Made these for the girls birthday party in 2011. I just did Elmo and Cookie Monster, but made a couple of changes. First, I used colored sprinkles instead of colored icing, which made it much easier. You can get the colors on amazon. Second, I use the white round chocolate melts you can get at the craft store for the eyes. For Elmo's nose you can use an orange gumdrop, or buy candy oranged and cut them into small pieces. The girls loved them!
