Christmas reindeer marshmallow pops ingredients

  • 12 marshmallows
  • 180g dark chocolate Melts
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • pretzels, cut in half
  • candy eyes
  • red and brown mini M&Ms
  • lolllipop sticks


You’re going to want to have everything at the ready for this one folks – those pretzels painstakingly cut in half, your mini M&Ms sorted and your eyes paired. Ready, set, go.

  • In 20 second bursts, melt the chocolate in a glass bowl in the microwave, stirring between each burst.
  • Once melted and silky smooth, add the oil, half a tablespoon at a time, mixing until a thin coating consistency is achieved.
  • Dip the end of your lollipop stick in the chocolate, then push it into the marshmallow. Set aside to set while you repeat for all the others.
  • Arrange the pairs of antlers on a baking paper lined tray. Dip each marshmallow into the chocolate to cover completely and allow excess chocolate to drip off. Quickly place it on top of a pair of pretzel antlers so they stick together when set.
  • Add a mini M&M nose to each marshmallow before the chocolate sets.
  • Once the chocolate is set, use a toothpick and the melted chocolate to glue the eyes to the top of each head. Let set completely before eating. Yum!
