  • "edible glue" - chocolate frosting or melted chocolate
  • 1 thin strip from green Fruit Roll-Ups
  • 2 1/4' or 3/8" candy eyes*
  • 3 Tootsie Rolls Midgees or use larger Tootsie Rolls
  • 1 red M&M
  • *Candy eyes can be purchased at craft stores and cake/candy decorating stores as well as online. You can also make them yourself using royal icing. If you can't get them, use white candies, like Smarties and draw on a pupil using a food coloring marker or some frosting.
Supplies:
  • kitchen shears pizza wheel, and/or knife
  • optional: rolling pin
  • optional: small leave shaped cookie cutter
  • optional: round cookie cutter the size of the bottom side of a Reese's Cup Miniature 7/8 inch
Instructions
  1. Unwrap your Reese's Cup Miniatures, removing the foil and the paper cup.
  2. Set one Reese's Cup, wide end down on your table.
  3. Put a small dab of edible glue (frosting or chocolate) on top of that Reese's Cup.
  4. Set another Reese's Cup on it's side on top of the edible glue.
  5. Cut thin strips from the green Fruit Roll-Ups.
  6. Wrap one strip around the middle of the Reese's Cup stack.
  7. Use a small dab of edible glue to attach two eyes to the top of the Reese's Cup stack.
  8. Unwrap Tootsie Rolls. Flatten them. You can use your fingers to flatten them, but a rolling pin works well too. If needed, you can heat them up in the microwave for a few seconds, just to soften them.
  9. Cut two antlers using kitchen shears, a knife, or a leaf shaped cookie cutter.
  10. Trim if using a leaf cutter.
  11. Cut a circle out of a Tootsie Roll using kitchen shears or a round cutter, making it the same size as the narrow end of a Reese's Cup (7/8 inch.)
  12. Use edible glue (frosting or chocolate) to attach the round piece of Tootsie Roll to the narrow end of the Reese's Cup.
  13. Attach the antlers to the back of the Reese's Cup and add a red M&M nose on top of the Tootsie Roll round.
