Holiday Treats: Holiday Wreaths

So, this is probably the most popular treat in our house. We can plow through an entire recipe in about 2 days. HAHAHA. Did I say 2 days, I meant about 45 minutes. If I'm feeling energetic, I'll actually form them into rounds and add the red hots in cute holly berry bunches. I'm not normally energetic, so they usually end up as Holiday Bushes With Red Hots Randomly Thrown On In No Particular Order. Anyway, here you go:


1/3 c. butter
16 lg. marshmallows
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. green food coloring
2 1/2 c. corn flakes
Red Hots

Melt butter and marshmallows in saucepan. Add vanilla, food coloring, and corn flakes. Coat the flakes well. Drop on wax paper in a wreath shape and drop a red hot on each wreath so it sticks on. Let it set overnight.

**Yes, I am fully aware of the fact that these are two giant wreaths and not even bushes. This was all I had the energy for. They're still delicious. Don't judge.
