Several of you have seen the awesome pics of the cupcakes my co-worker MikeK. baked. He did an awesome job and they were delicious! I have posted the pictures I took during a work event as well as the recipe. Happy baking!!
Large star tip and pastry bag
Cookie Monster head = Cupcakes
Cookie Monster fur = Blue frosting , food coloring, or icing color (dyed coconut can be used as an alternative)

Chocolate chip cookies such as Chips Ahoy or homemade cookies cut in half
Ø Bake the cupcakes J They must be thoroughly cooled down prior to decorating
Ø Once cool, cut a slit in the lower 1/3 of the cupcake
Ø Insert cookie and start icing with a large star tip.
Ø Attach the brown M&M (pupils) to the white disks by either "gluing" together with a dab of frosting
Ø Stick the eyes down onto the cupcake.
