The next time your kids enjoy a "snow day," spend part of it making these quick and easy cookies.


Makes about 2 dozen.

Recipe from

Gooseberry Patch


3 1/2 cups corn flake cereal
30 regular-size marshmallows
1/2 cup margarine
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 teaspoons green food coloring
red cinnamon candies or maraschino cherries


Spread corn flake cereal on a baking sheet. Heat marshmallows, margarine, vanilla and food coloring in a double boiler until marshmallows melt. Carefully pour marshmallow mixture over cereal. Blend well and, as mixture cools, spoon 2 tablespoons of mixture onto wax paper. Form cereal mixture into a wreath shape. Arrange candies on top of each wreath to resemble holly berries. Allow wreaths to set up.
