Chocolate Reindeer Poop - Easy Christmas Gift for School Friends

Chocolate Reindeer Poo - edible fun gift

We had some fun making these last night ready for Ruby to hand out to all her little class mates.  Granted, it might not be the most sophisticated present, but show me a 5 year old who doesn't find poo hilarious...

It's a very thrifty gift - one and a half large bars of chocolate and about half a box of rice crispies has done the whole class of 30.

These are basically 'droppings' of rice crispie cakes - I'm sure I don't need to tell you how to make them...

OK then.  Break up chocolate into small pieces, melt in a bowl over a pan of water on the stove.  Ruby helped to do this, but obviously, be careful with the heat.  Then stir in rice crispies and a few handfuls of raisins (lets make it a little bit healthy!) and keep stirring until they are all coated in chocolate.

Dollop little spoonfuls onto a sheet of greaseproof paper and leave to cool and set.

I printed off these tags on card, feel free to scale this image to size and use it.  The poop was then scooped into little cellophane bags and stapled shut with the labels.


I've checked with the teacher for allergies, but it's worth keeping hold of the chocolate bar wrapper and cereal box just to advise parents.

Happy Christmas!
