  • 1 tsp green food coloring
  • cinnamon red hots

  • Remove from heat, add extracts, food coloring and cereal.
  • Mix gently to combine without breaking up the cereal.
  • Place on a sheet of waxed paper, and form into wreaths.
  • Decorate with red hot candy.
The cookies themselves were fairly good, to be honest.  My kids liked them, and we had a blast sharing them with our neighbors!
