The thief sent a ransom note to a Hanover-area newspaper demanding bakery Bahlsen donate boxes of cookies to a children's hospital in exchange for its iconic treat. The gargantuan cookie has since been discovered.

The iconic snack, belonging to famed German cookie company Bahlsen, has finally reappeared after a thief dressed as Sesame Street's Cookie Monster swiped it in early January.

Police in Hanover spotted the valuable treat hanging on a statue of a horse in front of a university Tuesday morning and are now working to determine whether it's the company's original trademark treat.
