Reindeer Noses

Speaking of reindeer noses, these treats are actually just fudge balls, dipped in coconut and dropped with a candied cherry. They’re a little more involved to make than some other recipes, so you might want to handle most of the cooking. However, your kids can help place the noses and create eye-catching fun!
