rolled the marshmallows in chocolate for them and then handed the pops to them to dip into the brown sprinkles and add some fun emoji sprinkles to. I found that pouring them onto a plate made things a little bit easier.
Here are our cute emoji pops! The kids had a lot of fun with this thanks to the silly sprinkles.
Project #2: Crispy Minion Bites
Our next project was to make crispy Minion bites using the leftover melting chocolate, blue sprinkles, Kix cereal, and some little candy cups to put them in.
I poured the Kix into our leftover melted chocolate and stirred them up. Then I distributed them into the little candy cups and the kids topped them with sprinkles.
I may have distributed these a bit unevenly in the cups. Our cup of Kix had come open during its journey to our home so they were a bit stale, but the chocolate masked it pretty well. I did reach out to “Gramma” and she says that if something like this were to happen to a subscriber they can contact her directly through her website and she’ll be able to help! Although, I think that with a box like this, it’s just something that is bound to happen occasionally, and it’s never deterred my kiddos from enjoying the treats!
Project #3: Emoji and Minion Cookie Decorating
Our last project was to decorate our cookies. We received some white, blue, and yellow icing along with some yellow and blue sprinkles. We also used the leftover emoji sprinkles from our first project.
There were 8 cookies; 2 large Minions, 2 small Minions, 2 small circles, and 2 large circles.
The kiddos were concentrating hard this month!
Here are our finished cookies. They turned out pretty cute, although we did run out of the fun sprinkles because they happened to be snacking on them the entire time and I didn’t realize it!
Here is our finished plate of treats. We had 6 emoji pops, 6 Minion bites, and 8 cookies! I think the cookies are great the next day when the icing has set! They are not super sweet and always have a good texture!
I love how easy it is to clean up when we finish. I can recycle the plastic inside the box it all arrived in and then after a quick wipe of the table and kids we can move on to enjoying the treats!
Verdict: This month’s Gramma in a Box theme was a cute one that my kids were excited about! The emoji pops were a hit because they love marshmallows and the Minion bites were a new one with the Kix cereal. As usual, the cookies were fun to decorate and yummy to eat! This box is a great way to spend some time with your family without having to do any planning or shopping and it makes just enough treats for our family to enjoy together!
