I can’t believe Christmas is only a few weeks away! I love making fun treats for my kids and their friends and these reindeer are so fun to make! These Reindeer Treats can be the feature item to your holiday gathering, but they are also simple enough to make for a classroom party. All you need to do is run to the store, grab a few ingredients and they can be put together in a snap. Kids will love them even though they are almost too cute to eat.
- Little Debbie Swiss Rolls
- Reese’s Mini Peanut Butter Cups
- Mini Candy Canes
- Red M&M Candies
- Candy Eyeballs
- Pretzel Sticks
- Mini Marshmallows
- Chocolate chips for melting
Melt a couple handfuls of chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl to prepare for assembly.
Lay out a sheet of parchment paper to work on your reindeer.
Turn a Swiss Roll upside down and dip the end of pretzel sticks in melted chocolate and insert into Swiss roll slightly to make the legs. Make sure all four pretzels are equal in length after they are inserted in the Swiss Roll to ensure that the reindeer will stand up.
Dip the end of two mini candy canes in melted chocolate – place the candy canes, with the stick part touching, together to form antlers. Immediately place a peanut butter cup, bottom side, on the melted candy. Lay on the parchment paper to harden. You can set it in the fridge to harden faster if needed.
Use melted chocolate to gently attach candy eyeballs and the M&M nose.
Use melted chocolate to attach the head and tail. You will need to hold them until they are set.
Share and enjoy!
