Melt butter and add marshmallows in a large saucepan. Add black food coloring and mix in well. Add rice cereal and stir until blended. Drop by small spoonfuls onto waxed or parchment paper. Make different shapes and sizes. Cool.

Place 3-5 of them into a small cellophane or ziptop bag and tie with ribbon.

And Santa even checked his list twice.
So all the way from the cold North Pole
all you’re getting is a bag of coal.”
