Cookie Monster cupcakes

Cookie Monster Cupcakes will go down a treat at any little kids party and with this technique they will be done quickly without the use of any fancy equipment.

You will need:
Cupcakes (vanilla cake recipe at bottom of princess cake post or chocolate cake recipe)
Blue Buttercream (buttercream recipes can be found here)
White chocolate melts or Candy Melts
Mini m&m’s
mini choc chip cookies (look in the multi pack bags)
ziplock plastic bag

Using a small amount of butter cream ‘glue’ a brown mini m&m onto the white chocolate melt to make the eye.
Fill your ziplock bag with blue butter cream and then around one corner make lots of holes with a skewer. Generously cover you cupcake with blue swirls of buttercream.
Add the eyes, make a line for the mouth using a knife and then add the cookie. DONE!

Watch the video below for a demonstration – keep watching to the end to see my youngest enjoying a cupcake!

  8. Hi, I tried this recipe as it looked really good but it didn’t seem to work for me, every time I tried it the bag kept bursting is there any reason for this?

    • Hi Jade, yes some brands of bags are not good quality and break easily, I have had that happen with one brand before and ended up not using them for icing. Not sure what country you’re in but here in australia glad are nice and strong.

      • Thankyou ill try again with a different brand of bag

  9. Other than cookie monster cupcakes, could you do one that is Elmo? My friend’s birthday is coming up and she loves Elmo. Thank you!

  13. My daughter helped me with making these for the kids at my church tomorrow. It was her first time using a pipping bag. To spend that time with her was a blast. She’s 28 so I use these moments to trick (oh I mean “get”) her to come over and spend time with me LOL!!
    Thank you Ann. **cheryl**

  14. I tried this recipe on Wednesday for some teachers and class mates. They loved them.

    • Hi Maria, thanks for posting a picture they look great 🙂

  15. hi! how do i make the blue buttercream? ive read the recipe on how to make a buttercream but it wasnt written there on how to make a color. thanks! i Love your recipes. i’m trying to make this cookie monster cupcake.

    • Hi eavonne, I used the vanilla buttercream recipe and add blue gel food colouring. If using liquid colour omit the milk until you have added enough colour (about 1/3 of one of the small bottles) to make it cookie monster shade. Then add milk if needed after that.

  16. cant wait to make them. love your little boy

    • have fun hannah
