Holiday Recipe: Candy Reindeer

 I am always looking for new recipes to share for the holidays! This recipe is great for children of all ages. More recipes to follow.

Prep time: 30 minutes

8 ounces white candy coating, coarsely chopped
12 candy canes (each at least 6 inches)
12 to 20 pretzels
12 red-hot candies
24 Mini Chocolate Chips


In a microwave, melt candy coating;
stir until smooth. Keep warm. Holding the curved end of a candy cane, use a
spoon to drizzle coating over the straight part of cane. Gently shake off
excess. Place on waxed paper to dry. 
Repeat with remaining candy canes. Break
pretzels into pieces to resemble antlers; set aside 24 pieces.
For each reindeer nose, dab a small amount of melted candy coating onto a red-hot. Press
onto the end of the curved portion of the candy cane and hold for about 10
For the eyes, dab a small amount of coating on two chocolate chips and
attach to candy cane above nose.
Select two similar pretzel pieces; dab a small amount of coating onto the candy cane where antlers will be attached.
Press pretzel pieces into the coating and hold for about 30 seconds. Repeat for
remaining reindeer. Place in mugs or drinking glasses; let dry for about 1 hour.

*This recipe is great with hot cocoa.

Yields 12 Servings
