We’ve made these Reindeer Pretzels for years because they are quick and easy. They make a cute addition to any cookie tray alongside traditional cookies.

They are so easy that kids can be left to the task by themselves. Younger children may just need an adult to melt the chocolate but everything else is pretty straight forward.

Tips For the Easiest Reindeer Pretzels

Gather all of your ingredients and set them out before you begin

Use any kind of candies, chocolate, or pretzel shapes you have on hand.

Pour your melted chocolate into a glass or silicone dipping container rather than a shallow bowl.
