Lumps of Coal – Naughty, and Nice.

Do you know someone who warrants a lump of coal in their stocking, albeit a delicious one? Here’s the recipe you need, originally from the US.  Easy, simple and effective!


5 cups of white marshmallows (around 300g)

4 tbsp (about 60g) of unsalted butter

1 packet of Oreos (154g)


  • Grease an 8″ square tin or dish
  • In a food processor, blitz the Oreos until ground to a fine crumb – if you don’t own a food processor, you could smash them up with a rolling pin in a bag but the end result will be a bit more craggy!
  • In a large bowl, melt the marshmallows and butter together in the microwave – mine took about 2 minutes, checked halfway
  • Beat the melted marshmallows and butter until completely mixed, then quickly add the Oreo crumbs and fully combine – it will get very stiff, very quickly
  • Press the mix into your greased tin and chill until completely set, then chop into 1.5″ squares – you could do them bigger but they’re quite rich
  • Bag or box to give as gifts – ideally they should be kept in the fridge but if given in winter when it’s cold they could just be stored in a cool dry place
Ho ho ho!
