Ingredients
  

  • 6 cups rice krispie cereal
  • 6 cups mini marshmallows
  • 4 tablespoons butter salted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Chocolate covered mini pretzels
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate melts
  • Red and brown M&M’s
  • Candy eyes
  • Nonstick spray

Instructions
 

  • Prepare a 9x13 baking dish by spraying with nonstick spray
  • In a large pot melt the butter over low heat.
  • Stir in the vanilla extract.
  • Add in the marshmallows and stir continuously until they have melted.
  • Stir in the rice krispie cereal until coated with the marshmallow cream.
  • Spoon the coated rice krispies into the prepared baking dish and gently press down to spread the mixture.
  • Allow the rice krispie mixture to cool for 30 minutes.
  • Using a spatula gently loosen the edges of the treats. Turn the dish over onto a clean cutting board. Use a large knife to trim the edges so they are straight. Set aside the trimmed pieces.
  • Cut the block of treats down the middle the long way. This will split the treats into two pieces.
  • Cut each section on an angle to form triangle shaped pieces.
  • Place the white chocolate melts into a microwave safe container. Follow the directions for your brand of white chocolate melts. If they do not have directions, then microwave for 1 minute at 50% power or on the defrost setting. Stir well. If not melted place in microwave for 30 seconds and stir again.

Decorate the treats:

  • Place a small amount of melted chocolate on the back of one corner of a mini pretzel and stick it to a corner of the treat (opposite from the point of the triangle) to be an antler. Repeat for the other side.
  • Using a spoon or a toothpick, place a small amount of melted white chocolate on the back of each eye and position on the reindeer.
  • Using a spoon or a toothpick place a small amount of the melted white chocolate on the side of the M&M that has the printed logo. Press the red or brown M&M on the tip of the triangle to make the nose. Some will be Rudolph Reindeers (red nose) and other will be one of the other 8 Reindeer that pull Santa’s sleigh (brown nose).
  • Place the decorated treats on a baking sheet and put in the refrigerator or 5 to 10 minutes to harden the chocolate.
  • Serve and enjoy!
