It's been a tradition in our family that we all make our "specialty" goodies for Christmas. One of my sister's treats that we all love are her Christmas tree wreaths made from corn flakes and marshmallows. Well, this year she brought the ingredients to my house so we could "whip them up" when we had a minute. To make a long
1/2 c butter
4 cups miniature marshmallows
6 cups corn flakes, slightly crushed
1/2 tsp vanilla
Cinnamon candies (optional)
Melt butter in a large pan over low heat. Add the marshmallows and stir until they have melted. Stir in vanilla. Remove from heat and stir in corn flakes.
Apply butter to your hands and using a medium size cookie scoop, drop them on parchment or wax paper. I used my finger to push the top in so it would shape a heart. The recipe made about 20-24 hearts, depending on the size you make them, mine starting getting bigger toward the end! They were delicious, too bad we ate them before the children came over!! Guess I'll have to make some more! Enjoy!
Love and peace,
