Who doesn’t love Milano cookies? Please don’t tell me if you don’t, just lie to me, because I am now craving a bag of them as I write up this recipe for you! These cookies are amazing on their own and make great decadent snacks all on their own.

All of us are busy. We don’t always have the time we want to make freshly baked cookies for every Christmas gathering… but if you are like me, we love to still bring some dish that is delicious to parties. Being adorable is just a bonus!

Grab a bag of these delicious cookies and start work on this adorable reindeer cookie design. You will end up with magical reindeer cookies that are perfect for kids parties, school snacks, really any holiday party!

Ingredients for Reindeer Christmas Cookies

reindeer Christmas cookies - ingredients

15 Milano Cookies (note if you can’t find the candy cane cookies, the traditional dark chocolate cookies work just fine.)
1/4 cup Dark Chocolate Melting Chips
15 Red Candy Decorations (Red Hots)
30 Candy Eyes

How to Make the Reindeer Christmas Cookies

Place the chocolate chips in a microwave-safe container and then microwave for 45 seconds (do this step in 10-second increments, as needed, until the chocolate chips are melted).

Once melted scoop all the melted chocolate into the corner of a Ziploc bag. Be careful, it will be hot!

Cut a tiny piece off of the corner to make your own icing bag to pipe the melted chocolate on to the cookies.

The melted chocolate becomes the “glue” to affix eyes and nose to the Milano cookie.

Pipe antlers above eyes on each cookie. These don’t have to match perfectly, but try to make them at least be the same length and have the same number of points.

Allow time for setting before serving.
