These are easy and very, very yummy! I used this recipe as a base for the cupcake and filled the cases to about half way with the mix, and placed a teaspoon sized blob of cookie dough on top - I used this ‘Betty Crocker’ cookie mix.
I frosted them with a vanilla butter cream and added a couple of tablespoons of the left over cookie dough to the mix (you can add to taste).
*NOTE: If I was doing this again I would remove choc drops or use a mix that has choc chips opposed to drops, as it was quite hard to pipe with such large bits blocking the nozzle.
3-4 cups sifted icing sugar (depends on the consistency you are after)
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
2 tablespoons milk
Beat the butter until it is light and fluffy.
Add your first two cups of icing sugar, vanilla and 1 tablespoon of milk and beat.
Continue to add icing sugar and milk until you get the right consistency.
While I was putting this together I was thinking about ‘Cookie Monster’ – I mean who loves cookies more than him! So I used the same cupcake and made these…
To decorate the cookie monsters I topped them with vanilla buttercream, dipped them in blue sugar crystals, rolled fondant to shape the eyes and dotted them with a chocolate fudge pen. I used a chocolate chip cookie for the mouth. Not too bad for a first attempt and a very cute idea for kids.
