Reindeer Cupcakes :)

I saw this recipe in my Parents Magazine and thought it would be a great treat for DJ's Preschool Christmas  Party tomorrow! I just got done making 4 dozen of these little guys!

Here are all of the details! {minus the cake mix}

  • 1 Box of Cake Mix
  • Nilla Wafers {Mini's are the best, but I couldn't find any}
  • Pretzels
  • Chocolate Frosting
  • Red M&M's {I just bought a bag and took out all of the red ones}
  • Cupcake holders
  • White Chocolate Chips
First I made the cupcakes as directed and let them cool completely.

Then I frosted them with Chocolate Frosting. My hands were so chocolaty ;)

After all of the frosting, I put the Nilla Wafers on them...

It was time for the eyes... I used the White Chocolate Chips :)

Then comes the tricky part... Every time I tried to break the Pretzels in half they would crumble. So I used a knife to cut them...

And then stuck the "antlers" in the cupcakes...

I made all of the reindeer "Rudolph's" and they all got red M&M noses.. I had to put a dab of chocolate frosting on them so they would stick to the wafers..

And tada....

They are all ready for DJ's party tomorrow!!!
