Through the end of December, we’ll be sharing holiday recipes where our team reminisces about holidays past and looks forward to the new year! Follow along for delicious eats and a look into the special traditions of the Berg Larsen Group’s team and their families.

Kicking off this cozy series, we have business partner and realtor Chad Larsen sharing not only his favorite holiday treat, Holly Cookies, but some precious family photos as well.

"My mom used to participate in cookie exchanges around the holiday time. I always remember these for their bright color and very sugary goodness. I’m not sure how many this recipe makes, but I found it in my mom’s old recipe box. It is a perfect no-bake recipe that is great with kids and grandkids."

Holly Cookies


❖    30 large marshmallows (about 1 bag)

❖    1 stick butter (unsalted or salted) – my mom only ever bought salted Land-o’-lakes

❖    3 cups Corn Flakes

❖    Green food coloring

❖    1 bag of Cinnamon Imperials or Red Hot candies

❖    Wax paper


❖    Melt 30 large marshmallows in a double boiler

❖    Add 1 stick of butter, melt and mix together

❖    Add ½ teaspoon of green food coloring and stir together

❖    Mix in 3 cups of Corn Flakes

❖    Drop silver-dollar-size of mixture onto waxed paper

❖    Place 3 red candies on top

❖    Let stand at room temperature, or place in refrigerator to set

The resulting “Cookie” looks like a Holly tree/leaf/wreath – perfect for the holidays!
