Hot Chocolate Reindeer Packages

I made these cute Reindeers to give to all of Baby Fox's friends at school. How cute are they? I found it on pinterest, but changed it up just a little bit. I loved how they turned out! I even made a quick video at the end, so if you don't want to see the pictures of how to do it, just scroll to the end.

This is the stuff you're going to need:

12 Inch Piping Bags
Brown Pipe Cleaners
1 Inch Red Pom Poms
16mm Wiggly Eyes
Chocolate (dutch processes preferred)
Powdered Sugar
Twisty Tie/string (not pictured)

...and some of these, I forgot to put them in the pictures...oops!

So let's get started. First let's start with the hot chocolate recipe. I tried out two actually, this one was WAY easier, so we're going to go with that. I also tried this one, and it took way more ingredients and wasn't that much better, sooo...let's go the easy route.

I bought the Wilton Piping bags, they didn't used to have the logo on it...grrr....but what can ya do? Turn it around and pretend it's not there, that's what. Add a couple of handfuls of marshmallows. Tie the top with a twisty tie/string.

Next we add the's the same process I used for this project.  Tie the pipe cleaner around the head twice

Then add the extra antlers on either side

Now comes the cute face

and you're done, how easy was that?!

Here's the video I promised you, it's not high quality, but it gets the job done...It's my first Youtube video...maybe it's the beginning to a new thing for me. Although when do people find the time to make videos? Here ya go.

Another variation I did, was I added some Spiced Pecans, or you can add Spiced Almonds, those are good too.

Crazy Eyes!
There ya go, it's super fast and simple to make these. Baby Fox is giving these to all of his friends today at school. I think it took me about 30 minutes to make all of these.
