1 pkt Betty Crocker Mud cake mix
3 eggs
1/4 cup vegetable oil
3/4 cup water
1 tub of Betty Crocker chocolate icing
1pkt Jaffas Smarties or M&M’s candy coated choc chips or cachous
1 pkt pretzels
Preheat oven to 200°C. Place silver foil patty pans in a 12 cup tray.

Prepare cake mix as directed and place 1/3rd cup measures in each patty pan and bake for 20 minutes.Leave to cool on a wire rack.

When cooled take the icing and give each cupcake a generous coating.

Place Jaffas on each one for the nose and smarties etc for the eyes.

Cut the pretzels to make the antler shapes and push into cupcake.

These little guys are super cute and my kids loved them.

Cutting the pretzels is tricky and I discovered a quick downstroke with the knife makes a clean cut and stops the rest of the pretzels breaking.
