These Reindeer Rice Cakes are a fun treat to make during Christmas time!
Hello friends! The countdown to Christmas is on! 15 days until Santa comes!
I have enjoyed making different treats this holiday season, especially the kid friendly kinds. I don’t have any kiddos of my own yet, which most of you know, but I know YOU probably have a kiddo or 2 of your own.
My fiancé recently picked up rice cakes from Costco which means we have A LOT of rice cakes on hand. I love having rice cakes for a snack because they are a great vehicle for peanut butter! (As if I needed another reason to eat peanut butter).
But they are also great to make treats out of too!
You’ll love this recipe because they are:
- Easy to make
Require a few simple ingredients
Can be prepped ahead of time
Kid-friendly (and adult friendly too of course)
Are lower in calories compared to other desserts
Growing up my mom was always into crafts.
I always admired how creative she was in the kitchen, with my school projects, Halloween costumes, Christmas ornaments, etc.
As I am getting older, I am realizing I have the creativity bug in me too! No real surprises there, but I love noticing more and more how much I resemble my momma.
What you will need for Reindeer Rice Cakes:
- Rice cakes
- White chocolate
- Candy eyes
- Whole pretzels
- Something for the nose (fresh cranberry or red MnM works well)
What type of rice cakes should I use?
Plain or lightly salted works best.
What if I don’t have Nutella?
You can melt milk or dark chocolate and use that in place of Nutella.
What did you use to make the nose?
I used a fresh cranberry. You can use a dried cranberry or a red skittle or MnM too! Anything circular & red works!
Here are some other festive recipes to enjoy this holiday season:
I hope you have fun making this recipe! Enjoy!
