Reindeer Scotcheroos

All art projects & crafts require adult supervision. This post may contain affiliate links. Read our full disclosure policy.

Art can be found in many forms and mediums. A fun medium for kids to work with is food! This activity can be done with older or younger kids. For older kids, they can have more responsibilities and do the baking. For younger kids I recommend you prepping beforehand by making the Scotcheroos and cutting them into triangles. Once it has been prepped, let the kids do the decorating.

My aunt is an amazing cook and this Scotcheroo Recipe came from her. I took her recipe with her permission and made it into a fun Christmas Food Art project.


1 cup Sugar

1 cup Light Caro

6 cups Rice Krispies

1 cup Peanut Butter


Candy For Face

Scothceroos Directions:

Step 1:

Heat 1 cup sugar and 1 cup light Caro until it just begins to boil. Watch closely so you don't over heat it. Turn heat off and add 1 cup peanut butter and 6 cups of Rice Krispies. Spread mixture onto a 9x14 greased pan.

Tip: Place wax paper or parchment paper over the top of the pan and use your hands to flatten the Scotcheroos while they are still warm.

Step 2:

Combine 1 cup milk chocolate chips and 1 cup butterscotch chips in a microwaveable bowl. Microwave chips for 30 seconds at a time until melted. Stir the chips every 30 seconds. Pour the frosting over the Scotcheroos. Cool completely.

Reindeer Assembly

Step 1:

After the Scotcheroos have cooled, remove from pan and cut into 12 triangles. I did this by trimming off the edges. Cut the Scotcheroos in half long way. Then cut the triangles from the two long strips of Scotcheroos.

Step 2:

Prepare the antlers by cutting tiny triangles along one side of the Swedish Fish.

Step 3:

Using the decorative icing, glue a red Mint M&M to the bottom point of the triangle. Then attach the antlers to the top and attach white Mint M&M's in the center and then the Candy Eyeballs on top of the white Mint M&M's.
