Christmas Wreaths were always my favorite cookie to help my mom make when I was growing up. Mainly because they were fairly easy and required very little attention span (something I have yet to possess), but also because the cookies (being red, green and looking like wreaths...deep, I know) really reminded me of the Christmas season and all of the great times my family and I would get to have together. These are a perfect project for a cold weekend indoors, so try these this weekend and enjoy.
1/2 stick butter or margarine
1 package (10.5 ounces) Kraft Jet-Puffed Miniature Marshmallows
10 ounces Arrowhead Mills Maple Buckwheat Flakes (or another GF corn flake)
1 TBSP green food coloring
Cinnamon red hots
Microwave butter in large microwaveable bowl on high 45 seconds or until melted. Add marshmallows; toss to coat. Microwave 90 seconds or until marshmallows are completely melted and mixture is well blended, stirring after 45 sec. Add green food coloring and stir to mix completely. Add the cereal and carefully fold everything together to ensure each flake has a good coating of marshmallow on it.
Using a spoon, create wreaths on set on wax paper. Top each wreath with two red hots. Refrigerate to set.
