25 small round red M&M chocolate candies

Place one chocolate candy melt on top of each pretzel.

Place the baking sheet in the oven until the chocolate candy melts are soft. This usually takes 2-3 minutes.

Antlers can be made by breaking the pretzels in half. Have some extra pretzels on hand because some may break.

After removing them from the oven, now it's time to make the reindeer faces. 

Add the red M&M candy nose and eyes to each reindeer.

Time to add the antlers! To do this, place a ¼ cup of candy melts in a small microwave-safe bowl. Heat in 30-second increments in the microwave until melted. Stir until it's a smooth consistency.

Dip the bottom of each antler into the melted chocolate and add to the reindeer.

You'll need to allow some drying time so they can set before eating or adding to a box.
