Reindeer poop cookies are an easy, delicious (Really!) dessert that is perfect for the holiday season. Kids will get a kick out of making reindeer poop balls but do not let the name fool you. The mixture of chocolate and rice krispies is a oh so good and perfect way to spend a cold winters night. I have included a cute poem to go along with these cookies if you are wanting a darling way to drop these off to the people you love. Reindeer Poop Recipe and Reindeer Poop Poem Below!
Are you looking for a super easy, super fun, and a “make the kids giggle” cookie recipe this Christmas? Make Reindeer Poop balls, a marshmallow-y, caramel drizzled, Hershey’s chocolate and rice krispie treat that will keep your guests coming back for more- despite the name! You may also swap out the milk chocolate for semi-sweet chocolate or dark chocolate if that is what you prefer or have on hand. If you do not have a parchment mat, you may also use a cookie sheet lined with wax paper. Plus, store your reindeer cookies in an airtight container for a fun gift at Christmas this week! (Mason Jar Gifts anyone!) My kids have also rolled these in powdered sugar to create a white effect and then labeled them snowman poop! These are so delicious, and the kids really enjoy making them. Enjoy!

Here is everything you need to make your reindeer poop cookies. I HATE going to the store, so I love to order my non-perishables from Amazon and save a ton of time. Check and see how these prices compare cause it might just be worth shipping to your house instead of the crowds.

Jingle Jingle Jingle, Is that Santa that I hear?
Up on my roof, he must be really near!
And laying in the white snow, not a present or a bow.
Nope, little Reindeer Droppings neatly all in a row!
