  • Melt margarine in a large saucepan over medium-low heat; stir marshmallows into melted margarine until mixture is smooth. Mix green food coloring into marshmallow mixture until color is dark green.

  • Gently stir regular and sugar-frosted corn flakes into marshmallow mixture until coated. Working quickly, drop the warm corn flakes mixture onto prepared waxed paper by tablespoon. Grease your fingers with butter and gently shape the mixture into green wreath-shaped forms. Decorate wreaths with cinnamon candies while still warm. Set wreaths aside to cool and set.

Delicious and very sweet. But it s really hard to form a wreath when the stuff is sticking to your fingers AND it s hot!? Yes I buttered my fingers but that just didn t do it. So instead of wreathes I now have the rare and elusive phoenix nest which has three little red hot eggs.? I would not recommend meeting making this with children. It would make a complete and utter disastrous mess. Unless of course you don t mind having sticky Green marshmallow goo everywhere including their hair.? Read More
