Chocolate Reindeer Cookies Recipe
I love these Chocolate Reindeer Cookies. They are so festive and easy to make.
- 1 package Devil's Food Cake Mix
- 2 eggs
- ¾ cup vegetable shortening
- 1 small container of chocolate frosting
- 1 bag holiday colored M&M's
- 24 mini vanilla wafers
- 48 pretzel twists
- 48 edible eyes
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Mix together cake mix, eggs and shortening until well combined. The dough will be pretty thick.
Roll dough into 1-inch balls, making sure they are all similar in size.
Place dough onto ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 8 minutes.
Immediately transfer cookies to a cooking rack.
Frost the cookie with chocolate frosting.
Place on the vanilla wafer for the reindeer snout.
Stick the M&M nose on the wafer with a small dab of chocolate frosting.
Place the pretzels on for the antlers.
And then place the edible eyes on just above the wafer cookie.
Instead of M&M's you can use
