Cookie Monster Cupcakes

Pin It I went to a baby shower on Saturday for a couple of my friends.  They are both having boys - how fun!  I was in charge of the cupcakes for the shower and was trying to come up with a fun idea.  I saw some cupcakes that people had made that looked like cookie monster so I went with that.  Most of the cookie monster cupcakes I saw used colored coconut to look like the fur/hair, but I wasn't sure how many people actually like coconut, so I decided to use frosting with a tip that looked like this:

 I used a canned frosting because I wasn't going to have the time to make my own.  I think if I had made a frosting though, it would have been a bit more stiff and probably would have worked better.  I might have to try it again sometime.  The rest of the cookie monster was really easy.  I got some white chocolate melting chocolate circles.  I then melted a little bit of chocolate and used it to "glue" some chocolate chips onto the white chocolate.  Then I simply placed the eyes on the frosted cupcake in crazy directions and then put half of a chips ahoy cookie where the mouth would be.  And they were done!
