This Christmas coal candy looks too sweet to give to those on your naughty list, but let's face it, we all know somebody who deserves a lump of the black stuff in their stocking. What better way is there to hint to a friend or family member that they have been bad this year than to give them a burlap sac full of the tasty charcoal candy? And, the Sprinkle Bakes food blog, written by Heather Baird, breaks down the recipe for you so you can kill your frenemies with kindness.

The food blog describes this tasty treat as being "sweet and sugary with an unexpected crumbly texture." So if the recipient of this Christmas coal candy doesn't get the subtle passive-aggressive message you're sending, then at least you can take your frustrations out on the treat itself as it requires you to smash it to pieces during the baking process.
