Reindeer cookies

Today we are making Reindeer cookies and these are one of my favorite easy to make Christmas cookies. We love baking and have a bunch of cookies in our Christmas cookie exchange recipes series.  I hope you are having as much fun as we are.

We are cheating a bit by using Milano cookies and then decorating them. I like things to be frugal, but I also like to be able to make them quick (especially around the holidays).

Milano cookies are delicious, and they are the perfect shape to make these adorable reindeer cookies. I used the candy cane variety, but if your store doesn’t has those, that is ok. The regular ones work just as great.

How to make Reindeer Cookies:

  1. Place chocolate chips in corner of zippered sandwich bag and microwave 45 seconds.
  2. Knead candy to make sure it is melted (if not, heat 15 more seconds).
  3. Cut tiny piece off of corner to pipe.
  4. Use as chocolate as “glue” to affix the candy eyes and the candy nose to each.
  5. Pipe antlers above eyes on each cookie.
  6. Allow to set completely before serving.

In no time, you will adorable Reindeer cookies! I know my kids are going to love them.

The main tip I need to give you is to put your chocolate melted in a Ziploc baggie. Then just cup off the tip.

This will allow you to draw a little very easily. Remember, they don’t have to be perfect. The imperfections are what make these cookies so adorable!

Also, feel free to use what you have. If you don’t have candy eyes, you can use chocolate chips for the eyes. We have also used mini m&m’s for the nose.

The cookies are super easy and you can use what you have or can get on sale. You know we like to save money and time. Just keep it simple. 🙂

    Are you kidding?!?! This is for every non-baker who is envious of the ones who bring all the great Christmas cookies to the party. So simple even I could do it. And that’s saying a lot. It inspired me to get a little more sophisticated and this was the year I baked Christmas cookies from scratch. This is an outstanding confidence builder. Give it a try you’ll love it. OK everybody knows you bought the Malano cookies, but they’re so adorable nobody cared.
