Now that we’ve taken care of Santa, we should probably make sure the reindeer get fed, too.IMG_0544 (800x533)

In the theme of everything tastes better when covered in chocolate, this is a fairly healthy snack with a nice, sweet twist.

And once you’ve already covered everything in white chocolate…IMG_0516 (800x533)

….well, why not add a little melted dark chocolate, too?IMG_0521 (800x533)

Ginger and cinnamon add a little intrigue, but you can leave them out if you wish. [Although I hear Rudolph is a fan.]IMG_0488 (800x533)

This is perfectly customizable, but I would highly recommend NOT skipping the roasted edamame. They turned out to be my favorite part, despite my, “What the he&* are you doing, Sarah?” thought when I threw them in. :)IMG_0453 (533x800)

The reindeer will appreciate this.IMG_0478 (800x534)

So will you.IMG_0533 (800x533)
