Looking for the perfect Christmas cupcakes to make? Look no further! These are super easy {you can even use a box mix!} and they are bound to impress everyone. Promise!

Christmas Cupcakes

First, start by making a batch of cupcakes. Like I said, use a simple box mix – or make it fancy with some Starbucks Mocha Cupcakes. Or ya know what? You can BUY the cupcakes, and just make the little chocolate doo-dads to go on top! What!

You will need green and red melting chocolates. If your local store doesn't have them, order them from Amazon. I used about half of a bag of each color, and made 48 cupcakes!

Pour half of the melting chocolates into microwave safe bowls. ONE bowl for EACH color. Do NOT mix the colors. They will turn brown. Trust me on this one…

Pour the melted chocolates into zip loc baggies and cut a very tinnnny hole in one end. Put some wax paper (or parchment paper) on a cookie sheet, and go to town! Drizzle the chocolate, one color at a time, in any shape you want! I did circles, triangles, and I even made Christmas trees. They didn't exactly look like Christmas trees, but I promise that is what they were. The key here is layers. You need to alternate the green and red, so the chocolate will not be so brittle once it freezes. Layer, layer, layer. I think I did 4 layers on most (2 of each color). When I did less, they broke. After you're finished creating, place the cookie sheet in the freezer.

Ice your cupcakes. Remove the chocolates from the freezer and pick them up off the parchment paper. They will be pretty sturdy if you put enough layers, but handle with care because once they're broken, they're broken!

Believe it or not, you can't mess these up! I do recommend putting the cupcakes (with the chocolate doo-dads) in the refrigerator until ready to serve, as the icing melts easily and the chocolate will droop. Again, trust me on this one! If you're bringing these to a holiday dinner, go ahead and put them in the freezer for a half an hour or so, before you leave.

Try these out this holiday and everyone WILL be impressed!
