Pretzel Reindeer

This tasty winter munchie also makes a great seasonal decoration.

What You Need

  • round cereal pieces (we used Trix™)
  • any type of cheese spread (this will be your “glue”)
  • coconut flakes
  • 1 miniature marshmallow
  • 5 braided pretzel sticks (or thick bread sticks, broken in half)
  • 2 mini-pretzel twists
  • 1 pretzel nugget

What You Do

  1. Make Reindeer’s Legs and Torso
    To make the reindeer’s legs and torso, lay the five braided pretzel sticks on the plate, as shown. Use a dab of cheese spread to “glue” each leg to the reindeer’s torso.
  2. Add Head, Antlers, and Tail
    • “Glue” the pretzel nugget in place for a head.
    • “Glue” on two cereal pieces for eyes and one piece for a nose.
    • “Glue” a pretzel twist onto each side of the head for antlers.
    • “Glue” on a miniature marshmallow in place for a tail.
  3. Add “Snow”
    Dust the plate with coconut flakes for snow.Pretzel reindeer
