Reindeer Cupcakes

Santa Strawberries
Christmas Fudge Cutouts

How cute are these? These little Reindeer Cupcakes are so easy to make and fun to show off! They make a great Cooking With Kids project because kids can pretty much do it all by themselves. (Yea for that!)

Ready to get started? Here’s how to put these together.

Start by making a batch of your favorite cupcakes.

Make cake mix for cupcakesI chose German Chocolate because it’s not my favorite. (I LOVE cupcakes, so making them in a flavor I don’t much care for makes it a teeny bit easier to resist!)

Pour mix into muffin panOnce you’ve baked the cupcakes, be sure to let them cool completely so the frosting doesn’t melt when you spread it on. Go play a game, check Facebook, clean the kitchen…something like that. Come back when they’re cool and spread the frosting on each cupcake.

Spread frosting on each cupcakeUse two of the small pretzels for antlers, two chocolate chips for the eyes and one red M&M for the nose.

decorate cupcakes with pretzels and m&m's

That’s it! Super easy to assemble and are so cute. These would be great to take to any Christmas get-together you have coming up.
