I made these when I was a Girl Scout and everyone still enjoys them each Christmas. Kids of all ages love 'em.

We've been making these in my family for over 40 years, sans food coloring for throughout-the-year enjoyment! We use Frosted Flakes instead of cornflakes and because I used to pick them off and throw them away, red sugar instead of red hots. I don't really agree with the other reviewer that they taste like Rice Krispie Treats (never really liked those), but the recipe is similar of course. Lastly, you could easily use 5 cups of flakes, which I think tastes better (not so rich), but you won't get the pretty green coverage.
- 1⁄4 lb margarine
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons green food coloring
- 24 fresh marshmallows
- 4 cups corn flakes
- 72 small red cinnamon candies
