How cute are these! They made me LOL too. Made me feel like a kid again. Whimsical and adorable. Just what was needed. Thanks for posting! : )
LOL, what fun to make and an awesome idea! I made some dipped in semisweet chocolate chips and some with plain faces. To add depth, I created a nose/muzzle using a peanut butter candy melt. I also used candy eyes, and added "snow" to some of the antlers with melted white chocolate chips. Rather than pretzel sticks, I used pretzel twists so the antlers would have branches and curves.
This is a very cute idea! I agree with Chef #738454 that this is a 2 person job,though. My daughter and I used store bought chocolate dipped pretzels for the antlers and I mixed white and regular chocolate to dip the cookies in. I made these to accompany Santa Cookies. My niece and nephew will adore them. Thanks!!
I dipped my in chocolate candy coating. That makes it a 2 person job, though, because it is VERY messy. I dipped the top, dipped the bottom and then did a quick scrape off the back of the cookie (rubber spatula) and a quick scrape around the edges and laid it out on wax paper. My daughter quickly laid on the eyes, nose and pretzel antlers!
Awesome, easy, tasty cookies-I made these last night for my kids' daycare party and they were so crafty and easy to do. I opened the Nutter Butters carefully (I didn't break any so it's not hard to do)dipped the tips of the pretzels in white icing for adhesive (I used tubed icing already prepared), put the cookie back together and used brown mini M&M's for eyes and Red Hots for noses, securing them with small dab of icing. They turned out really cute! Thanks for a great idea!
These are fun! I've mix part white part chocolate almond bark together to make brown and dunked the whole cookie in; the antlers stick a little better.
Great idea! I had fun doing this with the grandkids and the kids over the holidays! Thanks for a fun cooking activity that the little ones can fully participate in!
