Cookie monster cupcakes have been on my mind ever since we began the cupcake challenge. I absolutely love cupcakes, but this time, I wanted to focus more on the decor than taste. If you've got a delicious cupcake recipe, feel free to use it here. I paid homage to Sandra Lee's Semi-Homemade cooking empire and made these from a box.

Whether you go for gourmet or box cupcake, these are really really simple to decorate.

Step 1: Cookie monster cupcake ingredients

Here's what you'll need to make your cookie monster cupcakes fabulous:

One dozen cupcakes that have been baked and cooled. 
One container vanilla frosting (mine was store bought, you could make this easily. I love this recipe for cream cheese frosting.
Blue food dye
One bag of shredded coconut
Chocolate chips
Chocolate chip cookies
  • Start off by putting most of your vanilla frosting in a bowl. You'll want to reserve 1/4 of the frosting to make the whites of the eyes of your little monsters.
  • Add several drops of blue food dye until your frosting becomes a nice consistent blue. This took me about 20 drops.
  • Frost your cupcakes and get ready for the next step -- we're going to make them furry!

<p>This is absolutely gorgeous! No Sesame street fan can resist! :)))</p>
Aww their so cute!!!
I made some of these a little while back. I found that using white chocolate buttons as eyes and blue coloured sieved sugar worked a little bit easier then coconut or piping it on (although, I admit I'm next to useless with a piping bag lol).<br><br>Although, as you may have found, they are difficult little so and so's to eat whatever method you use XD
These are just too cute. I am going to have to make these as soon as I can find an excuse to make more baked goodies. &lt;3
They look delicious. For serious, you need to start selling them!<br><br>In fact, I'm demanding you start selling them. And I suggested it, so I get 50 free. <br><br>Per day.<br><br>
were you the one who posted this here http://mochacafe.info/post/5444610700 or did you just steal it?
Are you accusing her of being a psychic muppet baker spy? I ask this not to ruffle any blue fur, but because that would be an awesome screenplay and if it's okay by you, I'm going to steal that idea and such. <br><br>And a nomnomnomnom to you sir.
Oh those are really cute too! <br /><br />As you're no doubt aware, the internet is a place of creativity and the evolution of ideas. I am not the first person to make these (no will I be the last). We can all share ideas and be inspired to build upon them-- that is community building in it's purest form :)
