Chocolate Reindeer Cookies

I love these Chocolate Reindeer Cookies. They are so festive and easy to make. I love getting my little ones involved when I make these.

Christmas is upon us, and Santa is packing his sleigh. I am in love with Christmas baking and cookies for the neighbors and Santa.

I found these on Pinterest and just had to make them because they are adorable. These cookies are fail proof, and your kids can even help you decorate them. Merry Christmas.

where can i find the candy eyeballs?

These eyeballs make the entire cookie. They are so cute, and add so much personality. These are found on the sprinkle aisle, at every grocery store.

They are usually on the same aisle as the cake mixes and the frosting. They are very inexpensive, and go perfect with these. And yes, they are edible.

If you can’t find the candy eyeballs, you could also just use black frosting and do two small dots for eyes, and they would be just as cute.

what could i use instead of m&m’s?

I love the extra chocolate crunch of these cookies, with the M&M’s, however, you could also use other small red candies, that would work just as well. Here are a few ideas:

-Red Hots
-Boston Baked Beans Candy
