After Theo points out the lack of holly pastries in the shop, Marlee searches on Pinterest for a recipe that incorporates a holly theme. This easy, no-bake recipe seemed perfect. Variations of this recipe call for shaping the batter into wreaths. Since the leaves and berries of holly are poisonous, real holly is not included. What you will find included is a lot of flavor.
Heat butter in a large saucepan or pot until melted. Add marshmallows.
Stir until all the marshmallows are melted. Mix in the green food coloring.
Stir in the cornflakes cereal, until all the pieces are coated.
Drop by spoonfuls onto wax paper. Press 3 cinnamon candies into each cornflake cluster.
Let cool until set.
Makes approximately 24 cookies.
