  10. Bake for 18-21 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Allow to cool completely before frosting.


  1. Place the chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl and heat on power 7 for 30 seconds.  Stir and repeat until the chocolate is completely melted.  Transfer to a sealable plastic bag. Snip off a very small corner and pipe 24 antlers onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.  Place the tray in the fridge for 15 mins or until set.
  2. Meanwhile, prepare the frosting and either place it in a Ziploc bag, snip the corner and pipe onto the cupcake or use a butter knife to frost the cupcakes.   Arrange the antlers and edible eyes on the cupcakes. Use red  M&Ms to make the nose.
