Rudolph Treats

Rudolph is a favorite at Christmas time. I love the magic of Santa and his sleigh pulled by reindeer, especially one with a shiny red nose to light the way. These treats are fun for little hands to make and eat. Only a few ingredients and some quick assembly, and you've got a Christmas plate of goodies that will bring smiles all around.


Rudolph Treats

Makes one dozen

12 miniature gluten free pretzels

12 snack size Almond Joy candy bars

12 miniature marshmallows

12 red M&M's miniature baking bits

Black decorating gel

Prepare ingredients by unwrapping candy bars, breaking pretzels in half, and cutting marshmallows in half. To assemble, insert an end from two pretzel halves into the top sides of each candy bar to form antlers. Gently press the cut side of two marshmallow halves onto each candy bar above the nut for eyes. Dot each with decorating gel. For the nose, attach an M&M to the top of each nut on the candy bars with decorating gel. Store in an airtight container.


Step-by-step tutorial:

Gather your ingredients. You will need snack size Almond Joys, miniature gluten free pretzels (we love Savor by Suzie), miniature marshmallows, M&M's minis, and black decorating gel.

Prepare your ingredients. Break the pretzels in half so they look like antlers. They don't have to be broken perfectly. Any shape will work as long as you have a piece to poke into the candy bar. Pick out the red M&M's. Get marshmallows ready with a pair of kitchen scissors. I don't cut them until I'm putting them on, so the sticky side stays sticky. Unwrap the candy bars.

To assemble, poke two pretzel halves into the top sides of each candy bar. See that top middle guy..... he has some different antlers because a pretzel didn't break perfectly, and I really like him! Cut a marshmallow in half and attach to the candy bar with the sticky inside down, just above the nut. To make them look like eyes, dot them with black decorating gel. Attach a red mini M&M to the top of each almond using decorating gel.

These Rudolph's are so cute, aren't they?! Who could resist one of these?

Little hands love to help make these too. You can make as many or as little as you like. Enjoy, and Merry Christmas!
