Melissa and Kellie from Icing Designs gave me a sneak peak at their peppermint hot chocolate cupcakes.

I thought they were so cute and festive (like a warm cup of hot chocolate), I asked them if I could repost their tutorial and they so sweetly said yes! Wait ’til you see how easy it is…

  1. Make chocolate cupcakes
  2. Added a swirl of butter cream frosting
  3. Sprinkled some crushed peppermint and mini chocolate chips on top
  4. Add a mini candy cane for a handle

And voila!!

Here they even piped out little chocolate stars for the top… so cute!
