Reindeer Nose Treats Recipe

I am helping out with Sarah's party today and have to bring in a sweet treat.  Another mom is in charge of the major sweet for the party (I am assuming cupcakes or cookies) so I thought I would make these.

I love the combination of sweet and salty and I really love that they are so simple that even I can do it without messing them up!

Reindeer Nose Treats


  • 1 bag small, waffle-shaped pretzels

  • 1 bag Hershey's Kisses or Hugs

  • 1 bag red and green M&M candies

  • Directions:
    Preheat your oven to 170 degrees.
    Put a piece of wax paper on a cookie sheet.
    Place pretzels on the wax paper.
    Unwrap Hershey's Kisses.
    Place one Hershey's Kiss on top of each pretzel.
    Bake for 4-6 minutes depending on your oven.  (It took 6 minutes in mine.)
    Remove from oven and press one M&M into the top of the Hershey's Kiss.
    Allow to cool completely.  (I stuck mine in the fridge to speed this step up.)

    (Please note - if you can find the round pretzels, use those.  The finished product will look more like a reindeer's nose.  However, either shape will taste just as good!)

    Ready for the oven!

     Topped with M&Ms!
    Aren't they pretty?

    I love these - cute, good and so easy! I've used the round ones, but find they fall apart easier than the waffle pretzels.

    Those are one of my favorites! It's dangerous for my waistline for me to have them around!
