In terms of novelty recipes, it doesn’t get much better than Cookie Monster - we’ve tried Cookie Monster Fudge, Cookie Monster Cupcakes, and Cookie Monster Oreos, but this recipe for Cookie Monster Cake Pops really takes the cake!
It’s so easy making these for a kids’ party, or even just a fun DIY weekend activity! These are almost too good to eat...but they’re too yummy to pass up!
- 6 sugar cones
- 2 cups white chocolate, chopped
- Assorted blue sprinkles
- Blue and brown M&Ms
- Prepared chocolate cake, 8x8-inch size
- ¼-½ cup chocolate frosting
- 2 cups blue candy melts
- 1 tablespoon shortening
- Candy eyes
- 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!
