So it is my kiddos 3rd birthday tomorrow and I am bringing treats to their Birthday Celebration. Since I just make cake pops last week I really did not know which route to take. Then I saw on Penguin Says Feed Me this cutest cookie monster made with colored coconut. Brilliant, I thought and proceeded to marry it with our favorite Coconut Chick Cupcakes.
I followed the step by step instructions but instead of toasting the coconut I left it fresh. Actually I tried to toast it when colored and it just did not look as good so I left it fresh. I also left the frosting white and only concentrated on the coconut.
Place 1/2 bag of coconut in a ziplock back and drop few drops of food coloring until you get desired effect. Continue with red, blue and yellow.
Now it is time to decorate. To make a Cookie Monster roll in blue coconut, add white wafers for eyes and make pupils from chocolate chips or eatable marker. For a cookie I added mini cookie cereal like Cookie Crisp.
For Big Bird I dipped in yellow and colored his eyes with eatable markers. The beak was made by dipping candy corn in yellow melted chocolate.
Elmo was dipped in red, a yellow chocolate wafer was used for his nose.
That is how I made my Sesame Street Bunch. With the leftover coconut, we made these colorful monsters.
They were so tasty and so cool to look at.
