Reindeer Sammies

Need a cute idea to please the kids in your life this Christmas season? Try these Rudolph the Reindeer treats. Take your basic Ritz sammie, peanut butter smashed between two Ritz crackers, dipped in chocolate, add a few other ingredients and you have a reindeer. I dont have a real recipe for this one, but here's the basic idea:

*Smear peanut butter between two ritz crackers and sandwhich together.
*Melt some candy melts in a double boiler, or in a small bowl placed over a bit of simmering water in a saucepan.
*Dip the crackers in the chocolate and set on a piece of wax paper to dry. While the "head" is still wet, dip two small twist pretzels and place next to the head so the chocolates touch and allow to harden together.
*Also while the "head" is still wet, place chocolate chips on the face for eyes and a red hot for the nose. (It helps to have a three year old help with this step! :)
*I used roughly two sleeves of ritz and one pkg of candy melts. I had leftover chocolate, which was perfect because I love chocolate covered pretzels:
