Mozzarella Sticks Reindeer Snacks are the cutest Rudolph lookalikes this side of the North Pole. Toasty and cheesy, they make the best holiday nibbles for those little hands.

The one and only Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer! I sure like that guy. Luckily there’s not just one Rudolph in this bunch. You’ll want to snack on several of these bites, red noses and all.

I actually love cheesy mozzarella sticks. Dipped in marinara they have my snacking heart. Farm Rich Mozzarella Sticks are perfect for these tasty reindeer. I baked them according to package directions, all the while snapping some pretzel twists to create mini antlers. Add the antlers right when the sticks come out of the oven. I use the large pretzel twists because I they make the best shape, but you can use the minis too if you’d rather.

While the cheese sticks are in the oven, I also prepare some little plastic bags filled with ketchup and mayo. You only need about a tablespoon in each bag. I snip a tiny corner off each and use the mayo for the eyes and the ketchup for the Rudolph-red noses.

I make the little edible eyeballs from black olives. My favorite trick: using a drinking straw to cut olive eyes! Just cut the eyeball with the straw and then blow just a bit to pop it out of the end. Love it!
