- red cinnamon candies

- Add vanilla and foodcoloring to marshmallow mixture.
- Pour heated marshmallow/food coloring mixture into greased bowl and add corn flakes.
- Drop on wax paper into blobs.

These are really good. The cornflakes are wonderfully crunchy. I prepared these in the microwave instead of on the stove top by melting butter (instead of margarine) in the microwave for 50 sec, adding the marshmallows to the melted butter, stirring to coat and microwaving the mixture for 1 min to melt the marshmallows. The vanilla, food colouring were added as directed and the cornflakes were added to the mixture. I don't care for red cinnamon candies and used dried cranberries instead. Made for Newest Zaar Tag.
