Day 12: Harlem Macaroni Kid Christmas Countdown

Family Traditions: Make Breadstick Reindeer

December 13, 2022

We love cooking during the holidays. As your child gets older, they can make this on their own with supervision.

You can make these snacks using breadsticks, knot shape pretzels and chocolate and candy

Supplies needed

4 tablespoons of chocolate chips

around 6 pretzels

3 breadsticks

18 little round candies

black or brown writing icing

baking parchment

Step 1: Melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a pan of hot water. Leave until the chocolate melts. Take the bowl off the pan wearing oven mittens.

Step 2: Cut each pretzel in half. Don't worry if it breaks

Step 3: Break each breadstick in half and put it on parchment paper

Step 4: Dip the rounded end of the breadstick in the melted chocolate and put the paper

Step 5: Push two pretzel pieces into the chocolate, add two candies for eyes and one candy nose

Step 6: Make the rest and chill for ten minutes until chocolate sets

Step 7: Dot on the writing icing for eyes
