But it quickly became a family favorite, and a very special Christmas Eve treat.
The best part of these cupcakes is that they are super super simple!
Red sugar crystals
Frost your cupcake with the vanilla frosting.
Dip the top 1/3 of the cupcake in the red sugar crystals.
Add marshmallow trim to Santa's hat.
Add M&M eyes + a red nose.
Make a beard out of mini marshmallows.
Oh man, I am so excited for Christmas now! Not that I wasn't before, but now...so so excited!
