Red Vines Reindeer Cookie Recipe

With Red Vines® Holiday Candy

Reindeer Cookie Recipe made from Red Vines Original Red and Black Licorice

What You'll Need:

  • 1 package slice and bake sugar cookies
  • ½ cup chocolate frosting
  • ½ cup vanilla frosting
  • 32 candy eyeballs

Slice and Bake Cookie Dough

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.

Make Chocolate Frosting and Reindeer Antlers

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.

Frost and Decorate Cookies

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 piece of chopped red licorice for the nose. If you’d like, use black icing to draw mouths beneath the noses.
