Rudolph Snack Platter | Gluten Free, Vegan & Allergy Friendly

Friends!!! I’ve got picky eaters and food allergies in my home. So if I can’t get creative and make the healthy snack situation fun, then I’m all over it. The more fun it is, the more likely my kiddo’s are to eat it! Best of all, it’s easy peasy!

For this cute little Snack Platter I used Glutino brand pretzels so that the snack stayed gluten-free, wheat free and top 8 free.

You can use whatever seed or nut butter is safe for you, and if you’re feeling indulgent you could even use Biscoff Cookie Butter!!!

The candy eyes I used are top 8 free from Wilton. I find them at WalMart.

Now the most important part of all, Rudolph’s red nose! You don’t have to use maraschino cherries if you don’t want to! You could use cherries, cherry tomatoes, raspberries or even Dots (Tootsie Roll brand), to keep it top 8 free.

It’s cute, fun, festive and allergy friendly! Merry Christmas friends!
