Christmas Marshmallow Wreath Cookies

 

Marshmallow Wreath Cookies

Ok, Kitchen Chicks, it’s Christmas Party time at school and you forgot to make cookies and it’s 11:00 at night.  Sorry to say, I’ve been in this situation a few times.  These cookies are pretty enough to bring to a social gathering, but cute enough to bring to your child’s school Holiday party.  They are very festive and best of all, fast and easy to make.  My mom introduced these to me at one 11:00 session way back when I was the child who forgot I needed cookies the next day.  So dig these ingredients out of your pantry and make:

Instructions
  1. In a large pot, melt the butter at medium low heat so that you don't scorch it. If you do, start over. The cookies will taste horrible.
  2. Once the butter melts, open the bag of marshmallows and dump them in with the butter.
  3. Continue over medium low heat until the marshmallows are completely melted.
  4. Remove from the heat and add the green food coloring and stir until combined.
  5. Add the cornflakes and stir until all of the cornflakes are covered in green goo.
  6. Use the spoon you stirred with to drop the mixture onto parchment paper in 14 scoops. (That's how many I had anyway.)
  7. Butter your fingers and form the rings while the cookies are still soft.
  8. Use the medium sized hole attachment that comes with the Wilton frosting to make the berries on the wreaths. If you're really talented, you could try to make ribbons at the bottom too. You can tell by the pictures that I was not successful in this endeavor. Ha Ha! No one will be the wiser.marshmallow before cookies
  9. Let sit out until firm.
  10. Take to school and impress your child's teacher.
Recipe Notes

Here's a tip about the frosting.  It's a little runny in the beginning, so spray a little out on a paper towel before you spray it on the cookies.  Then, just have some fun with your little chick.
