You don’t have to add a candy kiss beret to make him French, but we just had to. The fun with these snowman cupcakes is decorating them however you like. The kitchen crew gathered various candy, put on some Christmas music and had a ball.

Since no two snowmen are alike or perfect, this is a wonderful baking project to do with the kids…everyone can express their creativity. This holiday season, or anytime you want a little winter wonderland in your belly, gather any fun candy decorations you have around the house and have a snow ball!

French Snowman Cupcakes
Yields: 12 cupcakes

Ingredients:
12 prepared cupcakes from one white cake mix
2 cans prepared white frosting
12 large marshmallows
2 cups coconut
candy for decorating:

mini chocolate chips for eyes and buttons
fruit strips, cut in two for a colorful scarf

Directions:
Frost cupcakes with a rounded mound of the frosting.  Place the coconut in a bowl and dip the frosted cupcakes in the coconut.  Place dipped cupcakes on a baking sheet and put tray in the refrigerator for 20-30 minutes.  Remove from the refrigerator and using the remaining frosting as glue for the snowman’s clothing, eyes and nose.

Paula, I am glad to know that I am not the only person who makes Easter Baskets for their adult children and mail them across the United States. My Daughter lives in Long Beach, CA and I not only sent her a basket but her husband and my granddaughter Reese. We also buy special Russel Stover Bunnies for each child too. My husband has the list in his phone... Sara .. Cookies 'n Crème.... Sidney and Stephen.. Peanut Butter Etc. It one of my favorite things to do for my kids.. no matter how old they get. And passing it along to my Grandchildren. It's even more special to me knowing we share a family tradition. Blessings and Happy Easter!!
