  1. I love this! When I was very young, my parents didn’t have much money at all, the only thing I wanted was a Rudolph the red nose reindeer. At that time Easy bake ovens were the rage. My mother found me a Rudolph the red nose reindeer for 25 Cents at a drug store (she told me later) made my Christmas. Still love Rudolph the red nose Reindeer and MOM πŸ™‚

  2. This is absolutely darling! I wish I had time this Christmas to make these, but with two under two, I doubt I’ll be baking. So sad, but at least I’ll have another recipe in my bookmarks for 2014, or ’15, or, let’s be reasonable here, 2020! Haha! Thanks for this awesome idea.

    1. At least there’s a plan, Amanda! 2020 it is. πŸ˜‰ I totally understand, as my kids are just now getting to the age I can start baking all the “fun” stuff again.
