    Default Cheerios® Christmas Trees

    The Cheerios® Cookbook shares a recipe! Gather a group of crafty kids to create edible holiday table decorations.

    Prep Time: 45 min
    Total Time: 1 hour 45 min
    Makes: 18 trees

    6 cups Honey Nut Cheerios® cereal
    6 tablespoons butter or margarine
    4 1/2 cups miniature marshmallows
    Green food color
    Red cinnamon candies or sliced gumdrops

    1. Line a cookie sheet with waxed paper.
    2. Pour the cereal into a 4-quart bowl. Set the bowl aside.
    3. Place the butter and marshmallows in a 3-quart saucepan. Heat over low heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture is smooth. Remove the saucepan from the heat.
    4. Stir in the food color until the mixture is evenly colored. Pour the marshmallow mixture over the cereal and stir until the cereal is evenly coated.
    5. Lightly spray your hands with cooking spray. For each tree, shape about 1/4 cup of the cereal mixture into a Christmas tree shape on the cookie sheet.
    6. Press the candies into the trees to decorate. Refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour. Store the trees in a loosely covered container.

    Special Touch: Personalize the trees using Betty Crocker® decorator icing (from 4.25-oz tube) and use as place cards. Use the icing to add a garland.
