Granulated Sugar-Cookie Platter

Holly Confections

Hello!  Sorry I have been so quiet lately...it was finals week last week and, this week, I have been running around with holiday errands.  Now it's time to get back in the swing of things!
This recipe comes from my grandmother and has always been a family favorite.  I could not describe these treats better than my grandmother does on the type-written recipe, "Holly confections look almost like ceramics--pretty garnish for cookie platter."
Holly Confections
-30 large marshmallows (or 3 cups mini marshmallows)
-1 stick (or 1/2 cup) or your favorite dairy free butter
-3 cups corn flakes
-1 1/2 teaspoons green food coloring
-Red cinnamon candies or red granulated sugar
-Small splash of vanilla (optional)
Melt marshmallows and dairy free butter in the top of a double boiler.
Stir in coloring; remove from heat.  Add corn flakes; mix gently and quickly until completely coated.
Drop from teaspoon onto waxed paper.  Sprinkle with cinnamon candies or granulated sugar.
Let sit for a few hours until completely cool and the hollies have set.  Store in an airtight container.
Like I said earlier, these are a great little garnish for a cookie platter, or are perfect on their own!  Enjoy! read more..
