Christmas Cookie Countdown

Here is another cookie recipe from my great grandmother.  She loved to bake cookies especially at Christmas time.  So at family gatherings there would always be several plates scattered throughout the house with her yummy treats.  This is one she always brought.
These were my favorite when I was a kid.  I'd always take the red hots off and eat them first and then eat the rest.  ;)  Christmas is such a good time for memories.
Hope you enjoy them!  :)

Christmas Wreath Cookies

4 T. butter
4 c. mini marshmallows
6 c. cornflakes
green food coloring
red hots

Melt butter in large pot.  Add marshmallows and stir til melted.  Add green food coloring until desired darkness.
Stir in corn flakes.  Mix until well coated.
Then spoon onto greased wax paper.  Place three red hots on wreaths before they cool so they will stick.

Here's another fun game I just couldn't pass up on sharing...

This is a great game for Christmas parties or family gatherings!
Give everyone a candy cane as they arrive.
Through out the night if someone hears someone else say the word 'Christmas' they get that persons candy cane.  The person with the most candy canes at the end of the party wins!
