Holiday Reindeer Treats Recipe


Holiday Reindeer Treats Ingredients

  • 36 mini-sized pretzels
  • 1 bag melting chocolate
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 3 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • Candy eyes
  • Cinnamon candies
  • Cake-pop sticks


Combine peanut butter and powdered sugar. Stir until thick.

Holiday Reindeer Treats Step 1

Cover a pretzel with the peanut butter mixture, then place on a baking sheet lined with waxed paper.

Press a cake-pop stick onto the covered pretzel.

Cover another pretzel with the peanut butter mixture and place it on top of the first covered pretzel with the stick to create a sandwich.

Repeat until a total of 12 sandwiches have been made.

Holiday Reindeer Treats Step 2

Freeze the sandwiches for approximately 30 minutes, or until the peanut butter mixture is set.

Break 12 pretzels into equal halves to create antlers.

In a medium bowl, melt chocolate according to the directions on the package.

Holiday Reindeer Treats Step 3

Dip each sandwich in the chocolate to completely coat, then lay flat on a baking sheet.

Holiday Reindeer Treats Step 4

Press pretzel pieces onto the top of each chocolate-covered sandwich to create the antlers. Add the eyeballs and a cinnamon candy to create a nose while the chocolate is still warm.
