You can try this:

Dim currentTime As DateTime = DateTime.Now 
currentTime.AddMinutes(10) 
Dim printDate As String = currentTime.ToString("yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm") 

Open in new window

You can use the AddMinutes method of DateTime object and then use ToString with format you want.
Dim now As DateTime = DateTime.Now
        MsgBox(now.AddMinutes(10).ToString("yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm"))

Open in new window

Agreed!
"yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm" == 24 hour clock w/ leading zero (single H removes leading zero)
"yyyy-MM-dd hh:mm" == 12 hour clock w/ leading zero

*In Dhaest's example, you need to change:

    currentTime.AddMinutes(10)

To:

    currentTime = currentTime.AddMinutes(10)
