Rudolph’s Red Nose Cookies

Directions

Place chips ans sweetened condensed milk (SCM) in a large microwave safe mixing bowl. Microwave chips & SCM one high in 15-30 second increments, stirring in between, until chips are melted and incorporated into the SCM.

Meanwhile,place crackers into a food processor and pulse until crackers are the consistency of sand. Pour pulverized crackers into the melted chocolate mixture and stir until combined.

Refrigerate this cracker/chocolate mixture for 20 minutes ((no longer)) in order to get them firm enough to hold their shape when scooped into "noses".

After 20 minutes, begin scooping. I have found that the simple process of scooping, firmly pressing the cookie mixture into the scoop and releasing is the perfect way to keep the "nose" in tact. Release the cookie into a cupcake liner and place into a lidded container. The cupcake liners keep the noses from pressing against each other and getting smooshed. ((This is important because if Rudolph has a smooshed nose, it won's light up enough to guide the sleigh properly.))

Continue forming noses until your arms ache and all of the cracker batter is gone.

Store in an air tight container in the fridge until ready to serve.

Makes about 3 1/2 dozen.
