Cookie Monster Branches Out and His Famous Cookie Dough

Cookie Monster

I have some competition out there… When I was little, I wanted the Cookie Monster’s job.  Eating cookies all day sounded like a good gig.  Sesame Street sounded like a nice place to relocate.  Do I have to worry about the Cookie Monster coming into the world world of chocolate next?

“Me think that it time to branch out beyond me cookie-eating career.” ~ Cookie Monster, Sesame Street. (on announcing in an “audition tape” posted on his Facebook page that he wants to “take the next logical step” and host “Saturday Night Live”.)  I think it’s a great idea.  Cookie was fantastic playing Alistair Cookie on Monsterpiece Theatre.  He has been eating cookies for about forty years now. Learn a new skill and live a longer live.

I’m watching my back, because you just never know.  Sounds like the Cookie Monster has no plan to retire, but to move on into different areas.  The Chocolate Monster?  Maybe.  He has way more character and charisma than I do!

This recipe came from Big Birds Busy Book, from back in the 70’s. It’s great for little ones first adventures in the kitchen!
