Looking for ideas for a small and funny gift for a friend, coworker, or neighbor? Or do you need inspiration for a party favor for a holiday party? Well this year I created a sweet treat that also works as a gag gift, so it is fun but still a treat! They are lumps of "coal" straight from Santa's Workshop! Each tag has Santa's official postage stamp and logo, and of course the "Naughty" box is checked! These will surely put a smile on those who receive them! The best part of these treats is that they are SUPER easy to make and I am offering the tags as a FREEBIE to my readers!
Chocolate or Candy Melts
Oreos (standard size or mini)
Step 1: In a gallon size plastic storage bag place several Oreos inside. Using the backside of a large spoon, crush the Oreos. You can also crush the Oreos using a food processor.
Step 2: Melt the chocolate or candy melts in a dish or coffee mug. Stir frequently.
Step 3: Take a toothpick and insert it into a marshmallow then dip 3/4 of the marshmallow into the chocolate. Let the excess chocolate drip off.
Step 4: Immediately after dipping the marshmallow into chocolate, roll the marshmallow in the crushed Oreos and cover as much surface as you can.
(If you want to have plain chocolate covered marshmallows, eliminate this step)
Step 5: Place on a tray covered with wax paper and place into the refrigerator to harden for 3 to 5 minutes.
Step 6: Take the toothpick out of the side with the exposed marshmallow and dip into the chocolate and then roll into the crushed Oreos. Place into fridge and let harden.
Step 7: Put "coal" into the plastic bags and tie tags with ribbon.
Now they are ready for gifting!
Everyone will want to be on the naughty list for this treat!
