Cornflakes Holiday Wreaths

A brief caveat: a relative made these pretty holiday wreaths. I enjoyed them immensely and asked for the recipe. I have yet to make them myself - but just may this year.

Yield: About 16 wreaths

Ingredients:

1/3 cup margarine
1 (10-ounce) package regular marshmallows (about 40 marshmallows)
1 teaspoon green food coloring*
6 cups cornflakes cereal
Red cinnamon candies**
Vegetable cooking spray

Instructions:

In large saucepan, melt margarine over low heat.
Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted.
Remove from heat, then stir in food coloring.
Add cereal, then stir until well coated.
Using 1/3-cup dry measure coated with vegetable cooking spray, evenly portion warm cereal mixture.***
Using buttered fingers, quickly shape into individual wreaths.
Dot with cinnamon candies.


*If cooking for people with ADD/ADHD issues or others who may react negatively to food dyes, you can leave the food coloring out.
**May alternatively decorate with colorful Christmas sprinkles. As shown in the photo, you can also stick on a red licorice string bow.
***The mixture may also be formed into a single, large wreath.
