What are some of the fun things that you remember from your childhood? If you are like most people, you probably remember sitting inside and watching Sesame Street. Although there was a lot to learn from that television show, it was the Muppets that kept us watching. One of those Muppets is the cookie monster and even if we haven’t seen Sesame Street in many years, we can still remember him loving cookies!
It’s time to bring the fun of cookie monster home with a unique snack. These cookie monster cake Pops are not only yummy, they are guaranteed to put a smile on anyone’s face. This is perhaps the perfect after school snack or just something to enjoy when you want a fun treat.
6 sugar cones
2 cups white chocolate, chopped
Assorted blue sprinkles
Blue and brown M&Ms
Prepared chocolate cake, 8×8-inch size
¼-½ cup chocolate frosting
2 cups blue candy melts
1 tablespoon shortening
Mini chocolate chip cookies
To make cake rounds, add the prepared cake to a large bowl, then crumble it until it is finely crumbled. Add in the frosting in small amounts, until the cake is moist enough to hold a ball shape.
Using an ice cream scoop, scoop out some of the cake/frosting mixture, then roll into a firm ball. Make sure each cake roll is large enough to fit into the opening of the sugar cones. Repeat until all cake has been rolled.
Melt white chocolate on 30-second intervals in the microwave, stirring in between, until fully melted and smooth. Coat the inside of each sugar cone with white chocolate, allowing any excess to drip out. Dip the rim of each sugar cone into the white chocolate, then quickly dip into the blue sprinkles.
Dip half of each cake round into the melted white chocolate, then press the chocolate-dipped side into the opening of each sprinkled sugar cone. Allow chocolate to set, then move to next steps.
When ready to decorate, melt blue candy melts with shortening on 30-second intervals in the microwave, stirring in between, until fully melted and smooth.
Dunk the set cake pops into the blue candy melts, allowing any excess to drip off. Allow to set.
Carefully attach two candy eyes to the top of the cake pop, using more blue candy melt as needed for “glue.” Carefully cut each mini chocolate chip cookie in half, then quickly attach those to the “mouth” area of the cake pop, again using the melts as “glue” if needed.
Allow to set, then serve and enjoy!
