Candy Coal

2 cups sugar
3/4 cup light corn syrup
1/2 tsp. black paste food coloring
1/2 cup water
1 tsp. anise extract

Line 8" square baking pan with foil, extending edges over sides of
pan. Lightly grease foil with butter. Combine sugar, corn syrup and
water into heavy 2-quart saucepan. Stir over medium-low heat until
sugar is dissolved and mixture comes to a boil, being careful not to
splash sugar mixture on side of pan. Carefully clip candy thermometer
to side of pan (do not let bulb touch bottom of pan). Cook about 15
minutes until thermometer registers 290 degrees F., without stirring.
Immediately remove from heat. Stir in anise extract and food
coloring. Pour mixture into prepared pan. Cool completely. Lift candy
out of pan using foil. Place candy between 2 layers of heavy-duty
foil. Pound with mallet to break candy into 1-2" pieces.

Use candy or black jelly beans for coal or even use a charcoal
briquette for the "lump of coal" poems.

Bag of Coal


Now don't get all high and haughty
cause you know you've been naughty.
Being good may have been your goal,
but Santa peaked and you're getting coal!

Lump of Coal

I'm sure being good was your goal
but all you're getting is a lump of coal.
Now please don't get all high and haughty,
cause that's what you get for being naughty!

Grumpy

You don't like the holidays
and are grumpy as a whole,
so you'll probably enjoy
getting this lump of coal!

This project is easy and fast. Add a special touch to a dinner party or cheer someone up with a gift of this treat.
EASY to do.
What You Need


  • Heavy plastic spoons
  • Milk chocolate
  • White chocolate
  • Chocolate sprinkles
  • Colored sugar
  • Wax paper
  • Cello wrap
  • Ribbon


How To Make It


  1. In microwave, melt half of white chocolate in one bowl. Melt half milk chocolate in another bowl (of course you may melt chocolate on stove top).
  2. Dip half of the spoons in white chocolate and dip other half in milk chocolate. Dip them as far as the base of the spoons bowl. Place on waxed paper and let set completely.
  3. When chocolate is set dip the white spoons in milk chocolate, dip milk chocolate spoons in white. Dip only half way up the bowl of the spoon to create a layered effect. Place back on waxed paper to begin setting.
  4. Let chocolate set only partially (about 5 min.) Then gently dip spoons in chocolate sprinkles or colored sugar.
  5. Wrap soon in cello wrap and tie with ribbon. You can add a little tag (i.e. "stir me into your coffee").
