Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer Treats

This pretzel treat is one that I've been making with my kids since they were very young.  The great thing about this no bake treat is that even toddlers can add Rudolph's red nose.  We usually get a bit silly and not all the reindeer my look the same, but that's part of the fun of working together.

The recipe is pretty simple and I like the combination of sweet and salty that this treat provides.

Ingredients:

1 bag of red and green M & M's 
1 bag large pretzels
1 package of almond bark, melted

Lay all the unbroken large pretzels on parchment paper.  Create the "antler's you'll need by using the broken pretzel and breaking them into pieces that look like antlers or just an inch long piece of pretzel. 
Separate the M&Ms into red and green.  Melt the almond bark in a large measuring cup according to the package directions.

Now here's where the fun starts.  With a spoon, but almond bark in the three openings of the pretzels.  Have one person add antlers in the two upper openings and also add two green M&Ms for eyes below the antlers.  Add Rudolph's red nose in the lower opening.  Allow almond bark to harden and enjoy.
Lining up all the pretzels
