Holly Cookies Cornflake Style

I just ran across my Mom's recipe for Holly Cookies. The index card is stained with green food coloring and looks like it has gotten alot of use during her Christmas baking. I did however add one little thing, used butter instead of margarine and added Vanilla Extract. I suppose you could add other flavorings as well like Almond. The original recipe calls for melting the marshmallows and margarine in a double boiler.

Enjoy...Happy Holidays...get it???

PS:
I took a picture of Mom's original recipe, it brings back GREAT memories.

How to Make Holly Cookies Cornflake Style

Step-by-Step

  1. Cut the candied cherries into fourths(1/4), set aside for decoration.
  2. Add marshmallows and butter(in pieces) to a microwave safe container. Micorwave until mixture is melted. This will take about 1 - 2 minutes. Stir well to make sure that everything has melted and is smooth.
  3. Mix in Pure Vanilla and green food coloring. Stir well to combine.
  4. Add cornflakes to the marshmallow mixture. Stir well to combine.
