Food Art :: Rudolph the Rice Cake Reindeer

My friends with kidlets are always asking for easy food art tutorials, so here’s one to get you in the holiday spirit. I made Rudolph the Rice cake Reindeer out of simple ingredients I had in my kitchen. Cut the rice cakes and bananas for the little people and they can put the rest of this festive vegan snack together…easy peasy.

You will need:

Gluten free pretzels

Speculoos cookie butter (use nut or seed butter to keep it gluten-free)

Vegan chocolate chips

Cacao nibs

Organic rice cakes

Cranberry jam

Banana slices

This project was part of a collaboration I did with Tasha Edwards of The Sweetest Vegan and Heart of Tarts. Check out the awesome Santa tart she made here.

If you need more cute reindeer snacks, try these sweet cookies by Lainey of  Simply Bakings. Fun fact: Did you know Nutter Butter cookies are accidentally vegan?

  1. Such fun with food!! I love it! Those Nutter Butter reindeer look insane!

  2. Haha, how cute, and such a clever use of pretzels for antlers! I never would have thought of that.

    • Aloha Hannah! I saw all the crafty kids using pretzels for reindeer cuteness on Pinterest, so I figured I’d give it a go 🙂
