My kids love making these cookies... simple... no bake... fun.. and yummy to eat!
1 Package of Nutter Butter Cookies
1 Bag of Pretzels (original or christmas tree shape)
1 Bag of Chocolate Melting Chips
1 Cookie Icing with built in tip
1 Green or Blue Icing Writer
1 Bag of Christmas Plain M&Ms (Red and Green)
Cookie Sheet lined with wax paper
Break the pretzels in half to resemble reindeer antlers. Melt the chocolate in a bowl and dip the pretzel ends in the chocolate and lay on the wax paper to dry. For faster drying, you can put the chocolate dipped pretzels in the freezer.
For the base of the reindeer face, lay out your Nutter Butter cookies.
Apply a small dot of cookie icing at the bottom of each Nutter Butter. The Cookie Icing will act as a glue for all the pieces to stick to.
Place a red M&M on the cookie icing dot for the nose. Apply to small dots of the green/blue icing writer in the middle of the cookie for the reindeer eyes.
Apply cookie icing to the top of the Nutter Butter to attach the pretzel antlers. Do not worry about the excess cookie icing that shows... that is the snow that falls on the reindeer's head.
Now your done! Fun project to make with your kiddos. Eat and enjoy!
