Recipe adapted from Cute Food for Kids.

A two second, cute-as-can-be appetizer for Christmas… cheesy reindeer!

Use Laughing Cow spreadable cheese triangles with pretzel twist antlers, peppercorn eyes and olive noses. Note, do not use red M&M’s because M&M’s lose their candy coating on cheese. You can also use a small circle of red bell pepper for the nose and small pieces of black olives for the eyes.
