A Rudie Snack

It’s a virtual Advent Calendar!

This really is the most wonderful time of the year, isn’t it?

I will forever be a Christmas romantic

and I am so excited to celebrate with all of you this year.

There is going to be some fun stuff

going on this month over here–

I feel like Santa Claus incarnate,

so keep your eyes peeled.

I’m giggling like a school girl right now.

And if you aren’t already excited about the upcoming holidays,

I am going to shove it down your throats until you are

giddy with snowflakes.

So why don’t we start a day early

and I introduce you to my newest friend,


Rudolph Cookie Pops Recipe


To make 1 Rudie Pop

  • HomeFree mini Cookies (2)
  • creamy peanut butter for the filling
  • edible eyes (or icing topped off with non-dairy mini chocolate chips)
  • 1/2 piece Gorilla Munch GF cereal, covered with red icing
  • 3 GF pretzel sticks (use non-dairy melted chocolate for glue)
  • lollipop stick


  1. Assemble the antlers: Use melted chocolate to glue together pieces of the pretzels to a longer piece. I really liked the way it looks with the chocolate as the glue. If it bothers you, you can just cover the assembled pretzel antler with chocolate. Freeze either way in order to allow them to set.
  2. Assemble the body:Β Place 1 heaping teaspoon full of peanut butter onto one cookie. Once the antlers have set, place both onto the bed of peanut butter. Place another teaspoon full of peanut butter onto the other cookie. Sandwich together. Gently place the stick into the the pb. Freeze a good 15 minutes.
  3. Decorate.

  2. I just found your blog. You are too cute and these rudolf cookies are adorable! We are start our wooden countdown calendar tomorrow with our daughter. She is psyched!!

    • I just saw your countdown calendar and I am in love! I just love how you use activities instead of chocolates. That is such a special tradition to share with your daughter…and I’m kinda wishing you would adopt me so I can partake in it πŸ™‚

  3. Well, I’m totally making these for my Christmas party too. Except my christmas parties happen in my room, with just me, and my christmas decorations. So I’ll probably just make one of these.
    But they’re so cute!

    I actually probably will make these for our christmas party at work (yeah, I do go to christmas parties with people. But the one’s by myself are always the best). I’m sure everybody would love these. Despite the fact that everyone thinks vegan food is gross.

    • I think you should invite me to one of your solo Christmas parties (although then it wouldn’t be solo anymore, now would it?) I will bring the homemade paper chain decorations.

      • woo!

        I have watched Elf for three days in a row and have stayed up late every night after, making paper snowflakes for my room.

        That movie was meant for me.

        When I was in high school there was a boy that would dress up as Elf every christmas and hide behind poles and jump out quoting lines from the movie. He looked just like him, with the curly hair. The costume and all – even the yellow tights.

        But yes, bring the paper chains. I’m sure you could handle those.. πŸ™‚

        • I’m kinda in love with this kid from your high school. I think that would make me smile every time I saw him pop out from behind a tree. I hope he didn’t get beat up after school every day. If he went to my school, that would have been without a doubt.

          December 1, 2011
          • I wish I was still in contact with him. He was such a cool kid. I haven’t seen him since we graduated two years ago.
            But I went to an art high school so it’s kind of expected for weird kids like that to be part of picture.. πŸ˜€ It was a really small high school of only 400 kids, so everyone got along. No beating each other up!

            December 1, 2011
            • Something else we share–I went to a performing arts high school. Unfortunately the kids weren’t as nice as your former classmates…

              December 1, 2011
              • Wow, thay’s awesome! It all makes sense now πŸ™‚

                December 1, 2011
                • *that’s (I’m a bad typist – jittery fingers)

                  December 1, 2011
                • Thay’s is awesome, you are right! πŸ™‚ And what does “It all makes sense now” mean anyway????

                  December 1, 2011
                  • haha

                    I mean that you seem like the type of person that likes performing and entertaining people

                    December 1, 2011
  4. I’m totally making these (with my gingersnap cookies) for my holiday party. HELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL yes, Rudolph.

    November 30, 2011
    • I never made cool stuff in school. Now I am thinking I didn’t get my money’s worth…

      November 30, 2011
  6. YAY! I love advent calendars! And honestly I’m just a big nerd for Christmas. (My blog theme is about to change too… but not til tomorrow!)

    Those are too freakin’ cute, by the way. Thanks for making me want to eat reindeers for the first time ever.

    November 30, 2011
    • I love advent calendars too! Except that chocolate was always terrible, wasn’t it??? You are enduring a blog theme change?!! I cannot wait, Nikki!!

      November 30, 2011
  7. Suuuuuper cute =)

    November 30, 2011
  8. I’m ready for you to bring one to my desk so I can have it with my Earl Grey tea ; )

    November 30, 2011
    • So bossy! Hehehe. P.S. I am just in love with the recipes in your cookbook! I cannot wait to make freaking cornbread in my slow cooker. Genius.

    So cute! This would be the best thing for a kid’s schoolroom or party. I’d make them for me but I don’t have your control – all the pieces and parts would be down my gullet before assembly. Giddy with snowflakes reminds me of the weather forecast I just saw. “And this area may experience white snowflakes.” WHITE snowflakes? Compared to what? Pink, purple or blue? The only colored snow I’ve ever seen was yellow and if I’ve told Rudolph once…

    November 30, 2011
    • White snowflakes. snickering. That is a rather absurd observation, isn’t it?? Oh Texas. And who said that I have self-control??? I should take pictures of what it *really* looks like when I am making these food items πŸ™‚ ha

      November 30, 2011
  10. I love that you are doing a virtual advent calendar, yay!!! I completely agree that this is the most wonderful time of year! And those adorable Rudies are so fun, and delicious!!!! πŸ™‚

    November 30, 2011
  11. Christmas. Rudolph. Excited already!!

    November 30, 2011
    • Good, Dawn. That is the spirit πŸ™‚

      November 30, 2011
  12. Oh My Nog. So sweet!! But what do you use 1/2 piece of for the nose? (Also “giddy with snowflakes” LOL! πŸ˜€ )

    November 30, 2011
    • You have to either: 1). eat it; or 2). make 2 Rudies πŸ™‚ (I thought you would be pleased with that phrase. I did it with you in mind!)

      November 30, 2011
      • Eat WHAT?! A pretzel? A cookie? An eye? A rock?! I’m dying here!! πŸ™‚

        November 30, 2011
        • hahahaha!!! I think you are the only one who actually reads through the ingredients list (thank God too, because you are my editor as well!) Oh damn, I forgot to write that in. At first I thought you were asking me what do you do with the other 1/2 piece. Ooopsie πŸ™‚ I used the Gorilla Munch cereal–1/2 piece. There, you happy now???!!! haha

          November 30, 2011
          • That makes sense because they are round. And much more appetizing than rocks. πŸ˜‰

            November 30, 2011
            • Yes, Brooke, you are right. Cereal *is* a better choice than rocks. (I am laughing so hard right now!)

              November 30, 2011
  13. ohhhh so cute!
