I woke up with such scare when I heard Santa call... "Now dash away, dash away, dash away all!" I ran to the lawn and in the snowy white drifts, those nasty reindeer had left "little gifts".
I got an old shovel and started to scoop, neat little piles of "Reindeer Poop!" But to throw them away, seemed such a waste, so I saved them, thinking-you might like a taste!
As I finished my task, which took quite awhile. Old Santa, passed by and he sheepishly smiled. And I heard him exclaim as he was in the sky... "Well they're not potty trained, but at least they can fly!"

These are really good but I am somewhat confused. It seems like there is not enough chocolate in the recipe. I have found other recipes that call for 2 tablespoons of cocoa.

Despite the name, these chocolate reindeer cookies are great. I prepared and packaged them for my daughters Christmas Cookie fundraiser at school. I renamed them "Reindeer Bites" - obviously leaving out the poop reference. She sold them all and the kids loved them! Next time I am going to add in some shredded coconut.
