Lamington Reindeer Recipe | Christmas Party Snack

This is the season to savor and celebrate! Before we dive into today's recipe, I want to extend my warmest wishes to you. May your Christmas be filled with laughter, your holidays be brimming with joy, and your tables adorned with culinary delights! Advanced Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, dear readers! 

Let's move on to today's festive delight – Lamington Reindeer! Now, to be frank, it's not so much a recipe as it is a creative assembly of readily available treats. The Lamington Reindeer is a delightful twist on the classic lamington, infusing a touch of holiday whimsy into these delectable delights. So, get ready for a playful and stress-free way to add a dash of festive charm to your celebrations. Let the assembling fun begin! 

If you can't find lamingtons in your area, why not make them yourself? Simply cut sponge cakes into cubes, coat them in melted chocolate, and generously roll them in desiccated coconut.
Lamingtons: as the base (see method to make Lamington from scratch)
Pretzels: for the antlers
Candy eyes: for the eyes
Red candy-coated chocolate: for the nose 
To make Lamingtons, simply cut sponge cakes into cubes, coat them in melted chocolate, and generously roll them in desiccated coconut. Allow it to set completely before using. I sourced them from my supermarket. Gather all the ingredients needed as shown in the picture below:
Assemble the Base:
Begin by placing the Lamingtons as the base, creating the body of your adorable Lamington Reindeer.
Add the Antlers:
Insert pretzels into the top of each Lamington, forming whimsical antlers for your festive creation.
Attach the Eyes:
Affix candy eyes onto the Lamington, bringing your reindeer to life with charming expressions.
Adorn with a Nose:
Complete the look by placing a red candy-coated chocolate at the center, crafting the distinctive nose of your Lamington Reindeer.
Lamington Reindeer is ready, and its charm is bound to attract the children at the Christmas party.

Points to remember:
  • Homemade lamingtons: Simply cut sponge cakes into cubes, coat them in melted chocolate, and generously roll them in desiccated coconut. Allow them to set for some time.
  • For the ears, you have the flexibility to replace pretzels with almond slices, wafer sticks, or other alternatives.
  • I used Jaffas for the nose, but feel free to use any red-coated chocolate for a delightful touch.
Warm Regards,
Happy's Cook - Divya
