Chocolate chip cupcake with blue cookie monster frosting
I have wanted to make these FOREVER!! So I got a request to make them for a communion after party! So I made a chocolate chocolate chip cupcake to start. Plain frosting with blue colour paste!
I had great intentions with these, I had planned on fresh cookies for there mouths but never got around to doing it AND when it came to frosting the store was obviously closed! My sister was horrified that I used digestives but I think they look ok!! 😀
– and here’s the recipe!
Ingredients for cupcake
300g self raising flour
4 tbsp cocoa powder
1 tbsp baking powder
200g caster sugar
100g chocolate chips
220ml sunflower oil
Preheat oven to 220ª
Beat eggs till foamy
Mix dry ingredients
Make a well in the middle of the dry ingredients and add the eggs, milk and oil.
Add chocolate chips
Pop into cupcake cases and bake for 25- 30 minutes
So of course as always I forgot to get a few bits for this! I ended up using crafty googly eyes that were not edible! For a first attempt I reckon they turned out pretty good!! 😀
500g icing sugar
160g unsalted butter
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
blue food colour paste
Whip together the icing sugar, butter and add milk a little at a time, then add the vanilla.
Use a toothpick to add the coloring until you get desired colour.
