While browsing through an old issue awhile ago, I noticed a Rice Krispies ad with a recipe for Snap, Crackle, Snowmen from another reader. These adorable holiday food crafts inspired our own festive Rice Krispies Snowman. I've since had so much fun making the cutest Christmas tree Rice Krispie treats and Valentine Rice Krispie treats. These snowmen cupcakes can be made from scratch, or you can decorate simple store-bought cupcakes to turn them into snowmen cupcakes.
