A recipe from kids, for kids… Reindeer Poop! And peanut butter flavoured? What’s not to love? Kids will love forming their dough into reindeer poop!


  • 3oz (¼ cup + 2 tbsp) unsalted butter, softened
  • ¾ cup peanut butter
  • 8oz icing (confectioners’) sugar
  • 1½-2 cups dark chocolate chips (or dark chocolate chopped into small chunks)
  • 1 tsp shortening


  1. Add the butter, peanut butter into a mixing bowl and beat until combined.
  2. Sift the icing (confectioners’) sugar and add a little at a time until incorporated and beat until a dough forms.
  3. Divide into two balls and place each in a freezer bag or cover with plastic wrap. Flatten and place in the freezer for a max of 15 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, melt the chocolate in the microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring between each until melted and smooth. Add the shortening and stir until melted.
  5. Remove half the dough from the freezer and roll into imperfect balls or sausages (I know it’s hard peeps, but think reindeer poop! 😉 ) Working quickly, did the peanut butter balls until coated allowing excess chocolate to drip off and place on a silicone baking mat or parchment paper. Repeat with remaining dough.
  6. Chill in the fridge until set and hard and serve.
