{VIDEO} Easy No Bake Candy Bar Reindeer Pops

These little reindeer are sooo cute and they're made entirely out of candy! 


These are a no-bake, quick, simple alternative to cake pops, they're so easy to make and they are a real crowd pleaser around the holidays. 


Bring them to school or work as individual gifts, or wrap them up as party favors at a Christmas party. Even create a whole edible scene as a festive centerpiece! 


All of the ingredients are edible (except the stick), so they are super fun to make and even more fun to teat!


Start by using melted candy melts as glue, to attach the stick and some tootsie roll legs, to your candy bar body.


I use and upside down egg carton as a stand, while I am making these, to hold it in place and let the chocolate dry. 


Attatch the head and make the antlers by using pretzels and edible gold "paint"!




If you guys give this a try, make sure to go follow me on social media @TheLindsayAnn and tag me in a picture, so I can go like all of your recreations, or share this video with somebody who you know would love this tutorial!




Even use them as a fun cake topper!

Candy Bar Reindeer Pops

You will need
  • clear vanilla extract: https://amzn.to/2RZSu7U
  • edible gold lustre dust: https://amzn.to/2DpxEdP
  • mini pretzel twists (antlers)
  • light cocoa candy melts, melted (glue)
  • lollipop sticks
  • "Fun Size" Milky Way (or Snickers) candy bars (body)
  • mini tootsie rolls midgees (head, ears, tail, legs)
  • small candy balls or sprinkles, pink, black, gold or red (nose)
  • edible gold pearls (bells), optional
  • Black edible marker or black food coloring and a fine tip paintbrush/toothpick (eyes)

Directions
Mix together a few drops of clear vanilla extract and edible gold lustre dust to form a paint. Cut a pretzel twist in half to form antlers and paint them gold. Let dry.

Melt 6oz of the candy melts according to package instructions.

Stick lollipop stick into the melted chocolate and through the bottom of the candy bar (make sure you don't poke it through the top). For the legs, cut one tootsie roll in half lengthwise, and then cut each half in half again so you have 4 equal strips. With melted chocolate, attach one leg to each corner of the bottom of the upside down candy bar. Once chocolate it dry, place in an upside down egg carton or styrofoam block to dry.

Shape a tootsie roll into the head, draw on eyes with the edible marker, or paint it on with black food coloring. Use melted chocolate to attach the nose. Use a piece of another tootsie roll to make ears and attach to the top of the head. Attach head onto the top front of candy bar. Add a tootsie roll tail and attach antlers on the top of the head. 

Make individual Rudolph pops and individually wrap them in clear plastic bags for a party favor, or you can create a display for your pops. To create a display that your pops can stand upright in, take a block of Styrofoam and wrap it in festive wrapping paper or tissue paper. Push the bottom of each stick into the styrofoam for guests to easily grab and enjoy.
