Edible Christmas Wreath

My Grandma Slagenweit made these every year at Christmastime and I loved them as a child. Nothing nutritious here but so very fun!

Suggestion - It helps to measure everything beforehand.

You'll need:

1/2 Cup Margarine
30 Marshmallows
1 tsp green food coloring
1 tsp vanilla
3 1/2 cups corn flakes
Cinnamon red hots and silver dragees

Melt margarine and marshmallows on medium heat stirring constantly until marshmallows are melted. Add food coloring and vanilla and stir. Add corn flakes and stir until corn flakes are covered with marshmallow mixture.

Allow to cool until  able to handle. Form a ring around a plate then decorate with cinnamon red hots and silver dragees.

My grandchildren (the girls especially) always count on having one over Christmas...just like Grandma's. I usually wait until they are here so we can make it together. That should happen here tomorrow, Lord willing. Oh, the wonderful memories!!!

So pretty! We'll try that next year. This year, the sweets have taken over our home and we certainly should not add any more to the mix. :)
