Christmas Is The Time...

For treats!

For our friends and family I made some bite size red velvet cupcakes with a cream cheese flower flake. I also made red velvet cupcakes with a cream cheese frosting, sprinkled with crushed peppermint candy canes (thank you Jannie for this delish idea). To accompany these sweets I made my famous S'more bites, classic milk chocolate and peanut butter cup.

I made the snowman cupcakes for every person in our family. The snowmen are made out of large marshmallows cute in halfs. A long toothpick holds them together and sticks into the cupcake itself. I "painted" the faces with dyed frosting and a toothpick. The hats are made of frosting and the cookie portion of an oreo. The hats don't exactly look like a top hat, so I will have to work on that. If you notice, there is a yellow frosting halo on the middle snowman to honor my son Shane. Christmas was such a hard time without him, but I know he is always with me.
