Rudolph Noses

The story of Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer has delighted children at Christmas time since 1939. When I attended an elementary school Christmas musical recently, I realized children are just as fascinated with Rudolph now as ever, and I hope they will continue to be for years to come.

To help be sure Rudolph remains the most famous reindeer of all, I've made Rudolph Noses for the children at my house to enjoy. These take practically no time to make, but you may want to make several batches because they disappear quickly too.



Rudolph Noses

What you need:
Bag of tiny pretzel twists
Bag of Hershey's kisses (or you can use Rolo's)
Bag of red and green M & M's (you'll only use the red ones)

Preheat oven to 170 degrees F. Prepare a sheet pan by lining with parchment paper. Lay pretzels out in a single layer on the parchment paper. Place one Hershey's kiss on each pretzel; bake for 4 minutes. Remove from oven and immediately top each with an M & M, pressing down gently. Allow to cool until firm. Place the pan in freezer for a few minutes to speed up cooling, if desired.



Rudolph noses are little salty, a little sweet, and a lot cute!
