What you’ll need for Reindeer Christmas Sandwiches

how to make these Festive Sandwiches
To make these Reindeer sandwiches, place bread on a cutting board and cut out six heart shapes. Kids can help cut out each of the hearts using the heart cookie cutter.
Next, you’re going to put peanut butter on three hearts and jelly or fresh fruit preserve on the other three hearts. Then place the pieces together to form a sandwich.
Now for the fun part and my son’s favorite thing to do when we do these reindeer sandwiches.
Stick two pretzels at the top of each side of the hearts for antlers. You can let kids do this part if you want. My son always sticks on the pretzel antlers on the Reindeers.
Then have the kids add two chocolate chips for the eyes and an M&M’s for the nose. M&M’s can be red for Rudolph or brown, whichever they choose.
My son loves using the red M&M’s to make Rudolph the Red-Nose Reindeer.
Aren’t these Reindeer sandwiches adorable and easy to make? They’re perfect for the whole family to make together and enjoy during the holidays.
They make a great snack or serve for lunch with a cup of hot cocoa.
Heck, you could even make these sandwiches to eat while watching Rudolph the Red-Nose Reindeer on family movie night.
Also, this recipe can easily be doubled or tripled to make more to share with guest.
