112 oz. package of dark chocolate melting wafers (or milk chocolate if you prefer)

Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside. Break pretzels in half to form two antlers. Set those aside along with your candy eyes, and M&Ms.
Melt your chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl in the microwave in 30 second increments until completely melted, stirring every 30 seconds whether you feel like it needs it or not.
Dip Oreo one at a time in melted chocolate using a three-pronged fork or regular fork. Shake any excess chocolate off before placing on baking sheet. Immediately place pretzels on top for the antlers, candy eyes, and red M&M. If chocolate becomes too thick and not coating the Oreo well, place in the microwave and re-melt in 15 second increments.
Continue repeating process until all Oreos are dipped. Place in the refrigerator for at least 20 minutes to harden up before enjoying!
Store reminder in an airtight container in the refrigerator. I use a big plastic container and separate layers with a sheet of wax or parchment paper. Reindeer will taste delicious for up to 3 days.
