Naughty or Nice?


I saw this fun idea over at eighteen25 and thought I would give it a try!  Black rice krispie treats that look like lumps of coal.  This was so easy.  One tip though...it requires about a container and a half of Wilton food coloring to get it to go from gray to black. 





Then, you just drop the lumps onto wax paper.  I let mine sit overnight to dry.





Here they are all ready to go.  We're off to our annual Santa dinner with friends this evening.  I thought I would take them along...one for each family to take home.





You can get the recipe and the tag HERE.

Those are awesome! I actually picked up a "box of coal" for LB's stocking at Trader Joe's. Need to remember to put it in her stocking. I have no idea what's really in the little box. I'm assuming some kind of candy.

This is so clever. I wish I would have thought to check this out before I bought a few gift cards for my kiddos teachers. I should know to check with you first by now.
