Simple Candy Cane & Chocolate Rudolph Treats for Christmas

Candy Cane Rudolph for Christmas



To make 1 dozen treats:

  • 24 container Mini candy canes
  • about 6 oz. of brown chocolate melts – you’ll have some excess
  • 12 red candy for the nose, like Sixlets or mini M&Ms
  • 24 candy eyes –
  • Optional holly sprinkles

Extra equipment needed:

  • wax paper
  • toothpick
  • small microwave proof bowl


  • melt the chocolate in the microwave-proof bowl – I usually pop the bowl into the microwave for 1 minute, stir and throw it back in for 30 more seconds
  • Have some wax paper ready on your work surface, and set out your supplies
  • dip the candy canes into the chocolate, 1 at a time – placing them down in pairs facing the opposite way on the wax paper
  • After you have made each pair of chocolate candy canes, decorate them while the chocolate is still melted and warm
  • Add the eyes and the nose
  • If you want, you can add the holly sprinkles
  • If the chocolate has already dried before you can stick the decorations on, dip your toothpick into the chocolate and use that as chocolate glue to adhere your pieces
