North Pole Cupcakes & Peppermint Popcorn

We spotted these North Pole cupcakes and just loved them! I made them for my 5 year olds kindergarten class party. They are so easy to make and just look so cute! This is not our idea and I am not sure who originally came up with this, but I did first see them on One Charming Party.

We used white cupcake liners, strawberry cupcakes, white frosting, white decorating sugar for the top, candy canes (with the tops broken off), and red candies. Make your own North Pole sign or go to the One Charming Party link to get their free printable.

This Peppermint Popcorn is something else that we made that I could sit around and eat all day long! We spotted this one of Skip To My Lou. It's so easy. Just a cup of crushed peppermint mixed with 16 oz of white chocolate (or bark). Mix 1/2 a cup of crushed peppermints with 2 regular popped bags of pop corn (or 4 qts). Sprinkle with the rest of the crushed peppermint. It's SO good and great to give away for last minute Christmas goodies!
