cookie monster cupcakes

*I take no credit for these yummy creations. Well, other than photographing & then promptly eating one. My mom is the genius baker extraordinaire who created these treats!

cupcakes - any variety
white or buttercream icing
blue food coloring
granulated sugar or coconut flakes
chocolate morsels
small soft chocolate chip cookies cut in half
small plastic baggy

  1. spoon a few spoonfuls of white icing into the corner of your small plastic baggy
  2. mix blue food coloring into icing & sugar/coconut flakes (in separate bowls!)
  3. spread icing on cupcakes
  4. sprinkle sugar or coconut on top to create "fur"
  5. cut off a small tip off the small plastic baggy & pipe the white eye part onto cupcake
  6. place morsels on top of white piped eyes
  7. dip flat half of cut cookie into leftover blue icing & place as "mouth" (this helps it stick to the sugar/coconut a little better)
  8. sing the "C is for Cookie" song as you serve the cutest cupcakes ever

These are amazing!! Thanks for sharing. I'll definitely be making some . . . (or at least trying to!).

wow, those are adorable! I wish my kids were littler so I'd have an excuse to make them!

lumpsonablog said...

Good luck! They were totally easier than I thought they'd be. The hardest part is not sampling too much as you go! :)

I think we have the same problem...I think I ate three in a matter of an hour. Mmmmm, delicious!

Eh, kids of all ages loved them at our picnic. In fact, I'm pretty sure there was a three way tie for biggest fan of the cookie monster cupcakes: my 2 year old daughter, my 2 year old nephew & my 30 year old brother-in-law!

How cute are those?! My kids would love them (who am I kidding, mommy would probably love them too)!

Thanks! I think I'm going to try to re-create them with another character sooner or later too. I've seen Elmo & Oscar the Grouch done really well before too.

I think this mommy loved them nearly as much as the toddler did. Really though, what's not to like when there is chocolate, gooey goodness!
