Cheerios Christmas Trees

Prep Time20 mins
Servings: 6 persons

Ingredients

  • 6 cups Cheerios
  • 6 Tbsp butter
  • 5 cups mini marshmallows
  • Green food coloring
  • M&M candies (specifically red, yellow and green)
  • Cooking spray

Instructions

  • Pour the Cheerios into a large mixing bowl and set aside.
  • In a large saucepan, melt the butter and marshmallows on low-medium heat, constantly stirring until the mix is smooth.
  • Add the melted marshmallow mixture and the green food coloring to the Cheerios. Stir until it's evenly coated.
  • Generously coat your hands with cooking spray and grab a handful of the Cheerios mixture. Shape into a tree. Place them on a sheet of waxed paper. While they are still sticky, place red and green M&M candies on the trees as ornaments and a yellow M&M on the top of each one for the star.
  • Refrigerate about an hour before serving.
