Preheat oven to 325º F. Line 12 mini and 12 standard muffin tin cups with cupcake liners. Fill each mini cup 2/3 full with cupcake batter. Fill each standard cup 1/3 full; Place one 3 MUSKETEERS® Brand Mint with Dark Chocolate Minis in each cup.
Continue filling each cup with batter to 2/3 full. Bake mini cupcakes for 16 – 18 minutes and standard cupcakes for 24 – 26 minutes or until toothpick inserted in cupcakes comes out clean. Cool completely.
Frost cupcakes with white whipped frosting.
Sprinkle evenly with edible glitter.
Roll out dark chocolate colored fondant lengthwise to 1/8-inch thickness. Cut 8-inch x 3-inch rectangle; combine scraps and roll for second 8-inch x 3-inch rectangle.
Cut each rectangle evenly into 6 strips and fringe ends of each, making 12 scarves. Roll remaining fondant into small balls for eyes and tiny balls for mouths. (Keep covered with plastic wrap to prevent drying and cracking.)
Heat blue STARBURST® candies in microwave for 3 to 5 seconds and roll out to 1/8-inch thick.
Cut flattened blue STARBURST® candies into thin strips and create woven plaid pattern on each scarf.
To assemble each Snowman, crisscross scarf and place loop over center of standard cupcake.Top with mini cupcake, placed on its side with iced top facing same direction as scarf.
Make face by inserting eyes, nose, and mouth into frosted mini cupcake. Cut and mold orange STARBURST® candies to create carrot-shaped noses.
To make hat, microwave wafer cookies 5 seconds and cut rounds using 1-inch biscuit cutter. Secure one 3 MUSKETEERS® Brand Mint with Dark Chocolate Minis to center of each round with frosting. Top the Snowman with his candy bar hat…
…step back and admire your work!
