    Upper Crusty's Note:

    Someone brought this in to work and I thought I could copy it without a recipe, and did! Have never worked with marshmallows before, WOW (suggestions appreciated)!! Work fast, it's hot! Hint 1: Buy generic corn flakes at the $1 store! Hint 2: If the "berries" don't stick on the "holly", put the cold holly in the microwave for 20 sec. (on waxed paper) and then add the berries.

      These are so tasty, I ate several myself and really didn't want to pack them in my gift boxes. For looks, they added that something extra to my gifts. I think that the brand marshmallow you use may have some bearing on how the cornflakes are manageable. You do have to work quickly and I finally gave up on the cinnamon 'berries'. I added red berries after the wreaths were all formed by using candy melts in a piping bag. That worked quite well and saved a lot of hassle, but since the cinnamon taste is such a nice compliment to them, I will use cinnamon oil in the candy melts the next time I do this.

      These tasted good but they were very very sticky and I followed the recipe exactly. I don't know what I did wrong. I don't think I will make this again.

      These turned out great and I can't wait until my children are old enough to make this with them. Thanks for the post!
