This is like a version of rice krispie treats, but I think this is a little better for the Christmas holidays.

Someone made these for me last Christmas. They were awesome!! But it seems the red hots were very hard. Could red M&M Minis be used instead-or would they melt?

I can't even begin to tell you how gorgeous these made my cookie trays. Everyone was so impressed. Half the staff walked around last night with green tongues. Beautiful.
