Christmas Muffin Tin Meal

This post may contain affiliate links. Privacy policy.

We kicked off Christmas week this morning with a special muffin tin breakfast! 
There was cheesy Christmas stars (cheese cut out with a star cookie cutter), snow (shredded coconut & a few “snow balls”-cream cheese with coconut), yogurt with snowflake sprinkles, an apple Christmas tree with sprinkle ornaments, and the feature of this breakfast was of course, Rudolph the Red-Nose Waffle Reindeer!  
To make Rudolph, I used about 1 and 1/2 waffles.  The cuttings from the face were used for ears and I cut his antlers from the second waffle.  Eyes are cream cheese dots with chocolate chips and his nose is the end cut off of a Mike & Ike candy. Syrup for dipping was in the muffin cup underneath.
For the tree, I just cut a thick slice off an apple and carved the tree shape (the apple wasn’t big enough to use my tree cookie cutter).  Then, just put on some fun Christmas sprinkles.
Rudolph has been of great interest to Big Brother this year, so his muffin tin was a HUGE hit! 🙂
I so love making these special meals for him!  This one only took about 5 extra minutes and was so worth that extra time!

  1. LOVE! I think this might be my favourite this week… That is the cutest reindeer ever – and I love how you decorated the apple tree – where on earth did you get those sprinkles?????

  2. Thanks for all the sweet comments! 🙂
    @ Ludicrous Mama–believe me, these were no fancy homemade waffles–we're talking the pop in the toaster oven, frozen variety!

    @ Sugary Flower–thanks! 😉 Those sprinkles come from a local bakery supply store. Didn't know it even existed until a couple of weeks ago, but it SO cool! Local bakery shops get some supplies from them. And, it's cheaper than the grocery & craft stores too!

  3. Your muffin meal is simply adorable! I love Rudolph and the tree! I love the look on your son's face too… like he is thinking "oh my goodness this is so cool!" And it is! Merry Christmas!
