Ingredients

  • 12 oz Milk chocolate chopped
  • 6 oz. Caramel baking chips chopped
  • 8 Pretzels you can use large, mini, or a mix of the two
  • 16 Edible Candy Eyes
  • 8 Red Ball Sprinkles
  • Any other holiday sprinkles you like

Instructions

  • Place chopped milk chocolate in a microwave safe bowl and microwave 15 seconds at a time, stirring in between, until chocolate is melted and smooth.
  • Place chopped caramel baking chips in a microwave safe bowl and microwave 15 seconds at a time, stirring in between, until chocolate is melted and smooth.
  • Spread the milk chocolate on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Keeping the chocolate about 1/8 inch thick.
  • Pour the melted caramel baking chips in three straight lines across the milk chocolate layer.
  • Drag a toothpick gently through the lines making swirls of caramel in the chocolate.
  • Break the pretzels in half and place them slightly apart in pairs of two as antlers.
  • Under each set of antlers place two candy eyes and 1 red ball sprinkle as a nose.
  • Add any other holiday sprinkles you 'd like.
  • Place in refrigerator to harden for at least 1 hour.
  • Remove from fridge and lift chocolate from the parchment paper. Then break the chocolate apart into irregular pieces.
  • Enjoy!

Notes

  • Melt your chocolate chips and your caramel chips in separate bowls.
  • Have fun making different size reindeer by choosing different size pretzel antler.
  • Make sure you do not melt the chocolate for longer than 30 seconds at a time. Once the chocolate “bakes” you will have to start all over.
  • Make sure the bark is completely frozen before removing from the refrigerator. 
  • Box it up and give it to friends for the holidays!
