Reindeer Fodder

Mmm mmm good! Even if you think this sounds terrible, you must make it and sample it - because you are wrong, it's delicious! The salty peanuts provide just the right counter balance to the sweetness of the chocolate. Enjoy!

Here's what you'll need:
3 1/2 C Captain Crunch (no berries) cereal (it's the only time I buy this)
3 1/2 C Rice Krispies
3 C Dry Roasted Peanuts
2 C miniature marshmallows
2 lbs white chocolate (or almond bark)

Stir the first four ingredients into a large mixing bowl.

Mix all together.

Break the chocolate into 1-inch chunks, and melt it in a double boiler or a heavy saucepan. Stir regularly.

Pour chocolate over the other ingredients, and mix well.

Pour out in a thin-ish layer onto wax paper. Let harden and break into smaller pieces.

Salty, sweet treats are the best! I think I might make some of this up for my family's upcoming Nertz tourney on Christmas Eve day. What do you think, is it really good enough to distract them, so I can get an edge?

I thought this was a recipe to make stuff for Santa's reindeer. I've heard of people sprinkling stuff in their front yards. Have you heard of this, and what does one use? And does it disappear the next AM so the child knows that it got devoured?

Corrie said...

am'n - most definitely! I think the sugar will fry their concentration abilities to a frazzle.

ew - my aunt always leaves a bunch of carrots (w/tops) in the front yard. Without fail, they are nibbled right down to the tops every Christmas Eve.

They also hear Santa's sleigh bells when he passes by their house to see if they're asleep yet.

Papa (my dad) is coming to my house about 9:30 and banging around on the roof....

Lammy said...

um. Yum.

This sounds wonderful--the white chocolate gets me every time.

Corrie said...

That wouldn't work on our roof - I think someone would end up in the ER (hmmm, that would make an interesting episode of that show) there is just too much ice and snow up there and no good surface for stomping on.

But that would be really neat!
