Ingredients needed for these reindeer cookies


Before we get to the full recipe below, here are a few notes about the ingredients that you will need to make this chocolate reindeer cookie recipe:

  • Ritz Crackers: can also use gluten-free crackers if needed.
  • Peanut Butter: not the natural kind (probably the only time I will tell you this) but I have found that when using the natural peanut butter it is too oily and the crackers will slide.
  • Chocolate Chips: semi-sweet, dark chocolate or allergy-friendly chips will work.
  • Coconut Oil: helps make the chocolate melt and harden.
  • Decorations: pretzels for antlers, red hots for reindeer nose and candy eyes. Or keep it simple and just add a pinch of sprinkles to the top of these cookies.
