All this talk about tracking Santa and nary a mention about the reindeers, the magical creatures pulling Santa all around google earth… um, I mean, the globe! Okay, “nary a mention” is not completely accurate: The Naptime Chef did post a recipe for Magic Reindeer Food and I think that Santa just might show up at her house a little early this year for it! So, I’m with her. Forget the norad santa tracker, I say tonight should be about tracking reindeers!
Once they arrive at your house, I’ve got just the chocolatey-peanut buttery treat to reward them for all of their hard work. And just maybe it’ll be a treat for you, too. It is a Bakerella concoction, after all, and when has she ever let us down?
Recipe reprinted with permission from Bakerella
5 cups Crispix Cereal
1 cup peanut butter
12 oz. package of semi-sweet chocolate morsels
1 box confectioner’s sugar
1. Melt chocolate in microwave 1 minute at a time until melted.
2. Add peanut butter to melted chocolate and mix well.
3. In a large bowl (with a snap on lid), add melted chocolate and peanut butter to top of cereal and mix well.
4. Add confectioner’s sugar and cover bowl with lid. Shake well to coat thoroughly.
If you don’t have a bowl with a lid, you can place the coated cereal and confectioner’s sugar in a large ziploc bag and shake well.
[Note from One Hungry Mama: I used Press & Seal Saran Wrap over a bowl that I used to shake in step 4. Worked great.]
