Cheerio Trees

Cheerio Trees
by Emilee Wells

My family makes these trees for the treat every year at the Family Home Evening right before Christmas. This recipe makes enough for 4 small trees.

1 10.5-oz bag mini marshamallows (Kraft are the best)
1/2 cube butter or margarine
4-6 cups cheerios (or Toasted Oats if you are cheap like me)
10 drops green food coloring
Assorted candy for decoration (M&Ms, Red Hots, jelly beans, whatever)

Melt butter and marshmallows together in large saucepan (or in large bowl in microwave). Add green food coloring and stir until color is uniform. Add cheerios, and stir to coat thoroughly.
Divide mixture in 4 parts and put each part on a paper plate. Shape into cones for Christmas trees and decorate with candy. Allow to set up and eat.
