Quick and Easy No Bake Christmas Treats

1. Nutter Butter Reindeer Cookies

~Wilton Candy Eyes or two little marshmellows or 2 yellow M&Ms
~Pretzel Tiny Twists
~Red M&Ms for the noses
~Black licorice rope for the mouth or other black candy
~And of course the “Nutter Butter” Cookies

Use a knife to cut the rounded bottom off the tiny twist pretzel and white frosting as the “glue” to assemble everything. You can substitute the Wilton Candy Eyes for small marshamellows and put a dot of chocolate syrup in the middle to simulate the colored portion of the eye. You can also do that trick with 2 yellow M&Ms…just flip them over so they don’t see the M&M logo on it and use a dot of Hershey’s chocolate syrup to simulate the colored portion of the eye. The whites of your poor reindeer’s eyes will be yellow, but oh well! He should stop drinking so much!
