Bake a batch of these frosted Betty Crocker® chocolate chip mix Rudolphs for dessert. Even Santa won’t be able to resist these cute reindeer cookies on Christmas Eve.


  • 1 pouch Betty Crocker™ chocolate chip cookie mix
  • 1 tablespoon Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 1 egg
  • 2 pouches (7 oz each) Betty Crocker™ Decorating Cookie Icing chocolate icing
  • 32 candy eyes
  • 16 small round chocolate-covered creamy mints
  • 1 pouch (7 oz) Betty Crocker™ Decorating Cookie Icing white icing


  1. In large bowl, beat cookie mix, flour, butter and egg with electric mixer on low speed just until blended. Shape into ball. Flatten dough to 1/2-inch thickness; wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate 3 hours or until very firm.
  2. Heat oven to 350°F. Unwrap dough; on well-floured surface, roll dough to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut with floured 3 1/2-inch gingerbread boy cookie cutter. On ungreased cookie sheets, place cutouts 2 inches apart. Refrigerate on cookie sheets 10 minutes. Bake 9 to 10 minutes or until edges are lightly golden brown. Remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
  3. Turn each cookie upside down to look like reindeer face. Outline cookie with chocolate icing; fill in and spread icing with toothpick. Attach candy eyes and mint for nose. Decorate with white icing to look like antlers. Let stand until set.
