Holly Cookies

I know it is early, but I want to post this early so you have time to perfect your skills, and gain weight!!! These look difficult, but really are simple. I have been making them since I was 10, I'm almost 49!

Sorry, I forgot to get an ingredient picture.

1 stick butter
30 Large Marshmallows
1/2 tsp Vanilla
Green food coloring - to your appeal!
3 cups Cornflakes, NOT frosted
Red hot candies

WAX paper

In a double boiler, melt the butter, add the marshmallows, stir frequently. When they are melted, add the vanilla and Green food coloring.

It should look like this!
Add the corn flakes, and gently stir to coat them in the green. Reduce heat slightly, don't want to cook flakes!

Drop by teaspoonfuls onto wax paper, put 3 Red hot candies onto the 'Holly' let cool.

You should end up with this!

Yield: depending on the size of cookie between 60-80 cookies!

Helpful hints:

I keep a small cup of water on the stove and dip spoons into the water between each cookie. Keeps the goo from sticking!

Stir the flake mixture every once in awhile, keeps recoating the flakes, and keeps the mixture evenly warmed.

Helps to have an extra pair of hands for the red hot candies, great job for a child!

After a few hrs take a table knife and loosen from the wax paper and put into a storage container with wax paper between layers of cookies.

These are very addicting!
