I'm sure a lot of you have seen these corn flake cookie wreaths, which happen to be my favorite treat at Christmas! Here's the recipe so you can try them too:
1/2 cup butter of margarine
30 large marshmallows
1 1/2 teaspoons green food coloring
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
4 cups corn flakes
Red cinnamon candies
In a 2-quart saucepan, melt butter and marshmallows over moderately low heat, stirring constantly. When melted, remove from heat and stir in 1 teaspoon of food color and the vanilla extract. Add more food coloring if desired. Stir in corn flakes. Drop mixture onto wax paper 1 tablespoon at a time. Decorate with red cinnamon candies. Let stand 30 minutes or more until cool.
Simple, Easy, and Sugary...the way I like it!

Is it weird that Kyle and I haven't exchanged Christmas gifts in over five years? Maybe its the fact that we are always traveling over the holidays, or the fact that we don't really need anything.
I always pride myself on being a good gift-giver. I love shopping for my family and trying to find gifts that will be funny or meaningful to them. But for some reason, the thought of buying gifts for my husband doesn't even cross my mind.
Are we weird? Tell me UnBrides - do all of you exchange gifts at the holidays?
