Christmas Cookie Edition: Christmas Wreaths

1/2 c. unsalted butter
30 large marshmallows (3 cups)
1 1/2 t. green food coloring
1 t. vanilla extract
4 c. corn flakes
2 T. cinnamon red hots
non-stick spray

Coat a large stock pot with non-stick spray. Melt butter over low heat. Add in marshmallows and melt them over low heat, stirring constantly until smooth. Remove from heat and add in food coloring and vanilla.

Add in corn flakes and stir constantly until blended. With lightly greased fingers or a tablespoon, arrange corn flakes mixture into a small donut shape–a wreath with a hole in the center–on waxed paper. Before they cool, decorate with red hots (4-5 each wreath). May also attach red hots with a small dab of your favorite icing.  Great for giving on a platter and adding the Christmas cookie recipe as a tag.
