Easy Christmas Treats: Rudolph Cupcakes

All opinions expressed herein are my own!

You don’t have to be a skilled cake decorator to have fun and festive cupcakes for your family this Christmas.  Often, you can make your own cupcake toppers with melting chocolate, candy, OR your printer and a toothpick!  To recreate these Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer Cupcakes, all you need is candy eyes, broken pretzels, and a red milk chocolate candy piece. That’s it!

This easy recipe is also a great cupcake decorating project for your kids! Bake and ice your cupcakes, then let the kids build Rudolph themselves!
