Fun Holiday Treat
When it comes to decorating any holiday treat with frosting, pastry bags are where it’s at. They allow you to pipe the frosting with precision and add a decorative flare to cookies and cake. Making homemade frosting and filling your own piping bags can be a little bit of a hassle though. When you are looking for a quick fix for you and the family, these new Pillsbury™ Filled Pastry Bags are a lifesaver!
The Pillsbury™ Filled Pastry Bag Chocolate Fudge Frosting is all packaged up in convenient piping bags and ready to use. Simply rip the plastic end off the bag and you can get right to work. I used the Pillsbury™ Filled Pastry Bag Chocolate Fudge Frosting to pipe frosting onto the pretzels and DOVE chocolates to assemble the reindeer treats. This is a fun and easy activity that the family will enjoy helping with too!
After all of your reindeer treats are assembled, allow them to dry overnight. When you are ready to assemble the Reindeer Snack Mix, whip up a quick batch of Rice Krispie Treats using the Holiday Rice Krispies. After they cool for a bit, cut them into small pieces and combine them with the reindeer treats.
