Reindeer Cookies

The reindeer were tired.  They have finished their long trip, eaten some extra grain and they are now getting some well deserved rest.

Santa's reindeer are awesome.  They fly all night, pulling that big sleigh full of toys and a fat man through the skies and never complain.  We honor them by making cookies that look like them, and then eating the peanut butter deliciousness.

Boy, they were good.

Reindeer Cookies

Nutterbutter cookies
Chocolate candy coating
Red M&Ms
Small pretzel twists
Candy eyes or white M&M's and edible black marker/frosting

Melt chocolate candy coating according to package directions.  Pull cookies slightly apart.  Dip in chocolate, place broken pretzels between cookies and secure with chocolate (I dipped the edge of the pretzel in the chocolate, pushed them between the cookies and let the chocolate from the pretzel and the cookie hold them in place.  Place a red M&M for the nose and the candy eyes in place before the chocolate hardens.  Let sit about 30 minutes to harden.  Enjoy
