Christmas Goodies

Green Wreath Cookies

1/3 C. butter
32 lg. marshmallows
1 tsp. green food coloring
1/2 tsp. almond extract
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
4 C. cornflakes
Red cinnamon candies


Melt butter and marshmallows, turn off heat and add coloring and extracts, mix good, then add cornflakes and stir until well coated. Shape into wreaths. Decorate with candy. Allow to dry uncovered at room temperature. Yields 3 1/2 dz.

-My mom usually doubles the recipe and then we make 2 batches. Also, when you are shaping the wreaths it is easier to do it if you coat your hands in butter.

I love the cornflake wreaths!! We have made a recipe very similar to yours in past years and they're really good!
