Frosty the Cupcake Recipe

Frosty the Cupcake Recipe

Snow or no snow, your family can whip up a band of these merry marshmallow snowmen to satisfy all their winter wonderland fantasies.


  • Cooled cupcake (baked from your favorite recipe)
  • White icing
  • Large marshmallows
  • Waxed paper
  • Pretzel sticks
  • Decorators' gel
  • Orange slice candy
  • Junior Mints
  • Thin Mints
  • Fruit leather


  1. Frost a cooled cupcake (baked from your favorite recipe) with white icing.
  2. Flatten a large marshmallow on waxed paper with the palm of your hand. Cut a second marshmallow in half horizontally, then stack the halves on the first marshmallow to form a torso and head.
  3. Push a thin pretzel stick down through the snowman (this will help him stand up), then set him on the cupcake.
  4. Use decorators' gel to create a mouth, eyes, and buttons, then add pretzel stick arms and a wedge cut from an orange slice candy for a nose.
  5. Accessorize with a candy hat (a Junior Mint secured to a Thin Mint with icing) and a fruit leather scarf.
