Sweet Treats for Christmas

The cute reindeer cupcakes are perfect for your child’s class Christmas parties. I found the idea in my Family Fun magazine in 2010.

What you will need:

  • Cupcakes (homemade or store bought, any flavor)
  • Chocolate  and vanilla frosting
  • Red and brown M&Ms
  • Vanilla and chocolate Tootsie Rolls midgets
  • Black gel icing
  • Twisted pretzels-broken in half (larger ones work best)

What to do:

  • Frost your baked and cooled cupcakes with chocolate frosting.
  • Pipe on some vanilla frosting for a snout.
  • Add a red or brown M&M for the nose.
  • Pinch of two pieces of vanilla tootsie roll and roll into little balls(eyes). Dot your eyes with the black gel icing.
  • Break or cut the chocolate tootsie roll in half and pinch into an ear shape.
  • Place broken pretzel pieces in place for the antlers.

What new treat will you try this year?
