Reindeer Pellets

Preparation:  20-40 minutes

Serves: Depends on how hungry you are.  Makes 2 to 3 dozen


  • 14 oz jar creamy peanut butter 

  • 14 oz powdered sugar
  • 8-10 oz. Nestle Semi Sweet morsels 
  1. Sift powdered sugar so there are no little snowballs
  2. In a mixing bowl, mix equal parts (more or less) peanut butter and sugar until you have a dough like mixture.
  3. Roll into little balls and place on wax paper
  4. Melt chocolate chips in something wide enough to roll your little balls around in.  Easiest method?  1 minute in the microwave, then 10-30 seconds at a time until consistency is thin enough to roll a ball around in. 
  5. Cover the ball in chocolate.  I use a spoon to kinda flick it around.  Dipping, pouring, and submerging all have less desirable effects.  The spoon is handy because boiling hot chocolate isnt pleasant on either tongues or fingers.  I'm just saying.

Other stuff you'll want to have around: 

  • Mixing bowl

  • Big spoon to mix

  • Smaller spoon to dip

  • wax paper

  • something to melt chocolate in, i.e. pot, pan, ceramic bowl, nuclear reactor.
Things I dont recommend using:

  • Plastic bowl or spoon for chocolate

  • Metal in the microwave

  • The aforementioned nuclear reactor

  • Crunchy is not as smooth, but gives more of a corn kernel effect.

  • Dusting the reindeer pellets with powdered sugar gives them a proper, festive, snowy apppearance.
