Tye Lombardi at The Necro Nom-Nom-Nomicon (previously at Neatorama) shares a recipe for coal that you'll want to find in your Christmas stocking, because it's a sweet treat!
One of the highlights of my holiday season is the annual visit from my good friend Krampus. While you mortals are eagerly awaiting the big guy in his red suit, I prefer his much shaggier, much darker companion.
We have spent many a long winter night munching on penta-graham cookies and sipping hot cinnamon and orange tea sweetened with these inky black lumps of sweet indulgence.
For many people, getting coal is a symbol you’ve been naughty, but for us denizens of hell, it’s how we sweeten all our drinks!
The ingredients are things you have around anyway, except for possibly the black food coloring. Try this recipe out any time, and you just might want to make plenty to give to your naughty and nice friends next year. -Thanks, hearsetrax!
