Rice Krispie Christmas Trees

5 Cups Rice Krispies
1/4 cup margarine or butter
4 cups mini marshmallows
green food coloring
red cinnamon candies

Melt margarine or butter in a 3 qt pan, then add 4 cups marshmallows and cook over low heat stirring constantly till syrupy. Remove from heat, add food coloring till a fairly dare green color. Add cereal and stir until well coated. Shape into the shape of a tree with buttered hands and dot with the red cinnamon candies for decorations. Let cool.

Variation: Use Corn Flakes and make Christmas Wreaths and dot with the candies.

These are so festive looking. When you take a plate of cookies to a friend or relative's house and have a few of these on the plate, it just sets off the plate so nicely.
Kids love to eat these treats as well.
