Reindeer Cupcakes

Too cute to eat? I think not!

When you and the kids can turn a few items from the grocery store into holiday fun… it’s a magical moment! These reindeer cupcakes are really quite easy and the result is adorable enough to serve at any Christmas party whether it’s for kids, a church potluck, bake sale or a family gathering.

How to make reindeer cupcakesWhat you need:

  • A batch of your favorite chocolate cupcakes
  • chocolate icing, pretzels
  • brown or red candy-coated chocolates (or red gumballs)
  • white sugar candies or white chocolate chips
  • melted chocolate chips
  • pretzels
  • microwave-safe bowl
  • toothpick

What you do:

  1. Frost your cupcakes with the chocolate icing.
  2. Stick two white sugar candies or white chocolate chips, points down, in the middle of the top of the cupcake.
  3. Melt about 1 tbsp. of chocolate chips.
  4. Using the toothpick, dab on two brown eyes from the melted chocolate.
  5. Below the eyes, put a brown candy-coated chocolate. Or a red one or red gumball, if you’d like to make your reindeer extra festive!
  6. Stick two pretzels at the top of the cupcake, above the eyes. These are the antlers.
  7. If you like, use a little of the melted chocolate to draw on a mouth. You can use your toothpick for this.
  8. Make up a whole bunch of reindeer to pull Santa’s sled!

Parent Club Tip:
You can also make the eyes by drawing with a food color pen (as shown in the photo) on the white sugar candy.
