Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer Cupcakes

Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer Cupcakes Ingredients:

Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer Cupcakes Instructions:

  1. Start by preparing your cake batter according to box instructions.
  2. Fill your cupcake liners 1/2 of the way full.
  3. Bake cupcakes according to box instructions.
  4. After baking let cool completely.
  5. If you choose to use a icing pipping kit, fill your icing bag with your chocolate icing.
  6. Start in the middle of the cupcake working your way out and up with the frosting.
  7. I placed my cupcakes in the freezer for about 5 minutes to allow the icing to stiffen up a bit before adding the pretzels. So the icing didn’t slide off.
  8. Next add two pretzels to each side of the cupcake for “antlers.”
  9. Add a Dot candy to the top of each up cake for the “nose.”
  10. Serve and enjoy!
