Are you ready for a fun and festive treat for the holiday season? These Reindeer Pretzel Marshmallow Pops are a simple treat your kids will love to create and then devour!
We are weeks away from Christmas and the kids and I have been busy in the kitchen! We love making our Melted Snowman Cookies, and we make Christmas Blossoms every year, but this year we decided to mix it up a bit with some fun Reindeer Treats. They are so simple, and SO DARLING!
Chocolate Pretzel Reindeer Treats
If you’re looking for an easy treat that happens to be deliciously festive, we’ve got the perfect idea – Reindeer Pretzel Pops! Simply dip the marshmallows in some chocolate, add some pretzel antlers and a candy nose and eyes and in literally 2 minutes you’ve got a fun treat the kids are going to LOVE!
How To Make Reindeer Marshmallow
Stick’em – Start by placing a lollipop stick into each marshmallow. You’ll want to place the stick about 3/4 of the way back on the long end.
Antlers – Evenly space out pairs of pretzels on a baking sheet lined with wax paper. These will serve as the reindeer antlers.
Melt The Chocolate – You’ll warm up your candy melts in the microwave according to the directions on the package.
Dip’em – Dip each of the marshmallows into the chocolate until they’re covered. Let any excess chocolate drop off.
Attach The Antlers & Nose – Lay each of the marshmallows onto a pair of pretzel antlers on the baking sheet. Next, add a red candy to the front of each reindeer marshmallow for the nose.
Add Eyes – Let the chocolate set for about a minute before attaching the candy eyes. This will keep the eyes from sliding out of place. Then let the chocolate harden completely before serving.
