They’re quick and easy to make, with just four ingredients, and so simple the kids can help too. You’ll start with a bag of Rolo candies, some small pretzels, red candy noses, and candy eyes. My girls love any excuse to bake with candy eyes, so they were pretty thrilled to make these reindeer!

The concept is pretty simple, but the end result is so cute! For sure, the trickiest part is cutting the pretzels in half for the antlers. I found it worked best to just be gentle and use a sharp knife. We still had a few pretzel casualties, but my four year old was happy to take care of those for me. :)

After a few minutes in the oven, we were ready to assemble our reindeer. I did all of the assembling since the pan was still very warm from the oven. I found that it worked best to add the eyes, then the nose, then the antlers. It’s important to work fast so the chocolate doesn’t have time to firm up before you’ve finished decorating all your cute reindeer.

Rolo Pretzel Reindeer

Yield: 20 Reindeer

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 3 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 40 small pretzels, divided
  • 20 ROLO'S
  • 40 candy eyes
  • 20 small round red candies (any variety)

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 250. Place 20 of the pretzels on a baking sheet lined with parchment or foil and top each pretzel with a Rolo candy.

Carefully cut the remaining pretzels in half to form antlers.

Place the baking sheet with the pretzels and Rolos in the oven and bake 3 minutes, or until the candies are softened.

Remove the baking sheet from the oven and add eyes, nose, and antlers to each reindeer. Work quickly before the chocolate cools and hardens.

Allow the reindeer to cool completely before serving.

    These are darling! Would you share what kind of “red” candy you used for the nose and for the candy eyes is there a certain size for them? I know they come in different sizes! Thank you so much! Elizabeth

      For ease, I would pick out some red candy coated chocolates from a standard bag of mixed-colored candies. I’ve also bought the packs of color coated candies and eyes from craft stores. :)

    So cute! What is your trick to cutting the pretzels in half without them breaking!  Thanks!

      I actually just break them and hope for the best! Luckily, we don’t mind eating broken pieces. :)
