Christmas Cupcakes

What do you do when it’s too cold to go outside and play? We decided to bake some Christmas cupcakes! We used what we had stored in the pantry already and it made for a great afternoon of baking. Carter loved shaking the sprinkles on them to decorate! Find the recipe below for a sweet treat.


  • 1 box white cake mix
  • 3 large egg whites
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup holiday sprinkles (plus more for the toppings)
  • Frosting:
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter softened
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 tbsp milk


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine the cake mix, egg whites, oil, and vanilla. Mix well.
  3. Fold in the chocolate chips and holiday sprinkles.
  4. Pour into cupcake pans with or without liners. Just make sure you spray the pan first!
  5. Bake for 20 minutes. Make your frosting while they bake!
  6. Wait for the cupcakes to completely cool before removing them from the pans and frosting them. You don’t want the frosting melting off!
  7. Frost and decorate away, and then enjoy. Feel free to save some of the extra sprinkles for “Reindeer Food” like Carter did too!
