Let’s face it, 99.9% of people only know Santa’s 9th Reindeer Rudolph (the one with the red nose!)so maybe I should have called this post top 10 Rudolph-themed snacks. But even if you are more of a fan of the other reindeer’s Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Dunder these festive treats will still gown down a storm at the Christmas party…
Top 10 Recipes for Reindeer Snacks
10 – Rice Cakes
There is one thing some of you might well notice that a few of these recipes use the pretzel twists broken in half as antlers. Who on earth first looked at a broken pretzel and thought it looked like
9 – Deer Nuts
Sadly the only way us people here in the UK will be able to make these is if we get some imported Nutter Butter cookies as our shops don’t sell them. (Not that I have noticed anyway) so get some of those, some red M&M’s and away you go!
8 – Cookies
There seem to be rather a few peanut butter style recipes in this list which is not great for those with nut allergies. So let’s get these cookies out the way and I will find some more nut-free recipes instead.
7 – Cremes
This is most probably the best-looking snack you are going to see in this list, but it does require you to have a Reindeer cookie cutter or a very good eye for craft.
6 – Cheese
Just grab some Laughing Cow cheese wedges, pretzels, olive and red pepper and away you go! Perfect for some after dinner nibbles at the dinner party.
5 – Cups
Not only do these look amazing but they are the simplest to make out of all these recipes here. No backing, no making, just some simple construction and decorating.
4 – Brownies
You might have already noticed that most these recipes to stick to a very similar style. Pretzels for antlers, and M&M’s for eyes and nose. But that doesn’t man I wouldn’t try each and every one of them!
3 – Sandwiches
These do require you to have a little bit of cutting and style skills but I am sure most of us should be able to make a few of them. I love that the crusts don’t goto waste and gets used as the antlers instead of pretzels for a change.
2 – Marshmallows
Nothing too complicated here, just some chocolate covered marshmallows with some pretzel antlers once again. These are more simple cake pops that anything else, so you might need the cake pop sticks to make them.
1 – Cupcakes
Now, these do look amazing but luckily for us come with a full step by step guide to making them. The festive reindeer cupcakes are made with yoghurt so they are not quite as un-healthy as they look.
