Get crafty with your baking this holiday season and make peanut butter sandwich reindeer pops using RITZ Crackers.
Christmas brings out my creative side. I tend to get crafty with my desserts and experiment with making holiday treats extra festive. The other day I took out my lollipop sticks and made reindeer pops using RITZ Crackers, pretzels and candies.
So I headed to Walmart and found RITZ Crackers along with the rest of my ingredients. The eye candies and red nose candies can be found in the baking aisle (white chocolate chips and red sprinkles also work well for the eyes and nose respectively).
I must say, these reindeer pops were really fun (and easy) to make. I spread peanut butter on two RITZ Crackers, placed a lollipop stick in the center, and sandwiched the two RITZ Crackers together.
A crucial trick that I suggest following is freezing the pops before dipping them in chocolate. This will harden the peanut butter a bit so the lollipop stick is really set between the two RITZ Crackers. It will also make the chocolate harden more quickly when you dip the pops. Below is a step-by-step on how I made the reindeer pops…
After the reindeer pops are decorated, I placed the tray into the refrigerator to make sure the chocolate hardened and the decorations were set.
Now you could serve them this way OR you can take your craft skills to the next level and create a stand to showcase your creations!
To make a stand, take the RITZ Crackers box and poke holes into the back using a knife. Then, stick the pops into the box so they can stand upright for all to see.
This is an excellent way to present the treats if you’re having guests over for a holiday party!
Between the RITZ Crackers, peanut butter and chocolate, these reindeer pops really satisfy the sweet-and-salty craving. And the reindeer presentation gets everyone in the holiday spirit!
