I was going to post this on Monday, but I couldn't wait. They're too much fun!
These turned out absolutely adorable. We made them for a cub scout activity along with the Candy Corn Turkey Treats. No two reindeer or turkeys turned out the same. Each had their own little personality. I think the reindeer would be fun to take to neighbors (with kids) for Christmas treats or just make for fun as a family night activity.
Nutter Butter cookies (head)
small pretzels (antlers)
red m&m's (nose)
mini chocolate chips (eyes)
Carefully eat the bottom part of the pretzel. Or if you'd rather use the whole pretzel, go ahead and leave it whole. If you're really careful, you can use the little round piece as a mouth under the red nose! Spread just enough frosting on top of Nutter Butter to hold the pretzel antlers in place. Use a small amount of frosting to place the chocolate chip eyes and the m&m nose in place.
These were super simple to make. Even my 6 year old and 4 year old could do it. The boys in my scout group got pretty creative with theirs, biting the pretzels into funny pieces for the antlers and putting the spare pretzel parts in crazy places. No matter the age, they all enjoyed making them as well as eating them!
