How to Make Rudolph Reindeer Biscuits
- 1 packet of Tim Tam biscuits
- Edible eye decorations
- Mini pretzels
- Red M&Ms
- 40g of chocolate melts
1. To start, melt the chocolate in the microwave in 20-second bursts, stirring between each burst, until melted and smooth. Transfer the melted chocolate into a small piping bag (or zip-lock bag). This will be your glue to stick your reindeer features on the Tim Tams.
2. Take the packet of Tim Tam biscuits and place the biscuits on a tray or board and gather your supplies so they’re all prepped and ready to go.
3. Snip a tiny corner off of the zip-lock bag of chocolate and dot the top corners of one of the Tim Tam biscuits with the melted chocolate and ‘glue’ a mini shaped pretzel in each corner to become deer antlers. You may need to prop up your pretzels with a wooden spoon or chopping board for pretzel support while the chocolate sets. Repeat for each Tim Tam biscuit.
4. Next, it’s time for the eyes! Dot two candy eyes into place for your reindeer’s peepers. Repeat for all the Tim Tam biscuits.
5. Finally, it’s time to place that red reindeer nose that Rudolph is well known and loved for! Place a small dot of chocolate in the centre of the Tim Tam biscuit and carefully stick a red M&M on top and wait for it to set. Repeat for all the remaining Tim Tam biscuits.
6. Now you have a plate of super cute no-bake Rudolph the reindeer biscuits! Delicious!
There is a word of caution though: these reindeer REALLY don’t like the heat. It’s a good idea to keep them in the fridge or in an air-conditioned climate for non-melting comfort. And if you want to take these guys on a picnic? Keep them in a plastic container in an esky!
Be sure to add these reindeer to your no-bake kitchen Christmas activity file. Pinterest is a wonderful place for Christmas ideas this no-bake idea has been recreated quite a few times, so while the original source is unknown, it’s clearly a loved and delicious bikkie concept and shared by many!
