Here are fun things you can do to change them up if you’d like.

  • Go with a fun reindeer recipe – use brown food coloring, add edible eyes and use pretzels for the horns. 
  • Don’t add anything food coloring just crush up some candy canes and mix together or sprinkle on top.  
  • You could use a Christmas tree cookie cutter and add mini M&M’s to make it look like a Christmas tree.  
  • Don’t add any food coloring and just mix in some mimi Christmas M&M’s to give them that fun and festive look. 
  • Go above and beyond and make some of the Grinches dog too. That might be a fun idea.
