Reindeer Sandwiches

Add some holiday cheer to your kids lunch box this season with the adorable Reindeer Sandwiches.  Peanut Butter and Jelly gets taken to the next level in just a few minutes and only requires a simple Heart Shaped Cookie Cutter.


Truthfully you can make these with any filling, but I’m sticking to simple and adorable during the hectic holiday season.  Gather together your supplies:

  1. Peanut Butter & Jam
  2. Sandwich Bread
  3. M&M’s and mini chocolate chips
  4. Heart Shaped cookie cutter



Heart shaped cookie cutter on a piece of white bread.
Cut out heart shapes from the sandwich bread for the Reindeer head.


White bread slices cut into heart shapes with peanut butter and jelly on them.
Spread peanut butter on three hearts and jam on 3 hears.


Tuck pretzels into the top of the sandwich to form the antlers


Add mini chocolate chips to form eyes and an m&m for the nose.
