I think it's safe to say that every kids favorite Sesame Street character should definitely be Cookie Monster, and if they say it's Elmo, they're wrong! There's really only one choice! What better way to celebrate the greatest Sesame Street character ever than with these adorable Cookie Monster-inspired Macarons. They're made by Jill from Kitchen Fun With My 3 Sons, and they even include the full recipe and instructions on how to make them yourself! They're practically the coolest idea for a Sesame Street themed kids birthday party!
Each Cookie Monster macaron is made with blue food coloring to get that perfect cookie monster blue, and they feature his signature googly eyes on top. The macarons are slightly split in the middle to make it looks like Cookie Monster's mouth, while each one has a mini cookie hanging out of it's mouth. Though, it's probably safe to say, Cookie Monster has never left a cookie hanging out of his mouth for more than a microsecond.
Ingredients needed to make the Cookie Monster Macrons include: Egg White, Powdered Sugar, Almond Flour, Granulated Sugar, Butter, Heavy Cream, Vanilla Extract, Candy Eyes, Miniature Chocolate Chip Cookies. Though it takes some slight skills with the hands to make macrons perfect, they take just 10-15 minutes to bake in the oven, and will certainly be an instant hit and conversation piece at any kid or adult party.
In total the Cookie Monster Macarons take 1 hour of prep time, and 10-15 minutes of cook time. A piping bag and parchment paper will also be very helpful in preparing the Sesame Street themed macarons.
If you plan on having a Sesame Street themed birthday party in your future, look no further than these amazing Cookie Monster Macarons!

This was actually my first time making them. I was intimidated as well, but I just followed the recipe and steps here and everything turned out great! I think people make a big fuss about them because they could be very finicky, but if you follow the recipe and steps to a tee, I don't see why they wouldn't turn out great!
