  • 12 chocolate cupcakes made from a boxed cake mix
  • 12 pretzel twists
  • 1 container chocolate frosting
  • 12 pieces red M&M candy
  • 24 Wilton candy eyes
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Line a 12 cup cupcake pan with liners.

  3. Prepare the cake mix according to directions. Pour into the cupcake pan.

  4. Bake for 15 minutes or until the top is golden brown. Let cool.

  5. Pipe the chocolate frosting onto the cupcakes, or dip each one in the frosting to coat the top.

  6. Break a pretzel twist in half to get a curved pretzel. Insert at the top of the cupcake to act as reindeer antlers!

  7. Place two Wilton candy eyes on the cupcake. Below the eyes, place a red M&M candy for a nose.
