Cookie Monster Sock Puppets & Celebration



Even though the Muppets officially like to recognize Cookie Monster’s Birthday as November 2, it looks like it is also recognized on May 25, the birthday of Frank Oz, one of the famous Jim Henson puppeteers.

We think ANY excuse to celebrate Cookie Monster is a good one!

Celebrate this cookie lover by making your own Cookie Monster puppet!

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper or nonstick baking mats.

In a very large mixing bowl, combine the eggs and sugars. Mix well. Add the salt, vanilla, peanut butter, and butter. Mix well. Stir in the chocolate candies, chocolate chips, raisins, if using, baking soda, and oatmeal. Drop by tablespoons 2 inches apart onto the prepared cookie sheets.
