Three boys, one dog, one chinchilla…Sometimes, you just have to STOP…and Count To Ten.

Mastercard is having a “Here’s to Mom” promotion right now.

All you have to do is go HERE and register your Mastercard.  Shop online between Nov. 15th and Dec. 31st, 2011.  After spending $200 online, you’ll receive a Mastercard giftcard for $20.  Can you believe it??  Mastercard is paying US to shop this holiday season.   I LOVE IT!

After I registered my Mastercard, I had to do a little shopping and ordered THIS:

Now that I got a little shopping out of the way…onto looking for easy recipes to make. (remember, I’m NOT the best cook.  SO, when I share a recipe with you, you KNOW it will be SUPER easy)

I’ve STARTED making a few holiday treats.  You’ve seen my Santa Hat Brownies…so, I headed over to Recipe.com to look for EASY, new holiday ideas.  And….look what I found!

I can make this…I can make this!  These are Reindeer Apple snacks!  So Cute!

What you’ll need:

  • 1 apple
  • 10 pretzel rings
  • raisins
  • mini chocolate chips (I only had butterscotch chips)
.
These are all the things that you probably already have in your pantry.  (notice the pretzels are from Halloween).  BUT, they will work!
Now, simply slice your apple, and use something round to make it a circular shape. (I used a baby bottle)
.
.
Place your apple circles on a plate and start creating.
.
.
Once you’ve made eyes and mouths…it’s time to add a circular pretzel to outline the apple circle.
.
.
Next, break up your pretzels and give your little reindeer antlers.
.
.
and there you go!  EASY reindeer snacks that your kids will LOVE eating this holiday season.
