M & &'s Holiday Wreath

What you'll need:
1 1/2 tablespoons margarine
5 ounces marshmallows
3 cups crisp rice cereal
A few drops green food coloring
1 tub ready-to-spread vanilla frosting
2 pounds "M&M's" Plain Chocolate Candies for the Holidays
1 red satin bow
What to do:

Melt margarine in a saucepan over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat and tint with food coloring. Mix in crisp rice cereal. Coat your hands with margarine and form mixture into a ring on wax paper. (Ring should be about 7 inches in diameter.) Stir a few drops of food coloring in the frosting until blended thoroughly. Reserve 1/4 cup and set aside. Using a butter knife or spatula, spread a thin layer of frosting over the entire ring. Place green "M&M's" Plain Chocolate Candies for the Holidays all over the ring. For any open spots, dab some of the vanilla frosting on the back of the green "M&M's" Plain Chocolate Candies for the Holidays and place where needed. Dab frosting on the red "M&M's" Plain Chocolate Candies for the Holidays and place 3 candies in a cluster to create berries. Dab frosting on the back of the bow, and place on wreath. Slice to serve.

I made these with my daughter and granddaughter when they were small.And my granddaughter still asks to make them.
24 double stuffed cream filled sandwich cookies
1 cup (6oz.) semisweet chocolate chips
24 red maraschino cherries with stems,well drained
24 milk chocolate kisses
48 sliced almonds
1 small tube green decorative icing gel
1small tube red decorative icing gel

Carefully twist cookies apart; set aside the halves with cream fillling. Save plain halves for another use. In microwave or heavy saucepan,melt chocolate chips andshortening; stir till smooth. Holding each cherry by the stem, dip in melted chocolate, then press onto the bottom of a chocolate kiss. Place on the cream filling of cookie, with cherry stem extending beyond cookie edge. For ears, place slivered almonds between the cherry and kiss. Refridgerate until set. With green gel, pipe holly leaves on the cream. With red gel, pipe holly berries between the leaves and pipe eyes on each chocolate kiss. Store in air tight container at room temperature. Yeild 2 doz. The kids love making these and it's fun to see their expressions while working with them.
