    They are Trix cereal treats with marshmallow fluff on top. Just follow the recipe for Rice Krispie Treats but substitute Trix cereal. A huge hit with the kids!

    Thanks! I cut strips of cardstock and ran them through the sewing machine to create garlands. You can DIY or buy them through thefairygodhostess.etsy.com

    Did you bake the cupcakes in the jars?

    Hi Erin, I did bake them in the jars. I filled them a little less than halfway and baked them at 350 for 6 minutes (oven times probably vary). I reccomend doing only a few the first time so you know you're getting the right height. Then I frosted and put the lid on!

    I am making these as my daughters favors for her 1st Birthday party next week, so excited to see how they turn out. I actually got a recipe to use neon food coloring for the cake mix. Thanks for the original idea!
