This easy to make Chocolate reindeer is so fun for holiday baking! Made with simple ingredients, the family will love it.


  • 1 (11.5 oz) bag of milk chocolate chips
  • 2 tsp vegetable or coconut oil OR 1 tbsp paramount crystals
  • 20 Small Candy Eyeballs
  • 10 Small Red Chocolate M&Ms
  • 20-30 Mini Pretzels (they have a tendency to break)
  • Snowflakes or holiday sprinkles of choice


  1. Place chocolate chips and paramount crystals in a microwave-safe bowl and heat on HIGH for one minute.
  2. Stir and return to microwave heating in 15-sec increments until smooth. Be careful not to burn it.
  3. Pour chocolate onto a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  4. Smooth chocolate over the parchment to 1/8" thickness.
  5. Place red candy sporadically on the chocolate, these will be the noses. Next, add two candy eyeballs about the red candy.
  6. Break pretzels in half and place them above the eyes.
  7. Add sprinkles all around fill in the chocolate areas.
  8. Chill in the fridge for 30-45 mins
  9. The bark is done when it easily peels off the parchment paper
  10. Break into pieces and enjoy


The thickness of the bottom layer of chocolate will determine how long it takes for the bark to harden.
Adding too much oil can change the consistency and taste of the bark which is why I highly recommend using paramount crystals.
Paramount crystals are primarily made with hydrogenated palm kernel oil and are used professionally in the chocolate and candy-making process to help smooth it out.
