Easy Hot Cocoa Decorated Cupcakes Hip2Save

If you’re looking for an easy and festive way to decorate a boxed cupcake mix, check out these fun hot cocoa cupcakes. They look fancy, but are actually fairly simple – they just require mini candy canes, marshmallows, and sprinkles.

For these Hot Cocoa Cupcakes you’ll need:

  • 24 chocolate cupcakes (from the box or homemade)
  • 24 mini candy canes
  • white frosting
  • mini marshmallows
  • sprinkles

Directions: Make and cool cupcakes. Frost cupcakes with white icing. Try to leave a little of the chocolate cake showing around the edges (I’ve used this handy Wilton Dessert Decorator for years and I love it!). Sprinkle cupcakes with mini marshmallows and sprinkles. Place a mini candy cane gently on the side of each cupcake – just press down a little and the candy cane should remain in place.

What is the HIP List?

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply add the post to your HIP List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the HIP List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, you first must head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back later to, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account.


When logged into your account, you will then see your HIP List on every page.


If you're wanting to print a certain deal, article, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. That will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include in your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you!


If there are deals that you are not interested in keeping on your list, just click on the minus button to remove it.


Now, just print your customized HIP list whenever you're ready to go shopping and snag some "Hip" deals!
