Chocolate Ginger Bread Reindeers


  • 125g unsalted vegan butter softened
  • 1/2 cup soft brown sugar or coconut sugar
  • 2/3 cup rice malt syrup
  • 2 1/2 cups plain flour (and extra for rolling)
  • 2 teaspoons ground ginger and/or sweet mixed spice
  • 1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 block of Pana Chocolate and small smarties packet 


Preheat over to 160C 

In a large bowl combine butter, sugar, golden syrup, spices and bicarb. Combine well.

Sift in flour slowly and mix until just combined.

Take the dough mixture and place on a floured surface and knead until . If the dough is too soft (sometimes moisture varies with coconut and brown sugars) add a little more flour (or refrigerate to set a little).

Roll out dough to 5mm thickness and cut with shaped cutter.

Add smarties button and bake in batches for around 8 minutes on a cookie tray lined with baking paper.

Cool on a wire rack and decorate ears dipped in melted chocolate and allow to set or cool in fridge.

Happy Christmas Eve hope you’re having an amazing night with family and friends.
