Reindeer Pops

Here's a quick and easy Christmas treat you can make with your little elves!

Dairy-Free Reindeer Pops
Large Marshmallows
Mini Pretzel Twists
Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips
Pillsbury Vanilla Frosting (or make your own)
Red Food Coloring
Lollipop Sticks

Insert a lollipop stick into the side of each marshmallow.  On a wax paper lined cookie sheet, lay out sets of 2 pretzel twists so they are touching each other.  Melt chocolate chips in double boiler or microwave.  Dip each marshmallow into melted chocolate, tap off excess.  Place the flat side of each dipped marshmallow onto a set of pretzel twists.  Chill for 10 minutes.  Color a small amount of frosting red.  Spoon the white and red frosting and also the remaining melted chocolate into 3 decorator bags fitted with a small round tip or spoon into Ziploc sandwich bags and cut off the corner to make a very small opening.  Use these to add eyes and a red nose to each reindeer pop.

(I originally found this idea on Pinterest, which then took me to this website... )
