I made these every year when my kids were small. This year, my daughter resurrected the recipe for our holiday cookie trays. This recipe brings back lots of memories for us.

This is a great tasting and eye pleasing treat. I found a few of these recipes so I compared them all and came up with using 1/2 cup butter (one stick), 34 large marshmallows, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla, 4 1/2 cups of corn flakes, and of course the red hots. As for the food coloring, I just kept adding it until I liked the darkness of the green. If you spray your hands with Pam after every cluster or two, you shouldn't have a sticking problem. I also found that parchment paper works so much better then wax paper. Clean your pot right after your done! The hot water will disolve the sticky mess right away. I'm also going to try the mini M&M's next time.
