Holiday Cheer - Reindeer Chow

First, we have a recipe for Santa's reindeer - food to help them fly all night and also to help them find your house. Then there's a recipe to make hyper those who are waiting for Santa.....

Reindeer Food


1 cup rolled oats
¼ cup sugar
3 tbsp red colored sugar
3 tbsp green colored sugar


Mix together and place in a plastic bag. Sprinkle on the lawn on Christmas Eve. The smell of the oats and the glitter of the sugar will help the Santa’s reindeer find YOUR HOME!

Reindeer Chow

 1 stick butter
1 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup peanut butter
7 cups Rice Chex cereal
2 cups powdered sugar


Melt the butter, chocolate chips, and peanut butter in a pan over medium; stirring to blend. Put cereal in a large bowl and add mixture. Mix well. Add powder sugar and stir until well coated. Keep in a sealed container.

The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow,
Gave the lustre of midday to objects below,
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But a miniature sleigh, and eight tiny reindeer.
- Clement Moore, The Night Before Christmas

I've been wanting to try the Reindeer Chow for some time; thanks for the recipe to remind me.

Hi, Robyn. I haven't made this for this year yet. But I did make it last year. It's really good. We also made the Reindeer Food and put it out so the reindeer could find our house and lead Santa's here.
