1 slice and bake sugar cookies
½ cup Chocolate frosting
½ cup Vanilla frosting
32 Candy eyeballs
16 Red bites from the Red Vines California Collection
Black icing (optional)


Preheat your oven according to the cookie package directions.

Slice the cookie dough into 16 pieces and arrange them 2 inches apart on a large baking sheet.

Bake the cookies according to the package directions, between 11 and 16 minutes, until the cookies are just golden around the edges. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet.

Meanwhile, mix the chocolate frosting and vanilla frosting in a bowl. Add more vanilla frosting for a lighter brown or more chocolate frosting for a darker brown.

To make the reindeer antlers, slice the black licorice twists in half lengthwise, then slice each piece in half crosswise. To split the antlers, cut each licorice section in half lengthwise again, leaving the bottom half-inch in tact.

When the cookies have cooled, spread a spoonful of frosting on top of each one. Press two antlers onto the top of each cookie, followed by two candy eyeballs and a red licorice bite for the nose. If you’d like, use black icing to draw mouths beneath the noses.
