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

  • Taste incredible! 

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:

  1. Rice cakes
  2. White chocolate 
  3. Nutella
  4. Candy eyes
  5. Whole pretzels
  6. 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!

  1. These are adorable! And so cool they’re on rice cakes. I’d eat Nutella on almost anything, but this happens to be a fantastic, healthy choice. And so much fun for kiddos! Happy Holidays!
