Also, guys (guys, girls, moose, cats), I have so many stories to tell you! Like about how we got our 18 foot Christmas tree in the house. And no, we weren’t that car that was stopped in MA for having a giant tree on a tiny car. I got tagged in that article 17 times. Different town! Also, we have a hulking minivan. Photos will follow! Also, I met my new niece yesterday and that was an entire adventure on its own. I walked away from my life for one whole perfect day. Here’s a sneak peek:
Adorable, right? Right. So I have many stories to tell but one of them is a story of holiday recipes! I have so many to share and much less time than I thought. So we shall begin! Mistletoe Cupcakes. The kids love them, ever since I brought home real mistletoe about a week ago. These are easy and festive. There’s not much else to say than that. And that they photograph well, but it’s hard to ruin cupcakes during the holiday season! I make cupcakes from scratch, but hey, go crazy.
- 12 cupcakes
- White frosting
- Red M&M’s
- Green Airhead bites
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Line a 12 cup cupcake pan with liners.
Prepare the cake mix according to directions. Pour into the cupcake pan.
Bake for 15 minutes or until the top is golden brown.
Pipe white frosting onto the cupcakes.
Place 3 red M&M candies in the shape of a triangle for “berries”.
Cut the top of the green Airhead bites to make a triangle at the top for the leaves. Place them behind the M&M candies to complete the Mistletoe cupcakes!
