Practical Parenting Ideas: Reindeer Pretzel Bites

Reindeer Pretzel Bites

The kids and I love making holiday goodies together, and chocolate pretzel bites are a tradition this time of year. They're super easy to make and fun to snack on. They also make a great addition to gifts for family and friends.

This year we thought rather than button pretzel bites we'd put a spin on it and make them into reindeer. We used pretzels, Hershey Hugs and Kisses, and Holiday Mint M & Ms, but you can't go wrong trying other flavor combos.

First layer pretzels on a baking sheet, then open the Hugs and Kisses. The kids can help these steps go more quickly!

Cut the Kisses and Hugs in half lengthwise then place one on top of each pretzel. Bake at 200 degrees for 4-5 minutes.

Top each with an M & M (We used mostly red for Rudolf). Let cool completely, and enjoy!
