Weekend Cooking: Christmas Cornflake Wreaths
I love to make these at Christmastime because they're simple (albeit a bit messy) to make and they don't require many ingredients.
1/2 c. butter (don't use low fat or tub margarine, too much water content)
32 lg. marshmallows*
1/4 tsp. green food coloring (I always end up using more for the color I want)
1/2 tsp. vanilla
3-1/2 c. cornflakes
Make as rice krispie treats essentially. Melt butter and marshmallows over low heat in saucepan. When melted, add coloring and vanilla. Fold in cornflakes until well coated. Drop on waxed or parchment paper and form into individual wreaths or one big wreath and decorate while mixture is still warm.
10 minis = 1 lg
1c. mini = 10 lg
