Lump of Coal Krispie Treats

So, when I think of Christmas one of the first things that I think about is the naughty and nice list.  The infamous saying that you'll get presents if you are nice, but you'll get a stocking full of coal if you're naughty.  You know what I'm talking about.

Today, I want to share with you something that is just perfect for those people that didn't quite make the cut for the nice list.  Yes, I'm talking about something for those people that are on the naughty list...or for those folks that you just want to get a rise from.
Like some of the other recipes I've shared with you this week, I first saw the idea for coal floating around on good ol' pinterest.  There are so many variations but I decided to make my own using a combination of rice krispies and Oreos.  Yes, this coal includes milks favorite cookie!

It's so much fun to make and a great recipe to help get the kiddos involved.  From crunching the cookies to stirring the marshmallows, there's something for everyone of all ages.  To give it an even more authentic coal look, just simply plop spoonfuls on a piece of wax paper and allow to set.
You could leave these on a fun Christmas platter and watch them disappear in no time.  Or, for a fun presentation put them in cellophane bags tied with a big bow, a clear "paint type bucket" that could be found at the Container Store or possibly your local craft store.  The options are endless!

This isn't your everyday krispie treat, think cookies and cream meets rice krispie treat.  Coal never tasted so good!  Folks, this is a lump of coal you wouldn't mind finding in your stocking.  Being bad never tasted so good!
