1. Peppermint Bark Cupcake –  Magic Kingdom – The perfect accompaniment to that cup of Hot Cocoa, you’ll find this seasonal goodie at both Plaza Ice Cream Parlor and Storybook Treats.  Its comprised of a red velvet cupcake filled with peppermint mousse and topped with cream cheese, buttercream, peppermint sprinkles and peppermint park.

2. Cotton Top Tamarin Cupcake – Animal Kingdom – This is one of two cupcakes on our list that you can get all year round but its so amazing we had to include it.  You’ll find this tasty treat at Creature Comforts on Discovery Island where you can also get your favorite Starbucks drink to go with it. The cupcake is made up of a chocolate cake base, topped with chocolate buttercream icing, chocolate shells and a dark and white chocolate Cotton Top Tamarin.  This is a pretty hearty treat making it perfect for sharing.
