These Reindeer Snacks are a fun holiday recipe that is sure to bring smiles to the faces of kids of all ages and was created as part of a sponsored post for California Ripe Olives.
When I was little, one of my cousins convinced me to try California Black Ripe Olives and I immediately fell in love. My younger sister jokes about how I used to give black olives as a reward for good behavior when I was the “teacher” playing school. My love for black olives is still alive and well, so today I’m excited to share a fun, kid-friendly holiday recipe for Reindeer Snacks that include California Black Ripe Olives and will makes kids smile!
For more kid-friendly recipes, download the FREE A Year Full of Yummy! calendar from California Ripe Olives at the bottom of my blog post.
These Reindeer Snacks are easy to prepare and older kids can even make them by themselves. You need sliced California Black Ripe Olives, oval crackers, grape tomato halves, broken pretzels, and cream cheese.
Make five little plops of cream cheese on the oval cracker.
Add a sliced tomato for the reindeer nose, sliced black olives for the eyes and broken pretzels for the antlers.
(Or if it is easier for you, simply put the cream cheese on the olive slices, sliced tomato, and broken pretzels before putting them on the crackers.)
These simple, delicious Reindeer Snacks are sure to bring smiles to the faces of kids of all ages. They would be great for a holiday party, potluck or even as an after school snack!
