Ingredients

  • 15 Milano Cookies - I used the candy cane variety but the plain will work too.
  • 1/4 cup Dark Chocolate Melting Chips
  • 15 Red Candy Decorations Red Hots
  • 30 Candy Eyes

Instructions

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

Notes

Tip: Put your melted chocolate in a Ziploc baggie. Then just cup off the tip. This will allow you to draw a little easier.
