Granola Truffle Reindeer

With Fieldstone Premium Granola, honey, seed butter, and pretzels as antlers, these delightful treats will undoubtedly become a favorite holiday snack for your students! Crafting these truffles is a breeze, so feel free to invite students to help out in making these yummy reindeer! 


  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup seed butter
  • 1 1/2 cups Fieldstone Premium Granola
  • 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips, plus more for decorating
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Mini pretzel twists
  • Dried cranberries
  • Chocolate chips (or candy eyeballs)


  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, combine all the ingredients except for the decorations. If the mixture seems too dry, add more seed butter. If it feels too wet, add more granola.
  3. Stir the ingredients until well combined.
  4. Take about 1-2 tablespoons of the mixture from the bowl and roll it into a ball. Wear gloves to prevent the mixture from sticking to your hands as you roll.
  5. Shape the remaining mixture into equally sized truffles and place them on the parchment paper-lined baking sheet.
  6. Break the mini pretzels in half to create antlers.
  7. Microwave a small amount of chocolate chips in 15-30 second intervals, stirring after each session, until melted. Set aside a few chocolate chips for the eyes.
  8. Dip one end of a pretzel half into the melted chocolate and insert it into the side of a truffle to create an antler. The chocolate will help hold it in place. Repeat this step for all the truffles.
  9. For the noses, dip one side of a dried cranberry into the melted chocolate and attach it to the center of each truffle.
  10. For the eyes, dip the flat part of a chocolate chip into the melted chocolate and carefully place it on each side of the nose, slightly higher than the nose. Repeat this step for the other eye.
  11. Decorate the truffles with additional mini chocolate chips or candy eyeballs as desired.
  12. Allow the truffles to cool and the chocolate to set before serving. Enjoy!
