 Ingredients List

  • ”¢ 2 cups buttercream frosting (Savory Sweet Life recipe here)
  • ”¢ Blue food coloring
  • ”¢ 1 ½ cups sweetened shredded coconut
  • ”¢ 6 large puff marshmallows cut in half with kitchen scissors to form the eyes
  • ”¢ 24 chocolate chips
  • ”¢ 1 dozen unfrosted cupcakes
  • ”¢ 6 chocolate chip cookies cut in half


Ӣ Add a few drops of food coloring to the frosting. Mix the frosting until the color is uniformly blended in.

Ӣ Add the shredded coconut to a zip top bag. Add a few drops of food coloring to the coconut and seal the bag. Shake the coconut until uniformly tinted. Add more drops if needed until desired color is achieved. Transfer the tinted coconut to a bowl.

Ӣ Using a tooth pick or pointed chop stick, poke a hole through each marshmallow off center and closer to the edge. With its tip pointed down, push one chocolate chip down deep into the non-sticky flat side of the marshmallow to form the pupil. Repeat this with each chocolate chip and marshmallow.

Ӣ To frost the cupcake, place a cup of frosting into medium large zip-top bag. Seal the bag and cut one of the bottom corners off. Pipe enough frosting (2-3 tablespoons) in a circular motion to cover the surface of the cupcake. You can also frost each cupcake using a butter knife.

Ӣ Dip the cupcake tops into the shredded coconut until fully coated.

Ӣ Place two marshmallow eyes side by side towards the top of each cupcake.

Ӣ Finish the cupcakes off by placing a half cookie either flat or at a 45 degree angle towards the bottom of the cupcake to complete the famous Cookie Monster look.
