With Christmas just around the corner, these adorable holiday vanilla snowman cupcakes are low fat, easy to make and they are a hit with the kids!

Ingredients

  • 18.25 oz Duncan Hines French Vanilla cake mix (or yellow, classic white)
  • 6 oz fat free plain Chobani yogurt
  • 1 1/3 cups water
  • 2 large egg whites

For the icing:

  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter (melted)
  • 1 tsp clear vanilla extract
  • 2-3 tbsp boiling water

For the face:

  • m&m's for the eyes
  • orange jellybeans or candy corns for the nose
  • sprinkles for the hat
  • mini marshmallows for the cotton part of hat

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°.
  • Line cupcake tins with liners.
  • Combine all the ingredients in a large mixing bowl and beat until combined.
  • Pour into prepared liners.
  • Bake about 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  • Allow to cool before frosting.
  • For the vanilla icing, combine powdered sugar, melted butter and water and beat until smooth.
  • To make snowman face, spread 2 1/2 teaspoons of icing on each cupcake; working quickly, press the candy face into the icing before it hardens. It's best to make one at a time.
