Ready for a super easy, no-bake dessert perfect for all those not-so-naughty people in your life? These cookies and cream lumps of coal are your answer. They take just three ingredients, about 20 minutes of time, and the will power not to eat them all before you serve them.
I was inspired by these cookies and cream bars that look so rad in bar form. Shaping them into lumps of coal just seemed like the perfect mashup for the holidays.
Texture-wise, these are super chewy, sort of like softer Rice Krispy treats. If anyone is afraid to try one, just give them that comparison and they’ll chill out. I mean, they are brown mystery lumps, so I get it. I also didn’t expect to ever use the term “mystery lumps.”
- One 16 oz package of sandwich cookies like Oreo
- 5 cups large or mini marshmallows
- 4 Tbsp butter
- In a food processor, crush cookies into fine crumbs and set aside.
- In a large saucepan, melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until melted. Remove from heat.
- Lay out a piece of parchment on a cookie sheet.
- Stir in ground cookies until combined.
- Working quickly before it hardens, roll mixture into small balls with your hands and place onto parchment.
- Let your balls of "coal" set for about ten minutes and serve.
- I store these in the refrigerator until ready to use, then bring to room temperature when it's time to serve.
