The girls and I made these gifts for our friends this year.  I have always loved the idea of cupcakes in a mug, but wasn’t quite sure how it would work.  After doing a little research, I decided to go easy on myself… the box mix won!

Instead of baking it inside of a mug, I thought that it would be easier to just make the cupcakes and then build them once they had cooled.  I was super exicted to try out Betty Crocker’s latest cupcake mix flavor, too!

I whipped up a batch of the cupcakes and we were ready to build! First, I removed the cupcake wrappers.  Then place one cupcake inside the mug and top with icing. Yes, I used the spray icing… I know you aren’t surprised!  I then repeated the process with another cupcake.  Finally, top your hot chocolate with some marshmallows and a little peppermint stick.  I just used  a candy cane.  If you are giving this as a sweet surprise to someone, I would recommend doing it the same day as the candy canes will melt a little… you could always just add them right before you are ready to eat or gift!

They were so easy to make, delicious, and just too cute!!  Our neighbors loved their gifts and our girls were so proud making the deliveries. Nothing like easy baking and teaching the kids about the gift of  hospitality and thoughtfulness. It was a lot of fun just spending time with them in the kitchen, too!

And yes… we decorated the mugs!  No worries… I promise to show you how to make those in the days ahead!  Stay warm everyone!
