Do you have a family dinner coming up? Most people like to cram as many as possible into these couples days around the 25th of December. Well if you do and you offered to bring a dessert here is the answer to your “out of time” prayers. Grab your favorite cupcakes recipe, your favorite butter cream or icing. Ps box cakes and betty crocker icing work just fine for this! Because the wow is all in the presentation.
(all) You will need : A box of mint leaves, White Chocolate and a pan lined in wax paper.
Melt the Chocolate in the microwave in 30 second intervals, (trust me and dont make me post the picture of me forgetting and setting chocolate on fire in the microwave this past summer) Once melted let it cool slightly. Then simply take your finger, dip it in the chocolate and spread it evenly on the mint leaf. Im sure there is a more professional way but this is the easiest way to make it work. Then lay it chocolate side up on the wax paper and refrigerate for 30 min. Repeat the process for a second coat and refrigerate for an hour this time. Make your cupcakes as directed and let cool, ice lightly with your choice of frosting. Peel mint leaves from Chocolate (carefully but fast so it doesn’t melt in your hands) and place on the cupcakes. Arrange it with red jellies or m&m’s to be your berries. Display your cupcakes on a large dish in a circle to resemble a wreath, you can even add a large bow at the top to top it all off! And there you have it an easy but elaborate looking Christmas dessert your families will envy you for making!
TADA! You too can do this! Because I believe in all of you!
