1/2 cup butter or margarine
34 large marshmallows (nearly one 10 oz. pkg.)
1 t. green food coloring
1 t. vanilla
4 c. Cornflakes
cinnamon red hot candies
Melt butter in a large saucepan over low heat. Add marshmallows, and cook until melted, stirring constantly. Remove from heat, and stir in the food coloring and vanilla. Pour over cornflakes in a large bowl and mix well.
Quickly drop heaping tablespoonfuls of the mixture onto waxed paper, and form into a wreath shape with buttered fingers. Immediately decorate with red hot candies. Allow to cool to room temperature before removing from waxed paper, and storing in an airtight container.
This is another treat that's great for other holidays (images are linked):
