Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer

Do you know about Rudolph? He who had a red nose, was coated with milk chocolate and chocolate pretzels and eyes, with the taste of almond liqueur? You will know him now. A fun project for the Christmas holidays.

RUDOLPH THE RED-NOSED REINDEER
ABOUT 20 REINDEER

BUTTER CREAM:
30 G BUTTER
60 G ICING SUGAR
1 TBSP COCOA POWDER

Melt the butter and stir together with icing sugar and cocoa powder to a smooth mixture. Set the cream aside while the rest is made.

CAKE MIXTURE:
350 G LEFTOVER SPONGE CAKE
1½-2 TBSP RASPBERRY JAM, SEEDS STRAINED
1-2 TBSP AMARETTO LIQUEUR

Blend the left over cake and mix with buttercream, flavor with jam and liqueur.

Place 1 tbsp. large dollops of the mixture on a sheet of baking paper and refrigerate until firm.

Roll the cold mixture into round balls.

DECORATION:
200 G MILK CHOCOLATE
MILK CHOCOLATE PRETZLES
SMALL DARK CHOCOLATE BUTTONS
RED CHOCOLATE BUTTONS
A LITTLE WHITE CHOCOLATE

Cut out the pretzles to form the antlers on Rudolf. When I cut them out, the pretzels themselves cracked where it fit to make antlers, but around where the pretzel overlaps.

Melt the milk chocolate in a bowl and cover the balls completely, gently knocking off excess chocolate against the edge of the bowl.

Place the balls on a sheet of baking paper, insert the antlers into the balls, place the red nose and give Rudolph a pair of dark eyes.

Melt the white chocolate and make small dots in Rudolph’s eyes.

Refrigerate until serving time.
