Ingredients
  • 1 Hershey's Milk Chocolate Candy Bar per reindeer
  • 2 squares of caramel per reindeer
  • 2 candy eyes per reindeer*
  • 1 red Peanut M&M per reindeer
  • kitchen shears scissors
  • optional a leaf shaped cookie cutter (or use a large reindeer cookie cutter)
  • *I used 1/2 inch royal icing eyes that I purchased from a cake/candy supply store on-line, but you can also draw a black pupil using a food coloring marker on any small white candies like M&M's, Smarties, or white chocolate chips.
Instructions
  1. Unwrap your candy bars and caramels.
  2. Flatten the caramels, by pressing on them with your fingers. If necessary, heat them in the microwave for a few seconds to soften them.
  3. Use kitchen shears to cut an oval that is about 2/3rds of the width of your candy bars.
  4. Press the oval near the bottom edge of your candy bar.
  5. Press one red Peanut M&M into the caramel oval.
  6. Press one tiny piece of caramel onto the back of each candy eye then press the eyes onto the candy bars just above the caramel oval.
  7. Use a leave cookie cutter or kitchen shears to cut antlers. I cut out a leaf then cut it in half and it worked perfectly.
  8. Press the caramel antlers onto the top half of the candy bar.
  9. Serve them on a platter at your party, or wrap them in clear cellophane bags to give as Christmas treats.
