A monkey on a cupcake

These amazing and adorable cookie monster cupcakes always make for great treats for any event you have planned no matter the age group. They are pretty easy to make and will have everyone wanting to get involved.

– Box Cake Mix (your choice)  – White Candy Melts (for the eyes) – Ziploc Bag  – Chocolate Chips (for the eyes) – Can of whipped white frosting  – Blue food paste – Powdered Sugar  – Almond Extract  – Cookie (your choice)


Make the eyes from scratch… using white candy melts (melted in a zippy bag – snipping a corner to control how I put it onto the Silicone Baking Mat)….and chocolate chips for the center of the eyes

Bake cupcakes… and let them cool. Cut a “slit” into the cupcakes — this will be his mouth and hold the cookie.

Take a can of whipped white frosting — Add a little almond extract, 1/2 cup of powdered sugar, and some Wilton blue food paste coloring.

Add the whip to a pastry bag, with a star tip and then frost the cupcakes…  Then add a pair of eyes…

To complete the look... add a cookie to its mouth...using that slit
