It’s the most wonderful time of the year for baking! These festive holiday treats require very little time and just a few ingredients. They can be wrapped and given as gifts (but are tasty enough that you might just want to keep them for yourselves). Kids will love helping you decorate Santa’s flying friends!
›› 1/2 stick butter
›› 10 oz. mini marshmallows
›› 6 cups rice cereal
›› 2 oz. white chocolate baking melts
›› 16 pretzels (or chocolate covered pretzels)
›› M&Ms (for noses – brown and/or red)
›› Candy eyes
›› Grease 8-inch round cake pan
›› Melt butter in a pot over medium heat. Add marshmallows and stir to combine with butter, allowing to melt completely.
›› Remove the pot from heat and gently mix in cereal until it is all completely coated.
›› Transfer the mixture into the prepared cake pan and press into an even layer. Allow it to cool. While treats are cooling, melt white chocolate according to package instructions.
›› Lift the cooled treats out of the pan by running a spatula around the edges, then flipping the pan over on a platter. Cut the treat into eight even triangles (like you would a pizza).
›› Spread a small amount of the melted chocolate on the candy eyes, pretzel “antlers,” and M&M noses to decorate each reindeer. Allow to harden then serve!
