Frost the entire cupcake. Dip one half of the cupcake in the red crystal sprinkles to coat. This will be his hat. Create a brim with white chocolate chips. Add a ball at the tip of his hat. Place two mini chocolate chips for his eyes and a single M & M for his nose. Give Santa a beard with the shredded coconut, pressing it under his nose and right up to the brim of his hat. Repeat for multiple Santa Clauses.

Frost the entire cupcake. Dip one half of the cupcake in the green crystal sprinkles to coat, creating the hat. Create a brim by cutting a gummy worm in half length wise. Cut a gummy worm into a small medallion to be the ball at the tip of the hat. Place two mini chocolate chips for the eyes and a single green M & M for the nose. With scissors, cut two triangles off of a strawberry marshmallow for the ears. Repeat for multiple elves.
