Updated December 11, 2014

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 package (10 oz) miniature marshmallows
  • 20 drops green liquid food color
  • 3/4 cup white vanilla baking chips
  • 5 cups Whole Grain Total™ cereal
  • 56 red cinnamon candies

Steps

  • 1
    In large microwavable bowl, microwave butter uncovered on High 30 seconds to 1 minute or until melted. Add marshmallows; toss to coat. Microwave uncovered on High 1 minute 30 seconds to 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds, until marshmallows are completely melted and mixture is well blended.
  • 2
    Stir in green food color to desired shade of green. Add white vanilla baking chips to marshmallow mixture, and stir until melted, microwaving an additional 30 seconds if necessary.
  • 3
    Stir in cereal until evenly coated.
  • 4
    Drop 1/3 cup of cereal mixture on waxed paper-lined cookie sheet. Use greased hands to form into wreath shape. Place 4 red cinnamon candies on wreath to decorate. Repeat with remaining cereal mixture and candies. Refrigerate 15 minutes before serving.

  • Use candy sprinkles or other small round candies in place of the cinnamon candies, if desired.
  • For extra-festive flavor, try stirring 1/2 teaspoon of peppermint extract into the marshmallow mixture before adding the cereal.
