Holiday Treats: Reindeer Poop

Reindeer Poop by Cappuccino and WineI am home for the holidays and that means CHRISTMAS BAKING!! Cooking/baking is a passion shared by both me and my mom, which means we break out all the stops every year. Here is one of our favorite, and traditional, holiday treats: Reindeer Poop.

I’m not certain where my mom found this recipe but it has become a tradition in our household. I have heard them called Reindeer Noses before as well, so if you would rather call them that – go for it! It is very simple, you will need: circle pretzels (normally come out in December), Hershey’s Hugs, plain M&Ms (we normally use the Christmas colored ones but the store didn’t have them), parchment paper, and a cookie sheet.

Steps:

Set the oven to 200 degrees. Place a piece of parchment paper on a cookie sheet. Lay the pretzels out flat on the wax paper.

Reindeer Poop by Cappuccino and WinePlace one Hug in the middle of each pretzel. Put the cookie sheet in the middle of the oven for about 3-4 minutes (you want the Hugs to be melted but NOT brown).

Reindeer Poop by Cappuccino and WinePull the cookie sheet out and quickly squish an M&M into the middle of each Hug. You want the Hug to spread out and fill the whole pretzel. Place the cookie sheet in the freezer or some place cold for about half an hour to harden.
