What in life is better than a really good chocolate chip cookie? a really good chocolate chip cookie on top of a CUPCAKE. Yum. And who better to personify that than the Cookie Monster.
FYI - surprisingly difficult to get the right shade of blue in buttercream icing. Thanks to the lovely Trina for her magical stirring skills, or I'm not sure we ever would have made it.
Cookie Time's cookie bites are the perfect size for these - but beware, they're very moreish and once the bag is open.... it's hard to stop :) (Luckily I only made 12 cupcakes! Or some of them may have been cookie-less, and that's just wrong)
My family got to these ones pretty quick, but I think Elmo may be next - and he is ALL mine!!
