Last year we made some really easy Decorated Oreo Snowmen for a quick Christmas Snack for kids to make and we loved it so much that this year we decided to share another Christmas Oreo Snack for kids to make this time a Rudolph and Reindeer Oreo Cookie Snack.
Inspired by one of our favourite Christmas Books and Songs this is relatively easy to make and the kids will love them for their Christmas Parties at school. We used Mint Oreos for a peppermint Christmas flavour but you could easily swap them for one of the other Oreos.
Easy Reindeer Christmas Snack for Kids Christmas Parties
These are best made in a couple of stages. The first is to make the antlers for your Reindeer.
Then using the same Bow Mold that we used for our Witches Cupcakes create a fondant bow for the female reindeer.
Lastly put it all together and finish it off and serve to your Kids Christmas Party Guests.
