C is for cookie that's good enough for me.
Does anyone else remember that campaign awhile back where Cookie Monster was going to have to eat only vegetables from now on? I really hope that idea fell by the wayside. I'm all about teaching kids healthy eating habits, but in my opinion teaching that desserts are an off-limits "no-no" at all times just makes everyone want to eat even more of them.
I'm thinking we should teach instead, moderation. Or put our efforts into campaigning against a much creepier mascot, like Ronald McDonald or something.
Someone get on that and I'll be on board immediately.
Anywho, Father's Day is tomorrow! These would be a totally awesome thing to whip up for whoever the special man in your life may be.
They are some of the easiest specialty cupcakes I have done yet, but they still have that wow factor to make them perfect gift material.
For my dad, I'm thinking brunch tomorrow and maybe cookies. It's all up in the air though, I love creating surprises :)
Cookie Monster Cupcakes
12 cupcakes of any flavor baked in paper liners
1 cup (or can) of vanilla icing tinted blue (white some white reserved)
24 white candy melts
24 brown m&ms
12 mini chocolate chip cookies
Bake cupcakes and allow to cool completely. Cut slit in each cupcake and insert 1 mini cookie in each. Using a pastry bag fitted with a large star tip, pipe irregular looking "fur" all over the cupcakes. Place two candy melts on each cupcake for eyes. Dab a tiny bit of white icing on each m&m and place on each candy melt to finish eyes. Serve and enjoy!
