I’m considering attempting these for my nephew’s birthday party this Friday. I have to admit that I’m more than a little intimidated. Has anyone ever made these or have tips?

I’m also lovin’ this version with the tutorial here
cute! i’ve seen elmos and cookie monsters made with just icing but i love the way the colored coconut looks too. and it’s probably easier for little hands and mouths to manage 🙂
Love it love it love it! For the eyeballs you could maybe try marshmallows and the bottom of a hershey kiss.
Never done it, but coating the frosting in sprinkles/coconut/whatever you want is pretty easy. Just spread your frosting and round the top, and dip the top in a bowl of your chosen decoration.
I would definitely cut the slit for the mouth AFTER you frost and sprinkle. Let the frosting set (maybe put it in the fridge for a bit?) then carefully slice into the frosting.
Or you could cheat and use half a cookie and just press it into the frosting where the mouth would be.
