Christmas and baking go hand-in-hand. Cookies are great, but these Reindeer Pretzel Bites are easy into make and oh so tasty!
You only need three ingredients and I’ll guarantee Santa will be happy on Christmas Eve.
I actually made these Reindeer Pretzel Bites for Mila’s preschool class. They’re a perfect snack! I only had three reindeer bites per student and filled the rest of the bag with pretzels. It’s great since the kids don’t get all the sugar if they had a bag full of these.
Anyways, here’s all you need for this recipe:
- Mini pretzels
- Red and brown m&m’s
These are a lot of fun to make and Mila got to help a lot!
First, preheat your oven to 250 F.
I would suggest taking the foil off of all the rollos before baking. When I was doing this, Mila picked out the red and brown m&m’s. This small activity that helped me was great for her motor skills and talking about all the colors.
Once the foil was off and colors were separated, we lined as many pretzels as we could on a lined baking sheet.
Then, put rollos on top of the pretzels and bake them for two minutes.
Once they’ve been in there for two minutes, press the m&m’s into them. This is a little tricky. I would suggest holding the pretzels while pushing them down.
Then, place the baking sheet in the freezer for 5 minutes to set them.
These were a lot of fun to make and were pretty tasty too. I stole a few of them after I knew her classmates were covered.
To make these super cute, I added a Christmas tag to the bag and sent them on their way.
I would definitely suggest making these and would be perfect for a holiday party. You could put them in a big bowl and they’d be a hit.
What do you leave out for Santa on Christmas Eve? Or what’s your favorite holiday dessert?
