Some of you may have seen these before. I made them last year and they're pretty good!


1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup peanut butter
2 cups granulated sugar
3 cups oatmeal, not instant
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)
2 teaspoons cocoa

Mix butter, sugar, milk and cocoa together in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly; boil for 1 minute. Remove from heat and stir in remaining ingredients. Drop by teaspoonful (larger or smaller as desired) onto wax paper and let harden. They will set up in about 30-60 minutes. These will keep for several days without refrigerating, up to 2 weeks refrigerated, 2-3 months frozen. Pack into zipper sandwich bags and attach the following note to each bag:

Gourmet Reindeer Poops

I woke up with such scare when I heard Santa call...
"Now dash away, dash away, dash away all!"
I ran to the lawn and in the snowy white drifts,
those nasty reindeer had left "little gifts".

I got an old shovel and started to scoop,
neat little piles of "Reindeer Poop!"
But to throw them away, seemed such a waste,
so I saved them, thinking you might like a taste!

As I finished my task, which took quite awhile,
Old Santa passed by, and he sheepishly smiled.
And I heard him exclaim as he was in the sky...
"Well, they're not potty trained, but at least they can fly!"

So then my hubby is sitting over on the couch eating a snack....she decides she wants some....well it's deer I told her what it was and that she probably wouldn't like it(she's 3)....she got really quiet for a minute, then looked at me and he eating Rudolph????? [Big Grin] She'll just love thinking she's eating reindeer poop.....and I'll love telling her that.... [Razz]

Don't forget to be kind to strangers. For some who have
done this have entertained angels without realizing it.

Thanks Corgie for the poop recipe, I've never seen them before and I havent been on for while and just dropped in here to check out a few recipes and there was yours. I had a bunch of baking to do for a church bake sale so I made up eight little trays of the with the poem taped on top. To soften it for a "church function" I named it Gourmet Reindeer Poo. Everyone got a good laugh out of them. Thanks Again!
