Holly Cookies -

One of my Christmas Traditions is Holly Cookies.  They are incredibly easy to make, just need a helper.  They are beautiful looking and taste yummy!  Below is the link to my orginal blog about them, but I'm going to add some new pics!

Melt 1 stick butter, 30 large marshmallows

Sorry, forgot butter in pic!
When marshmallows melted, add 1/2 - 1 tsp Vanilla, stir, then add Green food coloring to your liking.

My makeshift double boiler!
Stir in 4 Cups of Cornflakes.   (pictures show a double batch!)

Stir gently to cover all flakes with mixture.
Use 2 teaspoons to drop clusters onto WAX paper.  Put 3 red hots on each cluster.  good job for a kiddo!

I keep a glass of warm water to dip spoons into between spoonfulls.  Keeps them from getting sticky!

Enjoy! We love them...
