Coal Rice Krispies


Coal Rice Krispies


I never knew what to answer when I was young and someone asked me "Have you been naughty or nice?"

I obviously knew I couldn't say that I was naughty. If I revealed this, who in their right mind would give me presents? But then again, I couldn't say that I was nice, because then I would seem like a bragging brat that thought highly of themselves.

I remember one year, my mom gave me underwear that said "more naughty than nice" on it. This is where I just got really confused. If you are giving me a gift, how have I been naughty?

Also, how appropriate is this gift? Is it something a mother should be giving her daughter? Maybe my mind is constantly in the gutter. And hence, I deserve coal.

I am getting all up in the Christmas spirit with these coal rice krispies. I bought some black food color gel a while ago in a kit of 6, and when I saw it I thought "now what will I do with black food coloring?" I mean, when you want to color your cookies or candies or cakes, it is rare that you would reach for black.

But I have found the perfect use for them. And I think the entire bottle will be done by the end of the holidays.

When my boyfriend first saw these in the kitchen, he thought they look disgusting. He told me that he wasn't naughty, and can I please just make something normal for a change?

Haha. As if.

But when he tried them, I kid you not, he almost ate the entire batch. They were that addicting. I promise you, if you make these in your house, everyone will say that they were naughty this year.

  14. This is such a great and creative idea! I imagine you could use activated charcoal powder if you wanted to avoid the food coloring.
