These cupcakes can be achieved by using your favourite chocolate cupcake recipe, whether that be an indulgent chocolate recipe, Gluten Free recipe, Vegan recipe or even Dairy Free recipe.

Melting Snowman Christmas Cupcakes

Why not give every snowman a different personality? You could have happy snowmen, shocked snowmen or worried snowmen. Is it too far to give them all names?, we think not!

These fun and tasty Christmas Tree Cupcake toppers will help you turn any cupcake in to a Festive work of art! Simply follow the instructions below for the transformation!

  • Purchase candy melts and melt according to package directions
  • Place the melted candy melt chocolate into a piping bag an cut a very small hole in one corner of the bag
  • Place pretzel sticks on a cutting board or sheet pan lined with baking paper
  • Pipe the melted chocolate onto the pretzel sticks in the shape of Christmas trees
  • Decorate with candy sprinkles (we recommend Baubles & Wishes or Sprinkle Bell Rock)
  • Allow the trees to harden and then gently remove them from the baking paper
  • The toppers can be made up to two days in advance – keep them in an airtight container until ready to use.
