Kids don’t usually need help getting in the Christmas spirit, but seeing the joy these celery reindeer snacks bring to children might just brighten up any humbugs.

How to Make Celery Reindeer Snacks

These snacks are so easy to make. It only takes a minute or two longer to turn ordinary celery sticks into reindeer snacks.

What You’ll Need

Chances are, you already have most of the items you’ll need for these snacks in your pantry already.

  • Celery
  • Fresh cranberries or red M&Ms
  • Pretzel twists
  • Peanut butter
  • Nutella
  • Candy eyes

If you don’t have (or want to use) fresh cranberries, you can use red M&Ms instead.

Not planning to make up enough of these snacks to use the entire container of candy eyes? Don’t worry, these are fun to add to almost any snack for a pop of unexpected fun!

If you want to simplify this snack, you can opt to make just one type of reindeer. Instead of using both peanut butter and Nutella, you can just use one for all of the snacks.

Step 1: Prepare Celery Sticks

Cut celery into sticks that are 3-4 inches long. Spread peanut butter and Nutella along the center of the stalk.

Step 2: Add Antlers

Break the pretzel twists in half. Arrange them at the top of the celery stick to form the antlers.

Step 3: Complete the Reindeer

Add two candy eyes below the antlers, then place a cranberry beneath each pair of eyes for the reindeer’s nose.

  1. These are awesome! I remember eating (and living) celery and peanut butter sticks as a kid. I never thought to add Nutella instead. What a great idea.

    These will be a great addition to our Christmas party. I love the idea of having a healthier addition to the treats table, especially such a cute one. Thanks so much for sharing!
