Rudolph and Friends

These dashing desserts pay homage to some of Santa's best-known helpers. They also make a fun activity for little hands after a holiday meal.

Total time: 1 hour, 25 minutes

Servings: 26


  • Pretzels (standard shaped)
  • Chocolate frosted cupcakes
  • Tootsie Roll Midgee
  • Mini vanilla wafer
  • Red or brown M&Ms
  • White M&Ms
  • Black decorating gel


  1. For each "reindeer," carefully snap two pretzels into antler shapes and press them into a chocolate frosted cupcake.
  2. Finish by adding a pair of white M&M eyes dotted with black decorating gel.
  3. Press on a mini vanilla wafer for a snout, then use a small dab of frosting to attach a red or brown M&M nose.
  4. Shape each ear from a third of a Tootsie Roll Midgee and arrange them next to the antlers.


Where to Find It: You can buy single-color bags of M&Ms at your local party or craft store.
