  7. Roll into 1/2-3/4" balls and place on cookie sheet several inches apart.
  8. Sprinkle with sugar and gently make an indentation slightly off the center of each cookie.
  9. Bake 12-14 minutes.
  10. Place an M&M in the indentation of each cookie.
  11. Insert 2 mini chocolate chips (pointy side down) above the M&M to be the eyes.
  12. Insert 2 pretzel pieces to be the antlers.
