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