Marshmallow Wreaths

This was a fun idea for the holidays. Bonus being it was quick and easy to make. I found the idea in a book titled Reindeer Crunch and other holiday recipes. It suggested using ribbon to make them look more like wreaths but these barely lasted long enough to cool to the touch in our house. The recipe called for them to be cooked in the microwae but I don't have one so I'm posting the recipe as I did it on the stovetop.

4 tablespoons butter
1 10.5 ounce bag mini marshmallows
3-4 drops green food coloring
3 cups corn flakes
1 cup crisped rice cereal
1/2 cup mini cinnamon candies

Melt butter in a large pot. Add marshmallows and stir until melted. Add food coloring to the marshmallows (I forgot to do this here and added it after I added some cereal so it works both ways) and stir. Add cornflakes and rice cereal to marshmallow mixture and stir until mixture is mixed throughly.

Line a baking sheet with wax paper. Pour the entire mixture onto the baking sheet. Spray your hands with nonstick cooking spray. Divide the cereal mixture into 6-8 equal parts. Shape each part into individual ring shapes. The mixture will be hot.

Press cinnamon candies on top of wreaths.
