I remember my mom making these!

Did your mom ever make the Christmas Cornflake wreaths? Mine did. I never liked the cinnamon thingys that she put on for the holly but the cookies were wonderful!
It's really a simple recipe; it mimics Rice Krispie treats. You just substitute Corn Flakes for the Rice Krispies and make wreath shapes instead of just putting in a pan. Here's the recipe from Allrecipes!

1/2 cup butter
30 large marshmallows
1 1/2 tsp green food coloring
1 tsp vanilla extract
4 cups cornflakes cereal
Cinnamon red hots candies

Melt butter in large saucepan over low heat. Add marshmallows, cook until melted, stirring constantly. Remove from heat, stir in vanilla, food coloring and cornflakes. Quickly drop heaping tablespoonfuls onto wax paper and form into wreath shape with greased fingers. Immediately decorate with cinnamon candies. Allow to cool to room temperature before removing from wax paper and storing in airtight container.
