A holiday just doesn’t seem like a holiday gathering without something dipped in chocolate, right? The next time you head out to celebrate with family or friends, make these holiday reindeer treats. They’re not only cute but they’re also delicious. The combination of chocolate, peanut butter and pretzels will have guests asking for more!
Holiday Reindeer Treats
- 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.
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.
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.
Dip each sandwich in the chocolate to completely coat, then lay flat on a baking sheet.
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.
Repeat until all 12 reindeer treats are made.
Freeze until chocolate is hardened.
Serve these cute reindeer treats with a glass of Santa’s favorite: Farm-fresh Hiland Dairy Milk!
