Make Reindeer Cracker Snacks

We are completely in love with these little reindeer cracker snacks right now.  They are super easy to make, even for little hands, very yummy, and quite adorable!  Even better, you probably have the better part of what you need to make them right in your pantry!

What You Need:
  • Round crackers of some variety
  • Peanut buttter
  • Red chocolate candies (like M&Ms)
  • Mini pretzel twists
  • Mini chocolate chips

Altenatively, you could use a combo of red and brown chocolate candies for one Rudolph and a bunch of non red nosed reindeer, or larger chocolate chips for noses!

How to Make Reindeer Cracker Snacks:
  • Spread each cracker with some peanut butter.  I did this part so it was smoothed over the whole cracker instead of blobs.
  • Press two pretzels twists into the peanut butter to make antlers.
  • Add one red candy for the nose and push into place.
  • Carefully add in two mini chocolate chips for the eyes and press those in place as well.
  • Take pictures because they are adorable and serve!

Now don't you just feel the need to make a set of these too?

We've actually done it twice now and I'm thinking of doing a whole set of reindeer for a snack tray--one with a red nose, eight more with brown/black noses.  I think I even have a sleigh cookie cutter to add in!

Want to pin this post for future reference?  The graphic above has all the steps put together for you!
