Reindeer Cupcakes

image

Happy First Day of December!!  Let the countdown to Christmas officially begin!!  To kick off and get you in holiday mood, I have a cupcake to share with you.  Cupcakes don’t get much easier or cuter than these.

 

{You Will Need}
Gumdrops

Chocolate Chips

Christmas M&M’s or Royal Icing Eyeballs, find how-to HERE

Cupcakes

Chocolate Frosting

Cocoa Powder

 

{To Make}

Bake cupcakes, let cool.  Frost with chocolate frosting.  Lightly sprinkle frosted cupcakes with cocoa powder.  Add gumdrop for nose and M&M’s or eyeballs. 

For antlers:  Melt chocolate in microwave, stirring every 30 seconds depending on microwave.  If too think add 1/2 TBS of shortening.  Put melted chocolate in freezer ziplock bag.  Snip off small corner of bag (remember you can always make it bigger, but you can’t take back and make it smaller!).  Pipe chocolate onto cookie sheet lined with waxed paper.  Let chocolate completely harden (speed up process by putting it in the fridge or freezer). 

When chocolate antlers have completely set up gently stick antlers in cupcakes.
