Reese’s Cup Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer Treats

Reese's Cup Rudolph

You’ll Need
(per Rudolph)
2 miniature Reese’s Cups
“edible glue” – chocolate frosting or melted chocolate
1 thin strip from green Fruit Roll-Ups
2 (1/4′ or 3/8″) candy eyes*
3 Tootsie Rolls Midges or use larger Tootsie Rolls
1 red M&M

optional: rolling-pin
kitchen shears, pizza wheel, and/or knife
optional: small leave shaped cookie cutter
optional: round cookie cutter the size of the bottom side of a Reese’s Cup Miniature (7/8 inch)
Unwrap your Reese’s Cup Miniatures, removing the foil and the paper cup. Set one
Reese’s Cup, wide end down on your table. Put a small dab of edible glue
(frosting or chocolate) on top of that Reese’s Cup. Set another Reese’s Cup on
it’s side on top of the edible glue.Cut thin strips from the green Fruit
Roll-Ups. Wrap one strip around the middle of the Reese’s Cup stack. Use a small
dab of edible glue to attach two eyes to the top of the Reese’s Cup stack.

Unwrap Tootsie Rolls. Flatten them. If needed, you can heat them up in the microwave for a few seconds, just to soften them. You can just use your fingers to flatten them, but a rolling-pin works well too.  Cut two antlers using kitchen shears, a knife, or a leaf-shaped cookie cutter. Trim if using a leaf cutter.  Yes, I realize mine look a bit like moose antlers, but I thought they were cute. If you want, you can make them look more realistic. Cut a circle out of a Tootsie Roll using kitchen shears or a round cutter, making it the same size as the narrow end of a Reese’s Cup (7/8 inch.) Use edible glue (frosting or chocolate) to attach the round piece of Tootsie Roll to the narrow end of the Reese’s Cup.
Attach the antlers to the back of the Reese’s Cup and add a red M&M nose on top of the Tootsie Roll round.
Eat, if you can bear biting off Rudolph’s head, or just set them around your
table at the holidays and enjoy their adorable faces. I’ll bet they disappear!
