Wonder Park Peanut the Monkey Cookie Pops
This post is in partnership with Paramount Pictures. All ideas are my own.
We are excited about the new movie Wonder Park in theaters March 15th. Wonder Park tells a story of a wildly creative girl named June who imagines a magnificent amusement park that comes alive! With the help of fun and lovable park characters, she will have to put the wonder back into the park before it is lost forever. You will love the beautiful animation and positive messages of imagination, creativity
We think the character Peanut, a monkey who is also the park’s ride maker, the monkey is super cute and couldn’t wait to make these fun monkey pops in celebration!
Get to know Peanut a little better in the clip below!

How to Make Peanut the Monkey Cookie Pop from the Movie Wonder Park
Melt chocolate in a double boiler over low heat. Take apart cookie. Put melted chocolate inside the cookie and place the sucker stick on top. Put the cookie back together and allow chocolate to completely harden. The cookie will be thicker, that is okay. This will make it easier to attach the ears.
While the cookies are setting complete the next two steps before dipping the cookies.
1.Place the pastry tip inside the pastry bag. Place a bit of melted chocolate in the bag and pipe a furry tuft onto wax paper. Allow to completely harden. When not using the chocolate wrap in a warm towel to keep it from hardening and clogging the tip.
2.Using a serrated knife cut the mini vanilla wafers in half. Take the knife and gently carve the cookies to look
When chocolate holding the cookie stick is completely hardened begin dipping the cookies. Lay them flat on parchment paper.
Before the chocolate completely hardens add ears, mouth, eyes and tuft of hair (not pictured). Dipping the edges of the ears in the melted chocolate will help them attach easier.
Pipe on a mouth and nostrils with the melted chocolate.
You have the cutest monkey!
It wouldn’t be Peanut from the movie Wonder Park without green eyes! Use the edible green marker to give the eyes a bit of color!
Now you have Peanut!
Are you ready to get crafty in the kitchen, After all, we all can be like June and create anything we imagine!
Check out the movie with your family when it comes to theaters on March 15th!
