Cookie Monster Cupcakes

Updated: May 12


Ingredients

Cupcakes:

  • 2 eggs OR two 1/4 cups of vanilla yogurt

  • 1/2 cup butter, room temperature

  • 1 cup of cane sugar

  • ½ cup milk, of your choosing - we used almond milk

  • 2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 tablespoon oil (recommend sunflower or olive)

  • 1 package of chocolate chips, 2 chips per cupcake

  • 1 package of your favorite chocolate chip cookies, or homemade chocolate chip cookies

Frosting

OR

  • 1 1/2 cup heavy cream

  • 1/2 cup and 2 tablespoons powdered sugar

PLUS

  • Blue food coloring (for natural food coloring, add 1/2 cup of frozen blueberries to a food processor and strain the liquid into a cup or bowl; add the blue liquid to the frosting mixture and whip until combined)


Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 12-cupcake pan with cupcake papers. Get blue liners for an extra bonus!

  2. In a medium-sized bowl or stand mixer, lightly beat the eggs, butter, and sugar, until light and fluffy.

  3. Add milk, flour, vanilla, baking soda, and oil. Combine until light and creamy, about 2 minutes.

  4. Divide the mixture evenly between the cake papers. Bake for 18-20 minutes, until risen and firm to touch.

  5. Allow cooling for a few minutes and then transferring to a wire rack. Then, let the cupcakes cool fully before decorating!

Decorating

  1. Follow the frosting recipe as normal: if using the recipe above, just add all ingredients into a stand mixer or bowl, and whip until light and fluffy.

  2. In a small bowl, add un-dyed vanilla frosting for eyes and set aside.

  3. Dye the remaining frosting blue.

  4. Place the frosting into a 16oz frosting bag, or your favorite frosting tool, fixed with a Wilton 2D decorating tip. Pipe frosting evenly over cupcakes.

  5. To make the eyes, in a clean bag or frosting tool, fixed with a Wilton Round #1A decorating tip fill with the un-dyed vanilla frosting. Add two separate dollops at the top of the cupcake and place a chocolate chip in the center of the whites; I place the chocolate chips upside down so that the flat bottom is facing upwards.

  6. For the mouth, press a cookie into the front of the frosting. If the cookies are too big, cut in half.
