Cherrios Christmas Trees

Cherrios Christmas Trees
6 cups honey nut cherrios cereal
6 tablespoons butter
4-1/2 cups miniature marshmallows
Green food color
Red cinnamon candies or sliced gumdrops
Line a cookie sheet with waxed paper.
Pour the cereal into a 4 quart bowl. Set the bowl aside.
Place the butter and marshmallows in a 3 quart saucepan. Heat over low heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture is smooth. Remove the saucepan from the heat.
Stir in the food color until the mixture is evenly colored. Pour the marshmallow mixture over the cereal and stir until the cereal is evenly coated.
Lightly spray your hands with cooking spray. For each tree, shape about 1/4 cup of the cereal mixture into a Christmas tree shape on the cookie sheet.
Press the candies into the trees to decorate. Refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour. Store the trees in a loosely covered container.
