Reindeer Poop Holiday Recipe (Homemade Star Crunch Snack)

Don’t let the name of this recipe scare you off.

Reindeer poop is tasty stuff.

Of course my daughters heard the name and wrinkled their little noses as I was rolling the “reindeer poop” into balls. But then of course I explained they’re like a Rice Krispies Treat, only tastier. These snack balls include yummy caramel sauce and melted chocolate chips to give them extra flavor.
