Hi friends! Happy Holidays!! I’m at it again with the cookie decorating! The grandkids and I were hanging out for the afternoon, while everyone else was at work, so we thought it would be fun for to make some Reindeer Cookies.
These Reindeer Cookies are just like the Zombie Cookies and the Frankenstein Cookies we made at Halloween! The kids love to decorate them. Plus, you can’t go wrong with chocolate-covered, peanut butter cookies…am I right?
They aren’t perfect, but when you’re baking or decorating with toddlers, is perfection really necessary? We had fun! That’s what matters.
Start with a dozen (maybe more for snacking while you decorate) Nutter Butter Cookies. Melt the Cocoa Candy Melts according to the package directions, then carefully dip each cookie into the melted candy. Tap off the excess and set them on wax paper to dry. While the candy is still warm, add the mini pretzel twists for antlers, candy eyes and a mini M&M for the nose. The kids wanted all of them to be Rudolph, so we used red and orange M&M’s, but feel free to make brown or even blue noses for your Reindeer.
The final touch was using a little bit of decorating gel to make happy faces.
What do you think? It was a great way to spend the afternoon! Since the cookies are store-bought, you don’t have to heat up the oven. The kids can help assemble the toppings, then you melt the Candy in the microwave and go for it!
Hmmmm… I wonder what kind of cookies we’ll make next? What are your favorite holiday cookies? Share with me in the comments below about your favorite cookies and what I should try next with the grand babies!
