Yummy and super easy Reindeer Cookies are fun for everyone to make and to eat!!
I’m all about simple and yummy recipes that I can make with my kids, or bake during the holidays. These darling Reindeer Cookies couldn’t be any easier to whip up, and my kids absolutely love helping to put on the eyes, mouth, and antlers. They’re perfect for eating at home, serving at holiday parties, class parties, or packaging up for neighbor gifts. Everyone loves Rudolph, especially in cookie form!
I’ll often make my own favorite peanut butter cookie recipe, but I also use the peanut butter cookie mix if I’m in a hurry. They are super easy to make, and a huge, huge hit with kids.
All you need is red peanut M&Ms, chocolate chips, and the round pretzels broken into pieces.
Either make and bake your own favorite peanut butter cookies, or mix the peanut butter cookies according to package directions. When you place them on the cookie sheet, flatten them out just a little bit. While they’re baking, put the red M&Ms and chocolate chips in bowls, and break the pretzel pieces so they’re ready to go. As soon as they come out of the oven, add the red M&M for the nose, chocolate chips for the eyes, and broken pretzel pieces for the antlers. (Those are perfect jobs for kiddos!)
SO SO adorable!!
If there are peanut allergy concerns, you could totally use the sugar cookie mix instead, and plain M&Ms instead of the peanut M&Ms. Just as yummy, just as cute!
These reindeer cookies spread cheer everywhere they go! They’re perfect for your own family traditions, plus sharing them with others.
