How to make Cookie Monster Cupcakes with a full tummy of ganache

These past few weeks has seemingly seen Cookie Monster, from Sesame Street, along with his friends Big Bird, Elmo, Bert and Ernie, and Count von Count everywhere.  They've been on tv trailers and even the One Show where Cookie Monster was a little 'upset' having had to wait for his cookie which, when he did get his jaws around it, sent crumbs all over the place!

He's even been in the Only Crumbs Remain kitchen!  OK, perhaps not Cookie Monster himself, leaving crumbs in his wake, but rather in the guise of Cookie Monster Cupcakes!



A fun and easy cupcake perfect for children's parties and other family and charity events.

Just a couple of weeks ago Mr E & I travelled across the Peninne hills to visit his family over the boarder in Lancashire, taking with us a handful (or whatever the collective noun is for a group of Cookie Monster Cupcakes!) of these fun and easy to make cupcakes.  Not only did the faces of our young niece and nephew light up when they saw what we had brought, but the adults chuckled too.  

They were so well received by family that we decided to make some more for a charity bake event at Mr E's office later that week.  They proved to be incredibly popular at the charity bake sale, they were gone in a flash having been bought largely by those with young children.     

Cookie Monster Cupcakes

Cookie Monster Cupcakes are nothing new, infact if you carry out a quick Google search you'll be presented with a host of these amusing blue cupcakes, complete with the goofy eyes and a half eaten cookie.  They really do resemble the greedy, cookie loving, Seseme Street character!

The recipe below is a little more extravagent and naughty than most though.  Our Cookie Monster Cupcake recipe not only has the ruffled buttercream fur, chocolate goofy eyes, and a half eaten cookie, but also has a full tummy in the form of chocolate chips in the sponge and a chocolate ganache piped into the centre of the baked cupcake.  After all, any self resepcting Cookie Monster will surely have a tummy full of chocolate!

As mentioned above, these Cookie Monster Cupcakes are surprisingly easy to make.  In fact they're very easy to make!  To share how to make a Cookie Monster Cupcake and to, hopefully, convey how easy they are to assemble I've attempted to shoot a video, below, which you may like to watch!     





So, let's get to it and bake Cookie Monsters with a Full Tummy of Ganache!



















Pin it for later!

    1. It stands to reason doesn't it, that Cookie Monster will have a full tummy of chocolately goodness ;-) The team which hubby works with didn't get any, they had all been sold by the time they got to the table - so another batch was made just for them :-)
