Mona’s CANDY CHRISTMAS WREATH
My friend Mona always had fun recipes for holidays….and also fun holiday customs for her family. During the week between Christmas and New Years she spent much time cutting newspapers into little confetti pieces and on New Year's Eve at the stroke of midnight her family celebrated by throwing that confetti on each other! Strange thing (to me) was that I never saw any of that confetti around the floor or anywhere in her house after New Years Day; obviously all that confetti ended up in the vacuum cleaner right away!
One of Mona's recipes was for this pretty eatable Christmas wreath. I’ve made this recipe to share at Christmas gatherings many times and it is always a hit. PLUS it really is pretty! This is Mona's recipe:
Melt: 30 large marshmallows with ½ cup butter in a double boiler
Add: 1 tsp. vanilla
2 tsp. green food coloring
Gently Mix: 3 ½ cups corn flakes
Shape into a wreath on waxed paper by dropping by spoonful in a circle.
Decorate with Red Hot candies or Cherries
Easy, right? And it is so festive and tasty
This is the wreath!
This is my sweet old double boiler! I wonder how long I've had it??? It works perfectly and I have no plans to get rid of it!!
