Even though the Christmas season is always busy, I always look forward to my kitchen time with Sam. We love to create fun treats together and my mama heart cherishes the special memories we’re creating.

Since we work on projects together, I am all about easy baking ideas. 

How to Make Reindeer Cupcakes

During a baking extravaganza, this weekend, Sam and I created darling reindeer cupcakes. As always, Sam enjoyed helping me measure and mix.

We both enjoyed taste testing afterwards. I will definitely be regularly re-creating these reindeer cupcakes as they are almost too cute to eat — almost!

Reindeer Cupcakes

Super Moist Chocolate Cupcakes

  • 1 package of chocolate cake mix
  • 1 package of chocolate pudding
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
  • Cupcake liners {I love the blue ones I chose with little Santa and reindeer on them. I also doubled the cupcake liners — I baked in one and then placed the baked cupcakes with liners into a fresh liner after frosting and decorating.}

Combine all ingredients and bake according to cake instructions. 

Peanut Butter Frosting {from All Recipes}

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 3 tablespoons milk, or as needed
  • 2 cups confectioners’ sugar

Place the butter and peanut butter into a medium bowl, and beat with an electric mixer. Gradually mix in the sugar, and when it starts to get thick, incorporate milk one tablespoon at a time until all of the sugar is mixed in and the frosting is thick and spreadable. Beat for at least 3 minutes for it to get good and fluffy.

  • Red Hot candy {for nose}
  • Googly eyes
  • Chocolate covered pretzels

Sam and I had such a great time creating these fun holiday recipes. I look forward to our next project together!
