Our easy Cookie Monster Cookies may resemble the viral recipe from TikTok, but I’ve added my own spin and ingredient swaps to make them even better.

These blue monster cookies begin with a homemade cookie dough base that’s been scooped and stuffed with melty chocolate in the middle and made into a super-sized treat.

Not only are these treats bright and vibrant blue like the famous Cookie Monster Sesame Street character himself, but they’re loaded with chocolate chip cookies, Oreos and stuffed with milk chocolate candy that melts as it bakes.

Chewy, chocolatey, big, and beautiful, each bite brings out the cookie monster in all of us!

  • Quick and easy to make.
  • Uses simple kitchen staple ingredients.
  • Combines cookies and fun into the cutest blue treat you have ever tasted.
  • Fun to bake and enjoy with kids.
  • Perfect for a Sesame Street-themed party, birthdays, baby showers, or snacking while watching the show on tv.
Cookie Monster Cookies ingredients
  • All-purpose flour
  • Baking powder
  • Salted sweet cream butter
  • Light brown sugar
  • Granulated sugar
  • Pure vanilla extract
  • Eggs
  • Royal blue gel food coloring: I used Sunny Side Up Bakery brand.
  • Semi sweet chocolate chips
  • White baking chips: I used Ghirardelli brand.
  • Milk chocolate candy melt wafers
  • Mini Chips Ahoy cookies (or Famous Amos. Optional garnish)
  • Mini Oreo cookies (Optional garnish) 

Substitutions and Additions

  • Stuff The Center: Instead of using candy melt wafers, you can stuff your cookies with Hershey bars or another kind of chocolate candy. Or use a full-sized sandwich cookie to make my Oreo Stuffed Cookies, soft caramel candies to make my Caramel Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies, or nut butter to bake my Peanut Butter Stuffed Cookies.
  • Go Gluten-Free: You can make gluten free monster cookies by using gluten free flour and pressing your favorite gluten free cookies on top.

  1. Make The Flour Mixture: Whisk together the flour and baking powder and set aside.
  2. Make The Batter: Beat the butter until smooth, then mix in the sugars and vanilla extract. Beat in the eggs, one at a time and then mix in the food color gel until the color is uniform and no streaks remain. Add the flour mixture in 1 cup at a time, mixing after each cup. 
    Pro Tip: The color should be vivid and vibrant. You can add extra drops until the desired color is reached. Also, remember that it may fade just a bit when you add the flour. 
  3. Add Chips and Chill: Mix the semi-sweet chips and the white baking chips into the batter. Cover with plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  4. Scoop and Stuff: Scoop the cookie dough and slightly flatten. Place 2 candy melt wafers in the center of each dough ball. Roll the dough around the wafers to form a ball.
  5. Bake: Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 12-14 minutes or until the edges are slightly golden brown. 
  6. Top Your Treats: Immediately after removing the cookies from the oven, top them with cookie pieces. Allow the cookies to rest on the baking sheet for 5-7 minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack.
  7. Serve: Serve and enjoy!

What Type of Food Coloring Should I Use?

I prefer to use gel food coloring for my cookies because it is more concentrated than liquid food coloring, but if you only have liquid food coloring, use twice the amount to give the cookies a bright blue color.

  • You can substitute full-size chopped Oreos and Chips Ahoy for the mini versions.
  • You can add candy eyes as a decoration for the cookies.
  • You can substitute full-size Oreo cookies for the milk chocolate wafers in the center of the cookies.
  • Do not overbake these cookies! They will start to turn brown and we cannot have that!

How to get perfectly round cookies?

This is my favorite trick to get perfectly round cookies! As soon as they come out of the oven, take a drinking glass and surround the just baked cookie. While the cookie is still on the baking sheet, give the cookie a gentle swirl inside the glass. Now you have a perfect round cookie!

  • To Store: Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.
  • To Freeze: You can freeze the cookie dough for up to 1 month. Allow the dough to thaw overnight in the refrigerator before scooping, filling, and baking.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I stuff my cookies with chocolate chips instead of wafers?

I prefer to place milk chocolate wafers in the middle of these cookies for a melted chocolate center. Chocolate chips tend to hold their shape and your cookies won’t have the melty middle.

Can I make a dairy-free version?

Yes, you can make a few ingredient swaps to make dairy free cookies. Use vegan or dairy-free butter, as well as dairy free chocolate and cookies to make this a dairy free recipe.

Do I have to chill the dough before baking?

Yes, you do have to chill the cookie dough for at least 30 minutes before baking. Chilling the cookie dough before baking solidifies the fat in the cookies so it takes longer to melt in the oven than room-temperature fat. And the longer the fat remains solid, the less the cookies will spread as they bake.

What are Cookie Monster Cookies Made Of?

Our cookie monster cookies are stuffed with white chocolate chips and semi-sweet chocolate chips, chopped chocolate chip cookies and chopped Oreo cookies!

Can I leave the Blue Food Coloring Out?

Yes, you can absolutely skip the food coloring and the taste will not be affected at all! Now, they will not be blue, but any Cookie Monster will still think they are delicious!
