These dashing desserts pay homage to some of Santa’s best-known helpers. They also make a fun activity for little hands after a holiday meal. Using pretzels for the antler, abTootsie Roll cut and shaped into ears, a vanilla wafer and Red.Brown.White M&Ms with a little black decorating gel, you too can create Rudolph and his friends that are good enough to eat!
Santa’s Hat Cupcake
A Santa hat Cupcake that is chocolaty and delicious! All you need is red and white icing and of course a choclate cupcake.
This snowman wears a fine winter hat: a chocolate-covered mint AKA Junior Mint beret. His plump figure is two marshmallows, cut a slice off the top one and squish to make it smaller. Dabs of icing hold parts together. His eyes are chocolate sprinkles (poke holes first with a wet toothpick), and his nose is cut from a gummy fruit.
Snow Covered Christmas Tree
Serve this snowy dessert this holiday season. Cupcakes are shaped like trees, thanks to a waffle cone then covered with Snowy Frosting, and sprinkled with sanding sugar. Save some sugar to create beds of “snow” for serving.
Chewy candies come in lots of shapes, and they’re just the right size for decorating cupcakes. Here, a trio of sour-cherry candies and a pair of sugar-frosted spearmint leaves (sliced to make them thinner) look like a sprig of holly in a drift of snow.
North Pole Cupcake
With a candy cane, a little white icing, a cherry sour and a mini sign you can create a north pole that everyone will want to go to!
Pretty Pretty Christmas Tree Cupcake
With some edible pearl candies, adorn your tree with as many “ornaments” as you wish.
