Start with store-bought oatmeal cookies and you’re more than halfway to these adorable reindeer. This is a great way to get little helpers involved.

198 calories per serving


> 1/2 cup vanilla frosting
> 1/4 cup chocolate frosting
> 1 (7.1 oz) pkg old-fashioned oatmeal cookies
> 16 mini pretzels

As Needed:

> Junior Mints® Minis
> Chocolate-coated raisins
> Mini chocolate chips
> 8 maraschino cherries, blotted dry
> Cinnamon candies


In a small bowl, combine the vanilla and chocolate frostings until blended and smooth. Using an offset spatula or butter knife, spread frosting onto each cookie in a smooth layer.
Place 2 mini pretzels at the top of each cookie to make antlers. Place 2 chocolate candies, raisins, or chips below the pretzels for eyes and a cherry or cinnamon candy for a nose. Cut 4 chocolate candies in half and place one half under the nose to make a mouth.


You can also use red and brown candy-coated chocolate pieces instead of the Junior® Mints and cinnamon candies.
