Reindeer Poop

Enjoy! Thank you Sam and Lydia Pourciau at SCOUTS-L Dec.24/00


1/2 c. butter
2 c. sugar
1/2 c. milk
2 tsp. cocoa
1/2 c. peanut butter
3 c. oatmeal (not instant)
1/2 c. chopped nuts - optional

Mix butter, sugar, milk, cocoa together in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly, boil for 1 minute. Remove from heat and stir in remaining ingredients. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto wax paper and let harden. They will set up in about 30-60 minutes. They will keep for several days without refrigeration or up to 2 weeks in refrigerator and 2-3 months in freezer.

Put in zip lock bag and attach the following note: I woke up with such a scare when I heard Santa Call "Now dash away, dash away, dash away all!" I ran to the lawn and in the snow white drifts those nasty reindeer left these "little gifts"

I got an old shovel and started to scoop neat little piles of "Reindeer Poop!" But to throw them away, seemed such a a waste! so I saved them, thinking- you might like a taste

As I finished my task, which took quite a while Old Santa passed by and he sheepishly smiled. And I heard him exclaim as he was in the sky "Well they're not potty trained, but at least they can fly!"
