Babybel Reindeer (GF)


What do you get when you combine Babybel cheese + pretzels + some candy??? Why you get Babybel Reindeer of course!  

Babybel Reindeer take just a matter of minutes to make, are super cute on a serving tray and they make a great little snack or appetizer. 

Christmas appetizer These  Babybel Reindeer require only a few ingredients and a few minutes to make.

Christmas appetizer Start by unwrapping any flavor of Babybel cheese.

Christmas appetizer Now, take a knife and make two slits where the reindeer “antlers” will go. I used a sharp knife because it had a pointed tip and I could easily control the size of the slit.

Christmas appetizer Carefully insert a pretzel into the slit in the cheese. (*Babybel cheese is naturally gluten-free but be sure to use gluten-free pretzels for a gluten-free snack).
Carefully insert the second pretzel. The pretzels will be the “antlers” for the reindeer.

Christmas appetizer Now add drops of icing to secure the candy eyes. I purchased the candies from my local grocery store. (*GF Option: always check the ingredients to make sure the icing and candy are gluten-free!)

It truly only takes a matter of minutes to make these adorable little reindeer. Even very young children can help create them. Simply make the slits in the Babybel cheese for them and let them attach the pretzels and candies. The kids may even want to name their reindeer… just like Santa’s!

Christmas appetizer This is a super fun activity to do with the kids or grandchildren, and they are a perfect appetizer for the upcoming holidays. Sprinkle them on a platter, along with other various appetizers, or make a whole herd of deer! The possibilities are endless!
