My Reindeer Oreos are too cute not to share with everyone. They are really fun to make with my kids and my grandchildren both. We get together a lot and bake goodies as well. Making these were no different. The kids got right up and offered help. It was a really fun project.
Although my kids are special to me and I enjoy making goodies with them, seeing my granddaughters eyes light up helping make them was something like no other. When the finished product was done, she grinned her ear to ear. She is really special. She loves My Reindeer Oreos. She takes the ears off first, then the nose and then eyes. She is too cute.
I am happy with the way these turned out. The outcome is amazing! How could you think not?
