Christmas Holly Candy

Comment on this recipe

This will make several "holly" depending on the size of your mound. They will keep well in a tin or Rubbermaid container.

Ingredients

30 large marshmallows
1 stick butter
1-1/2 teaspoons green food coloring
3 cups cornflakes
1 package red cinnamon dots

Instructions

Melt marshmallow and butter over medium heat, constantly stirring. Add the food coloring. Stir in the cornflakes. On a cookie sheet, drop by tablespoons in small mounds. On each holly mound, place 3 or 4 red cinnamon dots to make it look like holly berries. Allow to cool, then place into tins; covering each layer with wax paper.
