Definitely my favorite Christmas cookie, but how can you make these without green food coloring (color the marshmallow mixture before adding the corn flakes)?

If you are in a rush, make one large wreath around the edge of a plate and cluster the red hots. This way guests can slice out large or small portions and avoid the red hots if they so wish. Much prettier with green food color added. At Easter, add yellow food coloring, make nests in the cupcake tins or form on sheet of aluminum foil, or a large one on on a plate. Fill with jelly beans. Perrenial favorite at my house.

We love cornflakes. This is definitely an oldie but a goodie. I did add green food coloring and just a couple of redhots. One trick if it's cooling off too fast is to turn on the oven to 350 degrees while you're mixing up ingredients, then turn off the oven. I popped the muffin tins in the oven for just a minute or two which softened it up just enough to get the red hots to stick. :)

No cookie tray is complete without these cornflake wreaths. We always add a bit of green food coloring for fun.

These are a Christmas tradition. I've made these with my daughter since she was small. She is now making them with her toddler. We add green food coloring to the melted marshmallow mixture before the corn flakes.
