Need a star entry for your holiday cookie platter? Add some holiday cookie cheer with our Holly Crackles. They're bite-sized wreath-shaped cookies that look as good as they taste - and they always disappear in a flash.

What You'll Need:
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
  • 30 large marshmallows (a 10-ounce bag contains 38 to 40)
  • 1 to 1-1/2 teaspoons green food color
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 4 cups cornflakes cereal
  • Red-hot cinnamon candies, for decorating
What To Do:
  1. In a medium saucepan, melt butter and marshmallows over medium-low heat, stirring constantly.
     
  2. When melted, remove from heat and stir in 1 teaspoon food color and the vanilla. Add more food color, if desired. Stir in cornflakes.
     
  3. Drop mixture, 1 tablespoon at a time, onto wax paper. Decorate with candies. Let stand 30 minutes, or until cool.
Option
  • You can make these an Easter or springtime treat, too. Use pastel food color and jelly beans and call them Birds' Nests!
