Corn flakes coated with green-tinted marshmallow make a festive and convincing bouquet of holiday holly.

Makes about 12

1/2 cup butter
3 cups miniature marshmallows
1/2 tsp almond extract
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp green food color
4 cups corn flakes
red hot candies

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. Form into 3" mounds on sheets of waxed paper, decorate with red cinnamon candies and silver dragées. Let cool.

Would make this again.
made them but they had no flavor and didn\'t seem to form properly. didn\'t harden right. Going to try once more as I think they are a adorable idea. Thinking maybe used a hair too much food coloring not sure if that would\'ve caused the difference 2 stars

My family has been making these for years. We just love them! We form ours into a circular shape and call it a wreath. 5 stars

Would make this again.
I make these almost every year, but have never done it with the extracts in them. May have to try it this year. Also since there are lots of little kids in the family I've opted to use skittles instead of the cinnamon candy, plus it gives a little bit of color to it. 4 stars
