Christmas Reindeer Pretzel Ingredients

  • 50 mini pretzels (divided)
  • 25 chocolate candy melts + ¼ cup extra
  • 25 small round red M&M chocolate candies
  • 50 small candy eyes

How to make these cute Pretzel Reindeers:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Separate half of your pretzels and spread them out on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone liner.

Place one chocolate candy melt on top of each pretzel.

Gently break the remaining pretzels in half down the middle to form the antlers. (a few may break, so it’s best to have extra pretzels)

Place the baking sheet in the oven and bake for 2-3 minutes until the candy melts are soft.

Remove the baking pan and add the M&M candy nose and eyes to each reindeer.

Place the ¼ cup of candy melts in a small microwave-safe dish. Heat in 30-second increments in the microwave until melted. Stir until smooth.

Dip the bottom of each antler into the melted chocolate and add to the reindeer.

Allow the reindeer to cool completely to allow the chocolate to set before eating.

Enjoy!

Pro Tips

  • Have extra pretzels for the antlers. Some don’t break just right so you may need extras.
  • If you want them to cool faster, place the pan in the refrigerator when finished decorating.

How to Serve

You could wrap up these cute little guys as a holiday gift for friends and family, for a cookie exchange or to take to a classroom holiday party for your kids.
