Because I’m always looking for fun Holiday treats, I figured I’d whip up some cute Christmas cupcake recipes this year. I usually only go as far as using festive cupcake liners and toppers, but decided instead to go on a hunt for some creative Christmas cupcake ideas that were easy and fun for the kids.

Santa Cupcakes

Santa Clause cupcakes are easy! All you will need are some fun toppings. You can use red sprinkles for the hat, marshmallows or shredded coconut for his infamous white beard, and chocolate chips or other small candy pieces for his eyes and nose. Even easier–Santa hat cupcakes! Cut off the stem end of strawberries and place them upside down on white frosted cupcakes. Top them off with a little extra icing or whipped cream.[/dt_sc_one_half]

Let the kids decorate the trees with sprinkles, M&M’s, or other small pieces of candy.

Reindeer Cupcakes

Rudolph would be proud of these awesome little chocolate reindeer cupcakes. Pretzels make for perfect edible antlers. I also like the idea of using a vanilla wafer and red piece of candy for the nose.

Snowman Cupcakes

Stack a large marshmallow on top of a mound of white frosting, and you’ve got Frosty the snowman! This is a fun Christmas cupcake idea for the kids to decorate. You can make the base and then let them garnish it with candy eyes, hats, noses, scarves, buttons, ear muffs, and so forth.

Elf Cupcakes

Don’t forget about all the hard working elves! If you can make edible pointy hats & ears, you’ve got yourself an awesome little elf cupcake recipe. In the examples shown below, they used Fruit Roll-Ups (you could also use fruit leather) and upside down waffle cones sprayed with edible green spray dye.

Candy Cane Cupcakes

Candy cane or peppermint is just so yummy mixed with chocolate cake! Sprinkle crushed candy cane, peppermint candy bark, or even a candy cane kiss on top of frosted cupcakes. I especially like the idea of baking a candy cane kiss in the center of your cupcakes–it’s a sweet little surprise hidden inside.

Gingerbread Cupcakes

I’ve always been a big fan of gingerbread and ginger snap cookies. Plop a little gingerbread man cookie on top of a cupcake, and voila! It instantly adds a Christmas feel. Check out the gingerbread man below baked inside of a cupcake! That is just too cool.
