Snowman Cupcakes

1 18¼-oz. box yellow cupcake mix (or your fave recipe) 24 white cupcake liners 1 32-oz. tub buttercream frosting ½ cup semisweet chocolate chips 1 cup mini chocolate chips 4 orange Starburst candies at room temperature.

DIRECTIONS:

1. Prepare cake mix as directed on package (or whip up your own). Line two cupcake tins with 24 liners. Divide batter evenly, filling liners about 2/3 of the way full. Bake as directed on box; let cupcakes fully cool.

2. Plop 2 tbsp. buttercream frosting onto each cupcake, and smooth with a butter knife.

3. Place two semisweet chocolate chips upside down in the frosting for eyes. Fill a small sandwich bag with ¼ cup frosting, making sure the icing fills the corner of the bag. Cut a tiny hole in the corner and squeeze two white dots on top of each chip.

4. Then place five mini chocolate chips upside down in a semicircle to form a smile.

5. For the nose, pinch off a pea-size amount of Starburst, shape into a triangle, and place on cupcake between the eyes and smile.
