The internet is filled with cute treats and Rudolf the Peanut Butter Cup Reindeer happens to be one of the simplest but most effective. The best part is, it’s incredibly budget-friendly, so you don’t have to break the bank while entertaining this festive season. All you need are a few handy supplies that you can easily find at a local grocery or craft store.
To make this cute and delicious treat, you’ll need the following supplies:
-2 miniature Reese’s Cups per treat
-chocolate frosting or melted chocolate to use as glue
-green Fruit Roll-Ups
-2 (1/4′ or 3/8″) candy eyes per treat
-Tootsie Rolls Midgees
-pink knife or pizza wheel
-leaf-shaped cookie cutter
-round cookie cutter the size of the bottom side of a Reese’s Cup Miniature (7/8 inch)
With these simple supplies, you’ll be able to make a tray full of Rudolf the Peanut Butter Cup Reindeer treats that are sure to impress your guests and add that extra touch of holiday cheer to your celebration.
Starting with the base of the treat, use the circular cookie cutter to cut out circles from the green Fruit Roll-Ups. These will be the “grass” on which Rudolf will stand. Alternatively, you could use green frosting to create the same effect.
Next, it’s time to work on the reindeer’s head. Unwrap a Tootsie Roll Midgee, and roll it out into a flat, rectangular shape using a rolling pin. You can then use the leaf-shaped cookie cutter to cut out two ears.
Take one of the miniature Reese’s Cups or “the head” of the reindeer and use chocolate frosting or melted chocolate as glue to attach the ears. The ears should be placed on either side of the head, slightly overlapping at the base.
Now it’s time to add Rudolf’s signature red nose. Using your pink knife or pizza wheel, cut off a small section of the second miniature Reese’s Cup. Glue this piece onto the front of the first Reese’s Cup to create a nose. Finally, add a red M&M to the centre of the nose with chocolate frosting or melted chocolate.
Using the same chocolate “glue”, attach the eyes just above the nose. These can be the store-bought candy eyes or you can also use frosting to create the same effect.
Finally, attach the head onto the circular base or the “grass” using the chocolate glue. And voila! You’ve created your own unique Rudolf the Peanut Butter Cup Reindeer treat, perfect for your guests to enjoy this Christmas season.
Another great tip to add more variety to your Rudolf the Peanut Butter Cup Reindeer treats would be to use different coloured M&Ms on the nose, such as green or blue. This will be great for guests who may not be huge fans of the typical red M&Ms.
The best part about making these Rudolf the Peanut Butter Cup Reindeer treats is that you can make as many or as few as you want, depending on the size of your party. Since it’s a budget-friendly treat, it’s perfect for those on a budget who still want to entertain their guests in style.
The Rudolf the Peanut Butter Cup Reindeer is a great way to indulge in your sweet tooth while adding that extra touch of festive cheer to your celebrations. So, if you’re looking for a fun, easy, and inexpensive way to add some Christmas cheer to your holiday party, give Rudolf the Peanut Butter Cup Reindeer a try – your guests will thank you!
