“Sesame Street” puppet master Lara MacLean reveals the cookie recipe used for Cookie Monster .The cookies are made of pancake mix, puffed rice, instant coffee, water, and grape-nuts
The chocolate chips on the cookies are actually made from colored hot glue .These cookies contain no sugar, fat, or oil to avoid staining Cookie Monster's fur
The updated recipe in 2000 replaced rice crackers and foam, which used to get stuck in Cookie Monster's fur and didn't look like cookies after he smashed them into his face.
Below you'll see the video of a Cookie Monster Cookie recipe that went viral last year on TikTok of what PEOPLE thought the cookie should be. NOTHING like what you see above 😂
