As an elementary school teacher, I can't wait to make these cupcakes for my students at our Christmas party on the last day we get out for our winter holidays. I know they're eyes will light up with glee! I'm sure my colleagues will want the recipe for sure! Perhaps this "sweet treat" will lead to creative writing stories over the holidays!
