Reindeer biscuits are totally Christmas and all kinds of fun, so today I’m sharing how I make easy reindeer biscuits using tiny teddies, jaffas, milk arrowroot biscuits, Nutella and a few choc chips.
Over the past three weeks I’ve been doing an activity advent calendar with the boys. Every day we open an envelope and read a part of the Christmas story, add a piece to our nativity set up and do a special activity.
Some of the activities are things we do (visit the Christmas lights, go to the carols, have a picnic dinner, buy a gift for a child in need etc), and others are things we make. One of the “make” activities I have planned is making simple reindeer biscuits, they are quick and easy and totally suitable for even the littlest kids to make.
How to make reindeer biscuits
There are heaps of different methods for reindeer biscuits available on Pinterest but I’ve created my own version which the boys love. You can use chocolate tiny teddies for antlers and white icing instead of Nutella if you prefer. I’ve also seen the nose done with a strawberries and cream lolly.
Once made the biscuits will go a bit soft if you leave them for a long time. I’ve found they are fine for a few hours in a sealed container but I probably wouldn’t make them more than that in advance.
- Milk arrowroot biscuits
- Tiny teddies (the honey ones or any light ones, the chocolate ones don’t contrast well against the Nutella)
- White choc chips
- Spread the nutella on each milk arrowroot
- Place the tiny teddies upside down at the top of the biscuit to form the reindeer antlers
- Place two white chocolate chips for eyes
- Stick on the reindeers Jaffa nose
- Super simple reindeer biscuits complete!
Aren’t they the cutest! Reindeer biscuits make a lovely little treat for Christmas Day or even a nice gift in a small box for a niece of nephew. You can whip them up in just a few minutes so they are ideal if you are short on time but want something Christmassy and fun.
I’d love to know if you try them 🙂
