Last minute prezzie panic? Fear not… reader Emily has the answer! An easy, gorgeous, sweet treat for Christmas Eve! 

Emily says:
Reindeer Bites are one of my favourite Christmas makes… they are INCREDIBLY easy to do and make brilliant last minute prezzies!

You will need:
200g chocolate chip cookies
100g soft cheese
200g milk chocolate
(this makes two or three dozen… adjust the measurements down if you want to make less!)

To make:
1. Crush the cookies to a fine powder… I used a rolling pin and a big bowl!
2. Mix the soft cheese into the cookie crumbs thoroughly, then use your hands to form the mixture into a ball of dough.
3. Refrigerate the dough for an hour.
4. Form the dough into small truffle-sized balls and put back into fridge for another half an hour.
5. Melt the chocolate… break it into small pieces and place in a heatproof dish resting above a pan of simmering water. Stir gently until melted. (Ask an adult to help you with this bit if you've never melted chocolate before…)
6. Coat the reindeer bites with chocolate and place onto a tray covered in greaseproof paper.
7. I sprinkled a few leftover crumbs on the chocolate coated bites!
8. Place in fridge to set… then serve or wrap!

Reindeer bites taste great and they're very fast and easy to make. They also taste amazing if eaten from frozen! I bought some gift boxes and cute cellophane bags on ebay to package them… have fun with the recipe… and HAPPY CHRISTMAS!
