Cookie Monster Cookie Dough Cupcakes
For the cookie dough:
220g softened butter
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
4 tbsp milk
1 tbsp vanilla
2 1/2 cups flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup mini chocolate chips
For the cupcakes:
Your favorite vanilla cupcake recipe or box mix (I used Betty Crocker Vanilla Cake Mix)
1 Quantity of our Best Ever Buttercream frosting coloured blue using gel paste
White Marshmallows, halved
Black gel icing pen
Chocolate Chip cookies, halved (I used chips ahoy)
To make the cookie dough: cream the butter and sugars in an electric mixer until light and fluffy (2 mins). Add milk and vanilla until smooth. Beat in the flour and salt until just combined. Stir in the chocolate chips. Shape the dough into balls.. Freeze overnight.
To make the cupckaes: follow recipe instructions, spoon batter into cupcake papers until 1/2 full. Drop in frozen cookie dough ball. Add a little more batter on top. Bake as per cupcake recipe instructions. Cool.
To decorate: Using either a grass or star tip frost cupcakes. Place halved marshmallows as eyes, use the black icing gel pen to draw on pupils (don't forget Cookie has googly eyes). Cut a small horizontal line in the cupcake and push in halved cookie as his mouth.
2 packets of Strawberry Jello
6 tablespoons unflavored Gelatine
White Chocolate Melts
Black gel icing
Orange gel icing
Mix the two packets of strawberry jello with unflavored gelatin; add 4 cups boiling water and stir until dissolved; add 3 cups cold water. Lightly spray Elmo pan with vegetable
pan spray and pour in jello mixture. Refrigerate overnight.
Sit pan on top of a warm wet cloth to ease jellmo out of the pan. Place on cake board or plate. Melt white chocolate and spilt into three bowls, colour one orange and one black. Paint Elmo’s eyes with the plain white chocolate, his nose with the orange and his pupils and mouth with the black.
Fairy Wand Cookies
90g butter, chopped
1/3 cup caster sugar
3/4 cup flour
1/4 cup self-raising flour
2 tablespoons custard powder
1 egg, lightly beaten
200g white chocolate melts, melted
10 ice-block sticks
Star-shaped cookie cutter
Cachous, coloured sugar or sprinkles
Place the butter, sugar, flours and custard powder in an electric mixer. Beat until fine and crumbly (about 30 seconds).
Add the egg and process until a soft dough forms (20 seconds)
Turn onto a floured surface and knead for 30 seconds. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.
Line two baking trays with baking paper. Roll the dough out between two sheets of baking paper to a 3mm thickness.
Cut the dough into star shapes using a 9cm star-shaped cutter.
Arrange the stars on the baking trays and bake for 15 minutes at 180°C or until golden. Cool on the trays.
Place 1/2 teaspoon of melted chocolate on the flat side of half of the biscuits. Attach the sticks. Sandwich
the remaining biscuits over the chocolate and press to secure. Allow the chocolate to set.
1. Put small dots of frosting on one side of the biscuit. Top with coloured balls. Or
2. Spread extra melted white sugar and coat with sprinkles or coloured sugar.
