Make a Candy Cane Reindeer as a great family Christmas food craft. These little decorations serve a dual purpose -- they look cute and they taste great!

What you'll need:

Candy cane

Brown chenille stem

2 wiggle eyes

Craft glue

Small red pom-pom

To make your Candy Cane Reindeer:

  1. Take an unbroken candy cane, still wrapped in plastic wrap, and twist a brown chenille stem around the curve so the two ends are even.
  2. Twist the chenille stem so it is secured to Rudolph's head -- we don't want Rudolph's antlers to slip! Bend the ends of the chenille stems to create the reindeer's antlers.
  3. Glue a wiggle eye on either side of the slope of the curve of the candy cane.
  4. Add a red pom-pom nose to the end of the curve, and spruce up your Christmas tree with your candy cane reindeer.

This candy ornament is as fun to eat as it is to make. But don't eat it too quickly. You'll want to enjoy seeing it on your Christmas tree.

For a treat that will be more filling, try making the Santa Salad. We'll show you how in the next section.
