    These are the best snowman cupcakes I have seen while looking through google. I'm using these for a Christmas Bazaar that our school is hosting. Hopefully this makes a lot of money for the fundraiser. Thank you for the good idea and keep making all these good foods. Thank you!

    An easy, delicious and fun recipe! I decorated my cupcakes as Santa and snowmen. For the Santas, I frosted white frosting all around the outside, leaving an opening in the middle for the face. I cut mini marshmallows in half with scissors and lined them across for the hat trim and used one for the pom on top. Red sugar was sprinkled on for the hat and coconut flakes for the beard. The eyes were mini chocolate chips pressed into the cupcake upside down. For the nose, I cut the tip off the end of a pink Mike & Ike candy. The snowmen were frosted all over on top with white icing, using marshmallows and colored sugar for the hats, same as the Santas. The eyes are brown M&Ms, the carrot nose an orange Mike & Ike, and the mouth mini chocolate chips. Have fun making these with your kids for the holidays!
