- 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
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.
