Reindeer Food for Santa's Reindeer; A Gift For Kids To Give

reindeerThis week we’re going to talk about reindeer food. What do you leave out for Santa’s reindeer on Christmas Eve? I usually leave a couple of carrots near Santa’s milk and cookies for him to give to the reindeer when he returns to the sleigh.

I’ve been thinking this over and the reindeer must be getting very tired of carrots. So I thought about what else reindeer might like to eat and I came up with a recipe. I also thought that children might like to eat some sort of reindeer Christmas treat. The following recipes are what I came up with.

Reindeer Food; What you will need:

  • 2 cups of oatmeal
  • ¼ cup brown sugar (if you don't have brown sugar, you may substitute white, however, brown is better for the reindeer.)
  • ½ cup carrots, finely diced
  • 2 tablespoons of cake sprinkles
  • Water

    What to do:

  • Mix all the ingredients together in a medium sized mixing bowl.
  • Add water a bit at a time and mix with your hands. When the mixture is crumbly, you are finished.
  • On Christmas Eve, spread the mixture across the front lawn for Santa’s reindeer.

    They will be able to have their snack while Santa is putting your gifts under the tree and enjoying his milk and cookies. The oats in the recipe will give Santa's reindeer lots of energy for their trip.

    Now for a snack for the good girls and boys on Santa’s list. This is fun and you will enjoy both making and eating these delicious muffins.

    Reindeer Muffins; What you will need:

  • 1 package of oatmeal muffin mix
  • ¼ cup of shredded carrots (be sure and shred them finely)
  • 2 chocolate chips (raisins can be substituted) for each muffin
  • chocolate icing
  • maraschino cherry for each muffin
  • red licorice

    What to do:

  • Make muffin mix according to the package directions
  • Add ¼ cup of shredded carrots
  • Bake according to package directions.
  • When muffins are done, remove them from the oven and let cool.
  • Ice with chocolate frosting. Add a cherry for the nose, chocolate chips or raisins for the eyes and 2 small pieces of red licorice for the antlers. Delicious!!!
