Edible Coal | BLOGMAS DAY 5

So we've got to blogmas day 5 and i'm already feeling tired, and what have we resorted to - lumps of coal?? It's all downhill from here on...
These bitter balls of joy are so simple. Perhaps you could make them with the kids...says someone with no children... However, they look 'great' left on a table in a bowl as a display... and also work as a good pick-me-up... you can tell it's really hard to promote these! If you're curious like I was, then that's a good enough reason to make them, and then leave them in the bottom of someone's stocking...


30g butter
70g marshmallows
60g Rice Krispies
180g dark chocolate
a medium bowlful of cocoa powder (and enough leftover to dust your hands)


1. Melt the butter in a pan.

2. Add the marshmallows and stir until melted.

3. Once melted, add the Rice Krispies and stir in so they are all coated in the marshmallow.

4. Leave to cool slightly and then shaped into uneven balls. You will need to coat your hands in some cocoa powder in order to stop the balls from sticking to you. This part does get very messy!

5. Melt the chocolate in the microwave at 30-second intervals.

6. Dip the coal into the chocolate and place on a tray lined with baking parchment. Leave to them to set a little bit - watch they don't set completely!

7. Once ready, roll them in the cocoa powder in a bowl and serve in whatever container you would like!

And if you're interested...
