No-bake reindeer noses for an edible Christmas gift

Posted in Gifts.

A quick, fun edible activity for kids – and a really cute token gift for them to pass out to neighbours or classmates at Christmas. And oh holy night, there’s no baking involved!

Bags of nine reindeer noses – one for each of Santa’s reindeer Prancer, Dancer, Donner, Blitzen, Dasher, Vixen, Comet, Cupid and Rudolph. Who knew reindeer were so delicious and sweet?


Malteasers (a 140g bag made eight bags)
Small cellophane or zip lock bags
Christmas patterned cardstock


  • Using your home computer and printer, print yourself a small ‘reindeer noses’ label. Alternatively, kids can write it – who doesn’t love neat handwriting!? Cut the Christmas cardstock to a size that it can be folded to fit over the top of the cellophane bag.

  • Fill each bag with eight Malteasers and one Jaffa. Push all the air out of the bag and seal.

  • Fold over the top of the bag, fitting a folded piece of cardstock over the top, followed by a ‘reindeer noses’ label. Holding all layers together, staple to secure.
