1 (10)ouncepackage "safe" marshmallows
1teaspoongreen food coloring
6cupsCerealRice/Corn Chex or gluten free corn flakes
Gluten Free red cinnamon candieslike Red Hots
In a large, microwave safe bowl, mix together the margarine and marshmallows. Microwave on high for about two minutes or just until the marshmallows begin to puff up. Remove from the microwave and stir until mixture is smooth (you may have to microwave a bit longer after stirring). Stir in the food coloring. Add the corn flakes and stir until they are evenly coated with the marshmallow mixture.
With a measuring cup coated with cooking spray or oil, measure out ¼ cup of the cornflake mixture. Drop it onto the wax paper and shape into a wreath. To prevent the mixture sticking to your hands, moisten them with water. Repeat until all of the corn flake mixture is gone. Decorate with red cinnamon candies. Allow them to set for about an hour.
