Making gifts for the Holidays? Try this!

Lump of Coal cookies

One 16 oz package of Oreo Cookies crushed fine
5 cups large marshmallows
4 tablespoons butter


This works best on parchment but a well-buttered (bottom and sides) 8X8 inch baking pan should do the trick too
In the bowl of a food processor fitted with the metal blade, pulse Oreos until ground. An alternative would be a Ziploc bag, a rolling pin, and some frustration to vent. 🙂 In a large, microwave safe bowl, melt butter and marshmallows in the microwave until puffy, about 1½ – 2 minutes in my microwave. (Watch carefully…remember that Sta-Puff Marshmallow Man from Ghostbusters? Well, there’s a chance you’ll have him in your microwave if you let them puff too much)
With a buttered spoon, stir in ground Oreo Cookies until combined. Dump into your buttered pan and using a piece of wax paper or foil on top, press mixture flat and even. Let sit for at least 10 minutes. Cut into chunks of “coal” and serve.

    Merry Christmas! My favorite holiday cookie is Chocolate Mint Thumb Cookies. They taste like the York peppermint patties and are so easy to make. Your Coal cookies look easier to make than mine. I love the idea of giving Lumps of coal to my adult friends. I’m gonna make these for gifts. Have a wonderful Christmas. Thanks for the recipe and the chance to win.
