Frosty the Cupcake

From Family Fun's website
RECIPE INGREDIENTS:
Cooled cupcakes
White frosting
Large marshmallows
Waxed paper
Pretzel sticks
Black decorators' gel or mini chocolate chips
Orange slice candy
Junior Mints
Thin Mints or Mint Grasshopper Cookies
Fruit by the Foot cut into long strips

1. Frost a cooled cupcakes with white icing.
2. Flatten a large marshmallow on waxed paper with the palm of your hand.
3. Put a second marshmallow on top to form a torso and head.
4. Push a thin pretzel stick down through the snowman (this will help him stand up), then set him on the cupcake.
5. Use decorators' gel or mini chocolate chips to create a mouth, eyes, and buttons, then add pretzel stick arms and a wedge cut from an orange slice candy for a nose.
6. Accessorize with a candy hat (a Junior Mint secured to a Thin Mint with icing) and a piece of fruit by foot for the scarf.

Note: The decorators' gel didn't work well for me. It ran and looked like mascara running when a woman is crying. The mini chocolate chips with a bit of frosting on the back of them worked better for me.

Cute! I need to remember this recipe when winter comes again. These would be perfect for holiday treat plates. They're so pretty!
