It’s time for another silly stocking filler idea – bags of reindeer poop! They go hand in hand with yesterday’s Snowman Poop! Once again, they’re really quick and easy to put together, and of course, it’s not really poop – I used chocolate covered malt balls – they can be crushed up and sprinkled over ice cream. Or you could add a big dollop of whipped cream to some hot chocolate and add the crushed chocolate to that for a real chocolatey treat!
To make the bags of Reindeer Poop, you will need some clear plastic/cellophane food bags (6″/15cm wide), chocolate covered malt balls (that’s Maltesers for us in the UK, and I believe they’re called Whoppers in the US), and my free printable labels. I’ve included, as always, a list of things you might need for this quick and easy stocking filler, further down the page. This post contains Amazon Affiliate links. If you followed the link then made a purchase, a small percentage of the sale price would be paid to this blog. It doesn’t cost you anything and it helps keep the lights on over here!
- Print the Reindeer Poop labels onto thick white paper or thin white card.
- Cut out and fold in half.
- Fill a 6”/15cm wide cellophane food bag with the Maltesers/Whoppers/Chocolate Malt Balls.
- Fold the open end of the bag over to “seal” it, then place the folded label on top.
- Staple into place on each end of the label – making sure you go through the plastic bag so that everything stays in place.
The back of the label comes with three different messages – Season’s Greetings, Happy Holidays, and Merry Christmas – as well as space to write who the snowman poop is to and from.
