How to Make Reindeer Cupcakes

What is more fun than making fun holiday treats this winter? Eating them of course! I love making fun treats every year for our neighbors, family and friends. These Reindeer Cupcakes are so simple to make, which is why I love them, and they are so cute, too! The best part is that you don’t have to be a baker to make these cupcakes, just make your favorite chocolate cupcakes from a box or from scratch. Then you can let the decorating fun begin!

  • Place 2 pretzels for ears the top portion of your cupcake. Use a little chocolate frosting to help hold them in place.
  • Add 2 white M&Ms for eyes and add a dot of black icing in the center.
  • Place some icing on the second half of the cupcake and place a vanilla wafer on it (right below the pretzel antlers).
  • Add a small dab of black icing right in the center of your vanilla wafer and place a red or brown M&M over it for the nose.

We made a combination of both regular reindeer cupcakes, along with some Rudolph cupcakes. My kids loved the Rudolph ones the best, but the truth is they both tasted wonderful!
