Coal Cookies

 I needed some gifts last year for my friends on the naughty list.  Which means....I had to double this recipe.  I've seen different versions of this treat around, but I found a free printable and tutorial at 1825.
If you have friends that meet these qualifications this year, all you need to do to throw these together is to prepare rice crispie treats as the box requires (usually 4 1/2 c. of the cereal added to 1/4 c butter and 1 10 oz bag of marshmallows that have been melted together on the stove.).  Add black dye...it takes a lot to go from purple to gray to black.  Instead of pressing it flat into a pan and cutting bars, just pull out clumps with a spoon you rub butter around (it'll stick to everything).  Place on wax paper to cool.  You can reshape a bit once it cools.  Bag.  Tag.  Deliver.  Save Santa some time.
