This year have your loved ones been naughty or nice?  If you answered “naughty” then Santa may just have to leave some coal under the tree.

And, by coal, I mean this super easy candy coal that can be made in under 15 minutes!

Santa's Coal Candy – an easy 3 ingredient recipe that’s ready in under 15 minutes I love how simple this Santa’s Coal Candy recipe is.  It’s definitely one of my favorite easy Christmas recipes.  Not only does it look authentic, but it tastes great too!  And, because you really don’t need to be precise in how you form the lumps of coal, it’s a great recipe to have the kids help with.

You can easily package a few pieces of coal in a clear cello bag or include it on your cookie trays.  Either way, you family and friends will love it. Try with these cute Cupid Hot Chocolate Bombs.
