* 2 tablespoons butter
* 2 cups pastel miniature marshmallows
* 3 cups crisp rice cereal
* 1/4 cup finely chopped Diamond of California® Pecans
* Green decorator's sugar
* Confectioners' sugar
* In a heavy saucepan, melt butter. Stir in marshmallows; cook and stir over low heat until melted. Remove from the heat; stir in cereal and pecans. Let cool just enough to handle.
* With greased hands, shape into trees. (Work quickly as the cereal hardens quickly and becomes difficult to form.) Roll in green sugar. Place on a serving tray; dust with confectioners' sugar. Yield: about 1-1/2 dozen.
