Servings: 12 Yield: reindeer Prep 10 mins


  • 12 mini (2-inch) chocolate glazed doughuts (such as Little Debbie)
  • 12 mini unsalted pretzels
  • 1/4 cup vanilla frosting
  • 12 red M&M's megas

1. Line a cookie sheet with parchment or wax paper. Lay doughnuts, smooth side up, on prepared cookie sheet. To make antlers, use a small serrated knife to cut 3/4 inch from each rounded side of a pretzel, removing center piece.

2. Spoon vanilla frosting into a ziplock bag. Press out excess air and seal bag. Snip a small (1/8-inch) corner from bag. Pipe a dot of vanilla frosting into center of doughnut and attach a red candy, flat side down, into frosting as the nose. Pipe 2 dots of frosting on doughnut above nose and attach brown candies as the eyes.

3. Insert 2 pretzel pieces into top side of doughnut, cut sides facing each other and about 3/4 inch apart, as the antlers. Pipe a few dots of frosting on pretzels and sprinkle with nonpareils. Repeat with remaining doughnuts.
