Holly Cookies

The kids love these cute little holly cookies- anything gooey and green! Their flavor is reminiscent of rice krispie treats.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup butter
30 large marshmallows
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 teaspoons green food coloring
3 1/2 cups corn flakes
red cinnamon candies

Directions:

1. Melt butter and marshmallows, stirring constantly. Add vanilla and food coloring. Mix in corn flakes. Grease a spoon and drop spoonfuls of mixture on greased cookie sheet, or vegetable oil sprayed wax paper. Place 3 red cinnamon candies on each bunch of "holly," pressing slightly so that they stick.

2. Let sit until they have hardened.

      I’m really sorry about that- all has been fixed. This was an old recipe that had not been re-formatted. All is good now.

    When I added the vanilla and food coloring the consistency of the marshmallow/butter mixture thinned and they don’t seem to be holding up very well…Any advice?

      I’m not sure- did they end up setting after they cooled?

    The recipee calls for large marshmallows. This should say campfire marshmallows. I bought jumbo marshmallows on an unfulfilled quest for the ever elusive large marshmallows. This was incorrect. Be forewarned.

      I’m familiar with mini marshmallows and large (regular-sized marshmallows). I believe the jumbo marshmallows that they just started marketing in recent years are for S’mores.
