Fun With the Girls | Reindeer Cookies

I saw the sweetest idea on Pinterest and thought it would be really fun to execute with the girls--and it WAS. I would like to link back to the original person who came up with the idea--but all of the pins are a dead-end. Anyhoo… I cannot take credit for the idea of these cookies. ;)
The original cookies had brown M&M's for the eyes and red M&M's for the nose. We wanted to make a lot of the cookies to share with the staff at the girls' school and with our neighborhood friends--so I subbed chocolate chips for the eyes and found a bag of "Christmas" M&M's (just red and green) for the noses. I let the girls eat the green ones and they were quite pleased with that, as you can imagine.
The rest was easy enough: Nutter Butter cookies, small pretzels, and white cookie frosting.
By the way, this is the best frosting. I found it at both our grocery store and Michael's.
We packaged a few up in little white bags and attached some note cards with gold and white kitchen twine.
Super sweet. Super easy. Great craft for the kids. AND delicious too!
