We had a potluck Christmas party at WSU today and I decided to bring these triangle cheese reindeer snacks. I thought they were so cute when I saw them over at ediblecrafts.com.
I used Laughing Cow spreadable cheese triangles with pretzel twist antlers, peppercorn eyes and olive noses. I originally used red M&M's for the noses because I wanted them to be Rudolphs, but very quickly discovered that M&M's lose their candy coating on cheese. They started to bleed red everywhere! So I asked myself "What would MacGyver do?" And I quickly grabbed a jar of green pimento-stuffed olives. No one wants to eat a bleeding deer head. (According to the post at ediblecrafts.com, you're suppose to use a small circle of red bell pepper, but I didn't have any. Olives were a suitable substitute.)
