Snowman Hot Cocoa Hot Tub Cupcake

Super cute, right? I recently was asked to try the new COOL WHIP Frosting and because we always order cakes with that topping I was excited to know that they are now packaging the good stuff to sell to me! The flavors are chocolate, vanilla and cream cheese…holy yum!

I grabbed what I saw at my store, chocolate and vanilla :)

I saw the cutest Wilton holiday cake decorations so I snagged em. One was what they called a hot coca set with a candy-like snowman that is supposed to float in hot cocoa. This gave me the idea to make hot cocoa cupcakes. I actually found a cake mix that is hot cocoa flavored, what luck! I reserved some of the little marshmallows from the mix for decorations later. For the arms, I used Wilton Decorating candy ropes. I just snipped it lengthwise to split it and make it look like a tree branch.

Next I cut a small pocket in the cupcakes so I could push the snowmen down a little to make them look like they were chilling out in a hot tub of hot cocoa. I slathered some Cool Whip Frosting on top, added my snowman and then sprinkled a few marshmallows on top :)

I didn’t stop there though.. I used another decorating kit from Wilton that is supposed to be for cookies, and I made reindeer cupcakes!

I was very surprised how little frosting I needed, as I am used to regular icing that I make in my mixer. I really love the flavor and the texture is great. It is a great alternative to canned frosting for sure!
