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!

Ingredients:
12 prepared cupcakes from one white cake mix
2 cans prepared white frosting

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.
