Lumps of Coal – Christmas Making and Baking

This recipe made its rounds on Facebook last December.  When I made it last year, the boys absolutely loved it.

Today I made a batch, and the Wee One told me it was as good as last year.  Score!

Stars of the recipe:

  • 1 package of Oreos (or 36 Oreos), crushed
  • 5 c. mini marshmallows
  • 4 Tbsp. butter


  1. Crush Oreos and then place them in a big bowl.
  2. Meanwhile, melt butter and marshmallows in a big pot.
  3. Add the crushed Oreos.
  4. Mix the Oreos and melted butter, and marshmallow mixture until combined.
  5. Place the mixture in an 8 by 8 pan sprayed with cooking spray.  (I sprayed cooking spray on my clean hand before pressing the mixture down.  You can also use a spoon sprayed down with cooking spray.)
  6. Allow the mixture to set for 1/2 hour before cutting it into squares.

Happy Eating,
