Reindeer Food Recipe for Christmas Eve Preparation

Posted under Christmas

Santa’s reindeers sometimes need a little guidance on the landing strip approach to our house.
A little bit of shiny glitter sugar or sparkles should do the trick, don’t you think?
And I’m sure they must be hungry too, so let’s make them some sparkly reindeer food.
This is a job for helpful children, as you can see.
To make reindeer food, that is also delicious for the local bird life, simply mix together:
1 cup of oats
1/2 cup of shredded coconut
1 cup of rice bubbles
1 cup of sunflower seeds
1 bag of hundreds and thousands
some sugar glitter from cake decorating shops
any kind of pretty sugar sprinkles you can find
Give it a good stir.
Purchase some cookie bags (I used size one) from your local craft shop or cake decorating store.
Print off a little recipe or verse to put in the bag.
Mine says:
Sprinkle on the lawn at night
The moon will make it sparkle bright
As Santa’s reindeer fly and roam
This will guide them to your home!
Scoop the reindeer mix into the bag.
Then tie it all up with a pretty ribbon and a tag.
Reindeer food makes a lovely sharing gift for your friends and neighbour’s children too.
Not long now until you can sprinkle this on the grass in preparation for a Santa and reindeer visit.
I wonder if Rudolph will be leading the pack this year?

    I’m going to pin this for my daughter to give to her friends next year. We made her friends chocolate spoons today.

    I love chocolate spoons. I want to make those too. I saw some ice-cream spoons too, that you can stir into coffee or tea or irish coffee or maybe even a warm egg nog… Yummo.

    you might call them sprinkles..? It’s those little tiny rainbow sugar balls you use as cake decorations. You can get them in little ‘lines’ (what we call sprinkles) and in all kinds of shapes and sizes now too but traditionally the weeny balls are what we call hundreds and thousands. In Australia, a common (retro but still popular) party food is fairy bread- white bread sklices covered in butter and these rainbow balls. so 70′s!
