Chocolate Reindeer Cookies

Christmas is upon us, and Santa is packing his sleigh! I am in love with Christmas baking and cookies for neighbors and Santa. I found these on Pinterest and just had to make them because they are adorable! These cookies are fail proof, and your kids can even help you decorate them. Merry Christmas!
