Cookie Monster Cupcakes

It is time to celebrate my favorite furry, blue monster.
November 2nd is Cookie Monster's Birthday!


You may wonder how I came to know this little nugget of information.
I do love to celebrate birthdays, and I am pretty good at remembering dates.
But, Sesame Street characters?
Let me show you something...


My daughter has written the birthdays of ALL the Sesame Street characters on my calendar.
(We now know that my oldest daughter shares her birthday with Ernie.)

This calls for some Cookie Monster Cupcakes!



What you will need to make them:


  • Famous Amos chocolate chip cookies (they are the perfect size!)
  • White Candy Melts
  • Blue buttercream frosting in a piping bag
  • Wilton #233 decorating tip
  • Chocolate chips
  • A batch of your favorite cupcakes


First, cut out a mouth for Cookie Monster.
Eat the cupcake scraps.


Place a cookie in the mouth.
Pipe frosting fur all over the cupcake.


Melt a few candy melts. Put a dab on the back of a chocolate chip, and stick it on the flat side of a candy melt. Put a dollop of frosting on the backs of 2 candy melts, and give Cookie Monster some eyes.


  Om, nom, nom, nom!!

I share my recipes and tutorials at these fun link parties.

  46. My 19 year old daughter asked me to make these for her birthday....thanks so much for posting an easy to understand "how to" on these....I am a non-baker...that is I like baking but don't do it very often so I'm not very good. These cupcakes turned out wonderful! Now I am inspired enough that I am trying the Watermelon Cake this weekend :)
