How to Peanut Butter Reindeer Celery Sticks!
Trim the ends off of celery sticks, wash and dry.
Use a spoon to fill the celery stick with peanut butter.
Note: If using natural creamy peanut butter, it may be too runny to work with.
Filling the celery sticks with peanut butter and then refrigerating for 20 minutes will help the peanut butter firm up a bit before adding the pretzels and candies.
Break apart mini pretzel twists and add two to the top of the celery stick to create antlers. Add a little extra peanut butter in the center of the antlers as “glue” to help them stick if necessary.
Add two eyes in the center of the stick.
Add a red m&m on the bottom of the celery stick to create a red “nose” for Rudolph or add a brown m&m “nose” to create the rest of the reindeer bunch.
Variations you could try…
Can’t have peanut butter? You could try using hummus or a chocolate spread.
If you don’t have M&Ms, you can use fresh raspberries to make the reindeer noses and a chocolate chip for regular noses.
