Is it just me, or do Snowman Cupcakes just signal the beginning of winter and the holiday seasons? We are big snowman lovers here, with about 70% of our holiday decor being snowman in some way. I guess it’s only right to share a recipe featuring the jolly winter creature, wouldn’t you agree?
The thing I love about this recipe is the marshmallows – I am also a fan of them and can eat them straight from the bag! Actually, having a second bag around when I’m making these snowman cupcakes is probably a great idea.
Okay, without further ado — I give you…
