NYE Party Food: Mini Roll Reindeer

Where has the year gone? It feels like only yesterday I was sitting down on the sofa ready to watch the Opening Ceremony of the London Olypmics or studying the doors of the Lindo Wing of St  Mary's Hospital waiting for baby Prince George to emerge. But as they say, time flys when you're having fun!

So to make the most of the very last day of 2014 tomorrow (bearing in mind nobody will ever see that day again in history!) why not spend the morning before the NYE party you are very likely to be attending/ hosting, doing some Christmas baking! These Swiss roll Reindeer are the perfectly chocolatey treat for all the family- plus they are SO easy and quick to make!

First melt some white chocolate in a bowl over a pan of simmering water (don’t let the bowl touch the water). Dip one end of a chocolate mini roll in the melted chocolate, twisting it until the chocolate stops dripping. On a tray stand the roll so the dipped end is pointing up, then pop a red Smartie on top, for a nose and two edible Silver Balls for eyes. You may want to put them all in a fridge to set, otherwise it takes ages!

While the rolls are setting, start breaking a handful of salted pretzels so they look a bit like antlers, two pre roll but you knew that anyway! Line up two mint Matchmakers and cut them in the middle, equally to form the reindeers legs. Be careful that they are all the same otherwise you will end up with a wonky reindeer! 

When the chocolate is set, use a sewer or knife to poke two small hole in the top of the reindeers head  and wiggle in the pretzel antlers. Do the same underneath the roll and put in the matchmaker legs. And Ta-daa you have your naughty Christmas treat! How cute are they :) 

What do you think? Easy enough?
