Reindeer Noses

My family is big on holiday baking and decorating. This is traditional in our home when the Christmas season arrives; we start baking and making treats to give to friends, neighbors and family.

Several things that we make are sugar cookies, rum balls, fudge, peanut butter balls… and even these Reindeer Noses. How darling would these be in a treat basket at a Christmas party or holiday dinner?
