Cornflake Wreaths

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
  • 30 large marshmallows (a 10-ounce bag contains 38 to 40)
  • 1 teaspoon green food color
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 cups cornflakes cereal
  • Red-hot cinnamon candies, for decorating

In a medium saucepan, melt butter and marshmallows over medium-low heat, stirring constantly.  Once melted, remove from heat and stir in 1 teaspoon food color and the vanilla. Add the cornflakes; stir until coated evenly.  Drop mixture, 1 tablespoon at a time, onto wax paper or parchment paper. Decorate with candies. Let stand 30 minutes, or until cool.
