Holiday Baking!

So this past Sunday was spent in the kitchen making Holiday Goodies for Matt's co-workers! I will start off by saying I missed Marissa.....every year my sister comes over and does this with us but her and my parents went to spent the weekend at their lake house for her to decompress for finals! Next year!
Are you ready for some recipes????
Let's start with the delish Holly leaves below (next to my Toffee Nuts) these Holly's are both Matt and Marissa's favorite!!!!

Make It
MELT butter in large saucepan on low heat. Add marshmallows; cook and stir 3 to 4 min. or until melted. Stir in food coloring.

ADD cereal; stir to evenly coat. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto waxed paper-covered baking sheets sprayed lightly with cooking spray. Press candies into cereal mixture, flattening each mound slightly.

LET stand at room temperature 30 min. or until firm.

I think I have to do this this year! And I may have to use your recipes! I've been looking online at recipes and I need something easy, not a ton of ingredients (I tend to get overwhelmed, ha!), and colorful! These are perfect! Well done! I bet you are the fav wife!
