These vanilla snowman cupcakes are rather healthy, that is, until you add in the “snowman” decorations! The cupcakes are made from a boxed mix that has yogurt, water and egg whites added to it. This keep the low-fat factor fairly high. The frosting is made from vanilla extract, sugar, water and unsalted butter. Once the cupcakes are baked and iced, the fun begins – the mini-marshmallows and other candies that go on top aren’t exactly low in fat, but they sure taste great and make these treats look adorable!
