“Reindeer Food” – A Treat for St. Nick’s Helpers

Every year I make “Reindeer Food” for the kids. This recipe was passed down to me and I am passing it on to you just in time for the big day!

You will need:

~Oatmeal that is still whole. Not the stuff from Quaker with all the flavorings and the powder, but the stuff that actually looks like something a reindeer would eat.

~Red and Green Sparkle Sprinkles from the cake section.

Step 1: Mix Sprinkles into the raw oatmeal until you feel it is sparkly enough to attract Reindeer. DO NOT COOK the Oatmeal.

Step 2: Reindeer food should be sprinkled outside the night before Christmas so that the reindeer will hang out a little longer and give St. Nick more time to drop off some extra special gifts.

Optional added Bonus for the kids: Waking up to find a few jingle bells in the yard the next morning.

The Sprinkles are not showing up in the photo for some reason.

The Sparkles are hard to see in the photo, but there are a lot of them! Enjoy and Happy Holidays!
