For many of us, it also means that it's time to turn on our ovens, line the counters with ingredients, mixing bowls, roll up our sleeves and get to work my friends. But with my busy schedule, that means lots of late night baking sessions. There are still plenty of cookies to bake and peppermint bark to make.
Christmas is just a fun time to bake and today, I am sharing a recipe for delicious cranberry muffins which I decked out in holiday cheer to bring to the office tomorrow. They are made with fresh cranberries and topped with a simple cream cheese frosting. I decorated them with crushed candy canes, artificial mini trees and sweet reindeer.
These will definitely add a smile to anyone's face. They turned out adorable. And how festive are they? I hope you give this recipe a try.
I like to use baking cups from Simply Baked because you can pour your batter into the cups and bake he cupcakes and they come in so many colors. I normally find them in Home Goods for a few bucks.

Cream Cheese Frosting Recipe
Take a few candy canes and gently crush them in a plastic Ziploc bag with a rolling pin or heavy cup. Spread frosting on the cupcakes and sprinkle the crushed candy canes on top of your frosting. Add the mini tree and reindeer and you are done. I purchased the mini trees and reindeer at Michaels. (70% off this week on all Christmas items) Now enjoy a bite or two...
I hope you all have a great week. Thank you for stopping by and leaving me your lovely comments.
