How to Make Reindeer Cookies

Updated: Jun 19, 2022

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Like many others around the world, it's our absolute favourite time of the year. In the lead up to each Christmas, I like to make something ~Christmassy~, but it has to be:

- Easy (so my children can be involved)

- Simple (who has time to make complicated baked goods, at this time of year?)

- Affordable (it's all for fun, after all)

- Preferably not baked (this way it's a bit safer for children to get involved)

Today, I'll show you how to make easy and adorable Rudolph the Reindeer cookies! These are perfect for when you're time poor, on a budget and want to involve your kids in a fun Christmas activity.

These cookies are also perfect for morning tea, should you need them for Playgroups, catchups and kid's Christmas parties.

As always, check what you have in the fridge and pantry before you hit the shops. Otherwise, keep on reading below to see what you need to make these perfect and simple Christmas cookies!


  1. Arrowroot Plain Biscuits | BUY HERE

  2. Edible Candy Eyes | BUY HERE

  3. Strawberry and Cream Lollies | BUY HERE

  4. Nutella Chocolate Spread | BUY HERE

  5. Tiny Teddies Biscuits (Choc Chip) | BUY HERE

🎅🏻 METHOD 🎅🏻

  1. Take your Arrowroot Plain Biscuits, and using a butter knife or small cake scraper, gently apply the Nutella spread all over the surface. If you don't want to use Nutella, you can use melted cooking chocolate that has cooled.

  2. Take two Tiny Teddies biscuits, turn them upside down, and place/stick them on the top of the Reindeer's head. This represents Rudolph the Reindeer's antlers on top of his head!

  3. Next, add two edible candy eyes below the antlers you've just made.

  4. Finally, add one strawberry and cream lolly below the edible candy eyes. This represents Rudolph the Reindeer's cute red nose!

  5. Place your biscuits in the fridge to set them for 1-3 hours or so. Enjoy!
