Who doesn't love the cookie monster? These cupcakes are great for kids' birthday parties and other events. I first made these as a gift for my teachers, and when I started MQ Cupcakes, they were a popular order. Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • To bake:
  • 1 box Duncan Hines cake mix (flavor of your choice)
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 1/4 Cups Water
  • 1/3 Cup Vegetable Oil
  • To decorate:
  • 1 can Duncan Hines frosting
  • 48 white melting chips (for the eyes)
  • 48 large Ghirardelli chocolate chips (for the pupils- Ghirardelli chips are larger and more proportional)
  • 24 Chips Ahoy chocolate chip cookies
  • Wilton Sky Blue food coloring
  • McCormick blue food coloring

Baking Instructions

  1. To Bake:
  2. Bake as directed on the Duncan Hines Box
  3. Allow to cool for an hour to an hour and a half
  4. To Decorate:
  5. Begin with two cupcakes. One will be the traditional base and the "muffin top" of the second will be the cookie monster's head.
  6. Slice the second cupcake in half horizontally. The top half of the cupcake will make the cookie monster's head.
  7. Frost the first cupcake lightly to secure the head.
  8. Make a horizontal slice in the head so that you can stuff the cookie in.
  9. Cut the chocolate chip cookies in half and stuff one in the slice you just made in the cupcake.
  10. Tint the frosting bright blue using the Wilton Sky Blue food coloring. Add McCormick blue food coloring if necessary to get the blue just right.
  11. Cover the entire head with blue frosting, using a decorative tip.
  12. For the eyes, place two white chocolate melting chips on the cookie monster's head.
  13. Place two Ghirardelli chocolate chips on the white melting chips so that the eyes look a bit crazy.
  14. Enjoy! :)

Brownie baking tip

Brownie baking tip

I know they always say for best results always follow the recommended cooking instructions but I always find if I bake my brownies at 325 for 25 min. instead of 350 for 30 min they come out much chewier, moist and fuggy . You always want to take your brownies out of the oven when they are still slightly gooey in the middle because they will continue to cook while cooling in the pan.
