Turn Kit-Kat Bars into Cute Christmas Treats in a snap. Just add two chocolate pretzel antlers, some candy eyes, and a shiny red nose and you have the sweetest Rudolph Candy Bars to give to friends and family this holiday season.
Earlier this month, when I shared my Chocolate Pretzel Reindeer food craft with you all, someone commented that it would be easier to decorate a break-a-part chocolate bar, like a Kit-Kat bar to look like Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer.
Now, I love my chocolate pretzels crafts, but she was right, a candy bar would be easier.
So, I got myself some chocolate bars and spent mere minutes decorating them.
They are equally as cute and would make the perfect project to do with your kids at Christmas or a great last-minute treat to make for your kid's holiday party.
You only need a few ingredients and a small amount of time to create an entire herd of these adorable chocolate reindeer.
Kit-Kat Candy Bars
light cocoa candy melts, melted (see my Chocolate-Making Tips page for instructions)
chocolate-dipped pretzel twists
large red candy (I used red Mega M&Ms but red Candy Melts wafers work great too)
jumbo candy eyes
wooden skewer or food-use-only paintbrush
Cut the chocolate-dipped pretzel twists in half (or just use whole pretzels) to create the reindeer's antlers.
Use melted light cocoa candy melts to attach two antlers, two candy eyes, and one candy nose to the backside of each Kit-Kat bar.
