30 marshmellows 3 1/2 c. cornflakes
1/4 tsp. (or more) green food coloring red cinnamon candies

Melt butter & marshmellows over low heat, or in microwave (“MW”) 2 min.on medium. Remove from heat; add coloring, vanilla and cornflakes. Blend thoroughly. While still warm drop from teaspoon onto ungreased cookie sheet or foil. Shape into wreaths w/ fingers dipped in cold water (lightly). Decorate w/ cinnamon candies (three/wreath looks good if wreaths aren't too) Makes 25-30 when doubled. Best to make 2 batches rather than doubling ingredients.

With MW, melt butter on med. or 70 % power. Add marshmellows and MW until soltened (approx. 2 min.) med 70 % power Stir. and continue recipe.
