Milk Button Reindeers:  Cupcakes made with milk chocolate buttons. Formed like little Reindeer for Christmas.

Here’s the Recipe

1 Eggs
2oz Butter
2oz Golden Caster Sugar
2oz Self Raising Flour, sifted
2 Tablespoons Cocoa Powder

10oz Icing Sugar
4oz Butter, at room temperature
2oz Cocoa Powder

Antlers: Pretzels-broken in half
Ears: Chocolate covered Raisins
Eyes: White Chocolate Chips & a Tube of Dark Chocolate Icing
Nose: Red Peanut M&M’s
Mouth/Chin: Milk Chocolate Buttons

Preheat the oven to 180C/gas 4. Place all the cupcake ingredients, in a bowl and mix together with an electric beater until smooth and fluffy.
Spoon the mixture into mini cake cases set in a mini muffin tin. Bake for 10 minutes or so, until risen and firm to the touch.

To make the frosting sift the icing sugar and cocoa powder in a bowl and beat together with the butter with an electric beater until the mixture comes together and is light and fluffy. Once the cakes have cooled, spoon the frosting over the top of each one and decorate with confectionery.
