Ingredients

Chocolate Cake:
  • 1 box devil’s food cake mix
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 C. oil
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 C. milk or buttermilk
  • 1/2 C. sour cream
    Chocolate Frosting:
  • 1 C. butter
  • 1/3 C. unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2-3 C. powdered sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. milk
  • Pretzles, for antlers
  • Nilla Wafers, for muzzles
  • Brown M&M’s for noses (some red for Rudolph)
  • White Mint M&M’s for eyes

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line pans with cupcake liners.
  2. Sift cake mix into a small bowl and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, combine eggs, oil, vanilla extract, milk and sour cream until smooth.
  4. Stir in cake mix.
  5. Fill cupcake liners 3/4 full and bake for 16-20 minutes or until an inserted knife comes out clean.
  6. Let cool.
  7. Chocolate frosting: Beat butter. Add cocoa powder, 2 C. powdered sugar and milk. Slowly add more powdered sugar until you reach your desired consistency.
  8. Prep reindeer “faces” by using frosting to stick brown M&M’s on Nilla Wafers (some red for Rudolphs if you want). Melt down a few chocolate chips, put in a small plastic bag, snip off the tip to make a mini piping bag and “dot” little eyeballs on the white M&M’s to make eyes.
  9. Frost cupcakes.
  10. (See photos below) Place Nilla wafers with M&M’s on cupcakes, then place pretzels above. Use a little frosting to stick on 2 eyes and there you go!
