Raccoon Scat Recipe

I got the recipe for the fake raccoon scat we enjoyed at a recent nature event when we played "Who Dung It?" (see post). I know some of you might have a need to make a batch of raccoon scat. :-)


Also, I found a note here that you can use Rasinettes as deer scat. Yum!

Also from this post, "Raccoons are omnivorous, which means they feed on a wide variety of plant and animal foods. What they eat depends on the time of year and what is available, so their scat, which is another word for poop, can vary quite a bit. Their diet can include acorns, corn, wheat and other grains, wild grapes, black cherry, pawpaw, giant ragweed, blackberry, pokeweed, apples, crickets, grasshoppers, earthworms, crayfish, carrion, young turtles, frogs, turtle and bird eggs and, of course, garbage."



Raccoon Scat: A Tasty Outdoor Snack!

3 Tbs butter
1 12 oz bag marshmallows
1 12 oz bag semi-sweet chocolate morsels
10 oz of raisins or craisins (berries)
2 cups crispy rice cereal (insects and crayfish parts)

1. Melt butter over low heat in a large saucepan

2. Add marshmallows and allow to melt, stirring often. Once marshmallows are mostly melted, add chocolate morsels and stir until everything is melted.

3. Add raisins, craisins and cereal to mixture, stir (Amounts are approximate and may need to be adjusted until you get the right consistency.)

4. Use a spoon to scoop out cookies onto waxed paper or cookie sheet

5. Form to look like raccoon scat

6. Allow to cool


Makes approximately 30 yummy cookies!

Very funny, especially the deer scat, since I see it all over my yard these days. It really DOES look like Raisinettes!
