Reindeer Food for Kids

  • 12 cups Crispix cereal
  • 1 bag (12 oz) semi-sweet chocolate or butterscotch chips
  • 3/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup powdered sugar

In a very large pot over low heat, melt peanut butter and chocolate chips, stirring frequently.

Remove from heat and add cereal, stirring gently to coat well. Add the powdered sugar, a bit at a time, and continue stirring until mixture is completely combined.

Spread pieces on a cookie sheet or other clean, flat surface, separating them so they don't stick together. Allow to cool completely. Store in an airtight container until ready to serve.

Makes about 12 1-cup servings.

reindeer food for the kiddies to eat:
rolled oats and the sparkle sugar sprinkles (red and green of course). cinnimon if you want for a little more flavor

reindeer food for the reindeer (throw on lawn for reindeer on Christmas even)
rolled oats and glitter.  

I don't have exact measurements, I just eyeball it.

The chocolate chex mix, as you put it, is what my family calls puppy chow, because once you pour the powdered sugar on it, it does look like dog food!! But MY recipe for reindeer food is the rolled oats and sparkly confetti. Hopew this helps.........

The reindeer food I make with my children isn't edible, but we throw it out on our lawn on Christmas Eve for the reindeer.  We just use plain Quaker Oats, the knid in the big cylinder container, unpopped popping corn, not the microwave kind, and different colors of glitter.  We mix it all up and throw a couple handfulls out on the lawn before the kids go to bed on Christmas Eve.  The glitter looks really preety under the moon light.
