*If using canned icing, scoop icing into a mixed bowl and whip on high for 3-5 minutes for light and fluffy icing)
Pre-heat oven to 325F.
In a large bowl, mix together cake mix, hot chocolate packets, eggs, oil and milk.
Line a muffin/cupcake tin with paper liners.
Fill each cupcake liner 1/2 full of batter.
Bake at 325F for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and cool on wire rack.
Once the cupcakes are cool, use a spoon to scoop some of the icing onto the cupcakes. Use the back of the spoon to cover the cupcake top with icing forming a bit of a mound in the middle.
Sprinkle sugar onto the top of the cupcake to resemble "snow".
Decorate the cupcakes with different Christmas candies.
