1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1/2 to 2 bags marshmallows
6-8 drops green food coloring
1 box (large) Cornflakes
1 bag red hots
Melt the butter and marshmallows as you would for Rice Krispies treats.
Add green food coloring until it is a desirable shade.
Pour entire box of Cornflakes into a large bowl.
Carefully pour entire warm marshmallow mixture over the cornflakes, and using your hands or a spatula, mix until all are evenly coated.
Form into wreaths on plates, one wreath per plate, top with red hots (cinnamon candies).
Let cool and enjoy!
I've made these for years! My kids love that they look just like little Christmas wreaths, (the cornflakes look like holly, because of the green food coloring) and the cinnamon red hots, well, they just top it off! They're very much like the Rice Krispies, but look more Christmasy!
