These freeze wonderfully and are hardy enough to send overseas to my son in afghanistan. This was my mother's recipe as is the photo.

  2. POWDERED SUGAR FROSTING :

    - Blend all ingredients. The frosting should be thin but not drippy.
  3. Spanish Peanuts:
    Finely chop peanuts (A one cup food processor works great for the peanuts!)
  4. - Frost the (unwrapped) sides first and then the top of the cupcake.
    - Press the top down into crushed Spanish Peanuts. Roll the sides.
  5. QUICK METHOD:
    Make cupcakes according to instructions on a boxed
    cake mix.

    Thin a can of White frosting with milk. (Make sure it is thin, but not drippy)

    Then roll in the peanuts.
