Over the years our family has left out many different types of Santa Snacks
Cookies, fruit cake, mince tarts; and of course a drink- milk, water, port or even beer if if was particularly hot.
Somewhere along the line we started leaving out treats for the reindeer too. Fair enough, after all they do most of the work, don't they! There's been carrots, apples, oats, oats mixed with glitter, and whatever else was wilting in the bottom of the crisper drawer that mummy thought she wouldn't miss.
Now, it only stands to reason that if food goes in, Something Else must come out. If the Easter Bunny poops out Jelly Beans, then surely something just as delicious must be produced from Reindeer?
After much thought and consultation with Santa, this recipe is pretty close to the real deal. Santa was only prepared to go so far in the interest of the Culinary Arts, and delegated the job of tasting to one of the Elves. He hopes you like it, because it took him hours of following the reindeer to get the scoop on their poop!
1 block (100gm) Lindt chocolate- 70% and over are lactose free
3/4 cup gf Mini Marshmallows
3/4 cup shredded Coconut
1/2 cup Glace Cherries
good pinch Salt
Melt the chocolate over hot water, or in the microwave
Toss in everything else
Now stir, stir, stir until it's all coated in chocolate
Place Tablespoons of the mixture on a parchment lined tray and set aside to cool in the fridge or cool place
When set, dish these up as little treats and enjoy telling your guests where they came from!
So Dear Reader, only 6 Sleeps to go to the Big Day!!! Are you ready yet, or do you have a Last-Minute-List that's still a mile long?
This is fabulous, Rebecca, and fancy you being in such good communication with Santa that you've been able to share with us, Reindeer poo! I've been thinking of making reindeer poo - we might give this a go today as I have a dinner party to go to tonight and I think they would love this xxReplyDelete
I'm glad you could share it with your friends Charlie, it sounds like you had a great time. Santa and I are very close actually, I'm permanently on the Nice list :) xoxDelete
Bahahhhaa!!! What goes in must come out? :P I've bought bear poop chocolates as gifts and it does make me giggle. I bet Santa might wake up the household with his giggling if he was left these :PReplyDelete
I think so too Lorraine! Bear poops must be a bit bigger than reindeer ones, and a bit chunkier! :P xDelete
How cute is this idea! Depending upon the age of the children, though, these should come with a disclaimer of some sort. "Although Santa's reindeer poo is edible, you shouldn't eat ... "ReplyDelete
I agree, that certainly would be a good idea! I did play around with the idea of chocolate covered nuts and raisons, but thought that was probably a bit too close to reality for comfort :)Delete
Reindeer poop. I think this is a winner but you'll need some sort of pooper scooper to dish them out with. :)ReplyDelete
:) That would certainly put some people off, but I guess that means more for me Maureen!Delete
LOL!!! So funny!!ReplyDelete
What a funny idea!!
I like to keep my family on their toes, they never know what's next! :)Delete
Ha love raindeer poor specially when it comes from Rudolf!!. looks deliciousReplyDelete
I might have to add red smarties if it was from Rudolf! :) xoxDelete
