Ingredients

  • 1 stick of butter (1/2 cup)
  • 30 large marshmallows
  • 6 teaspoons drops of green gel food coloring or 1 and 1/4 liquid green food coloring
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 5 cups cornflakes
  • 1 bottle of red hot candies or 1/2 cup red candy coated chocolates such as mini M&M's
  • cooking spray

Instructions

  • Line a sheet pan with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  • Place the marshmallows and butter in a large bowl. Microwave in 30 second increments until melted.
  • Add the green food coloring and vanilla; stir until the marshmallow mixture is smooth.
  • Add the cornflakes to the bowl and gently stir to coat the cereal evenly with the marshmallow mixture.
  • Pack the mixture into a greased 1/4 cup measuring cup and turn out onto the sheet pan. Use your fingers to make a hole in the middle to form a wreath shape and decorate with red candies. It's easiest to form the wreath holes if your fingers are damp or coated in cooking spray.
  • Cool completely until firm and serve.
