It’s officially holiday baking season. I love baking and am always on the hunt of a treat that can feed a lot of people, is easy, and is easy on the budget. Enter in Reindeer Poop. Reindeer Poop are also know as Puppy Chow, and Muddy Buddies. I followed the Muddy Buddies™ found on the Chex Cereal website. The only change I made was to add 1 teaspoon of peppermint extract and 10 crushed up candy canes. If you don’t have peppermint extract no biggie.
Follow the instructions, but before you add the powdered sugar add the crushed up candy canes.
- Add half the powdered sugar, shake, and then add the rest.
- I make mine in a two gallon zip lock bag. It makes clean-up a breeze.
- I usually add extra powdered sugar so that the Reindeer poop is a bright white color.
Muddy Buddies are super easy to change to whatever “theme” you please. Add candy corn and you have ghost turds, add mint for Saint Patrick’s day, or pink, and red candy for Valentine’s Day. The possibilities are endless.
