Prepare cake mix for cupcakes, using cupcake liners   Bake for 21 to 24 minutes.   Let cool and ice with chocolate icing and decorate with M & M White eyes and put black gel in center of each  m&m.

Place a gumdrop for nose and form ears by using a tootsie roll, cut in thirds for each set of ears and attach in icing.  Next carefully break pretzel to form antlers.  You can use mini vanilla wafers for snout or just place gum drop for red nose.
