1/2 cup butter
3 cups miniature marshmallows

Melt butter, add marshmallows, stirring until all marshmallows are melted. Add extracts and food coloring; stir until it is a uniform green color. When mixture is smooth, add corn flakes; mix well but gently so as not to crush the cornflakes.

Would make this again.
A family favorite for years. Notice bakers: These are hard to form before the marshmallows set. Put a blob on parchment paper and maneuver a hole in the middle and work outwards They keep together better if they are slightly thicker. 5 stars

I loved to do this! They came out perfectly! Instead of using red hots, we used red mini M&M's, which were so much better. I can't wait to see the treats at the Cookie walk at my church! :D 5 stars

Corn flakes are better than rice crispies due to the saltiness and it was a big hit with my kids! 5 stars

This is an annual "must have" for us. However, since my kids won't eat redhot candies, we use the red mini-M&M's instead. 5 stars
