Chocolate-Dipped Reindeer Pretzels

My kids like to ask me about what I did when I was a kid. I love when I can share with them the things of my childhood. So when I told them about chocolate-covered pretzel reindeer, they were so excited to make some for themselves.

Step-by-step tutorial

  • Step 1

    Gather your ingredients. If you want a healthier option, you can use a yogurt coating and raisins or nuts for decoration. Your kids are sure to love them either way.

  • Step 2

    First, break up the twists to create the antlers. The kids liked snapping the pretzels apart.

  • Step 3

    Melt the chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl. Cook for 30 seconds at a time until melted (but not too hot). Then dip the twists into the chocolate. The kids loved this part too since they got to be a little messy.

  • Step 4

    Place the coated pieces on the parchment paper to dry. Then move two next to each other to create a pair of antlers.

  • Step 5

    Then we dipped the top of the pretzel rods in the chocolate and placed them on top of a set of antlers. We added cut-up marshmallows for eyes and cinnamon candy for a nose. Very Rudolph-like, isn't he?

    After the chocolate dries, they are ready to be enjoyed--and the kids certainly did just that!
