These little reindeer were inspired by what seems to be a very popular way of decorating cookies... but I made cupcakes into reindeer instead.
They are just chocolate cupcakes with vanilla frosting and brown food coloring. Chocolate chips for eyes and M&Ms for noses. The extra big Rold Gold Pretzel thins make the antlers. I think they need extra big antlers... regular pretzels would make them look like regular deer. And that is just not acceptable.
Here's Rudolf with his red nose.
And the whole sleigh team ready to dash away.
"Now, Dasher! Now, Dancer! Now, Prancer and Vixen!
On Comet! On, Cupid! On Donder and Blitzen!
