Easy Hot Cocoa Decorated Cupcakes

8 Comments

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.

    Our local Sweet Tooth Fairy makes these and they are so so adorable. Just make sure that you don’t put them in any sort of airtight container overnight (unless you pull out the candy canes first.) Otherwise the canes will get so sticky and gross! I speak from experience 😉

    I love these. I might have to make cupcakes instead of a cheesecake.
