These festive, no-bake Holly Cookies, are an easy addition to your holiday dessert platter, or Christmas cookie tray.
Line cookie sheets or countertop with parchment paper or foil.
In a double boiler, over medium heat, melt butter and marshmallows. Stir with a wooden spoon until completely melted and smooth. Reduce heat to low.
Add a few drops of green food color to the marshmallow mixture and stir to combine. Add additional food color to achieve the desired color.
Pour corn flakes into the marshmallow mixture and stir until completely coated.
Use a large tablespoon to drop the mixture in mounds onto the parchment paper or foil. Immediately add 3 red candies to the center of each cookie before they cool and become set.
Allow the holly cookies to cool and set up before serving or storing.
