How to Make Snowman Cupcakes

I used clear sprinkles, regular chocolate chips, mini chocolate chips and orange tootsie rolls but there are plenty of swaps you can make! I used the chunky clear sprinkles because they look like snow, but you can use none at all…just white frosting!  For the eyes I used regular chocolate chips but you can use mini chocolate chips or brown M&M’s! For the mouth I would suggest sticking with the mini chocolate chips because they’re easy to find and work perfectly.  And for the nose you can use any orange candy! Even a butterscotch chip would work. If you use an orange candy like I did or even an orange Starburst you’ll just need to cut the candy to look like a carrot! And there you have it… Easy to Make Snowman Cupcakes!

Aren’t they adorable? And perfect for Christmas! You can make them with with any type of cupcake you want!  Chocolate cake with coconut frosting, yellow cake with vanilla frosting, strawberry cupcakes with almond frosting… you name it!  Just keep the frosting white so it still looks like a snowman! 

By the way, this is my favorite cupcake pan because it has 24 wells in it and its a tad shallower than most pans so you never get that ugly dark rim around your vanilla/yellow cupcakes!  Yay! Best baker’s Christmas gift ever!
