Here’s my question. Answer Yes or No — Is mistletoe edible?


No Bake Holly Cookies

yum6 tablespoons margarine
32 regular sized marshmallows
1 teaspoon green food coloring
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups flake cereal (Corn Flakes, Wheaties, Total, Special K, etc)
Red cinnamon candies (aka Red Hots) or red M&M’s


Melt margarine and marshmallows together in microwave (or over a double boiler on low heat)
Once the marshmallows are melted, stir in green food coloring and vanilla. Stir until mixture is a uniform green color.
Fold the flakes into the marshmallow mixture and stir until coated. Drop by teaspoon full onto aluminum foil or waxed paper and garnish with red candies. Let cool to harden. You can also spoon it out into circles for holly wreaths.

Just Released — The Witchy Wolf and the Wendigo

Take a peek inside the book on Amazon!

What does an immortal Native American shaman do when the grave he’s sworn to watch over for all eternity disappears under urban development?
His purpose of guarding his wife’s burial mound is gone, Ashkewheteasu seeks to end his immortal existence. In his despair, Ash assumes the form of a wolf and steps in front of a moving car and into the life of Dr. Olivia “Livie” Rosalini. The veterinarian saves the animal’s life, and in the process saves the man within. Livie has no idea the wolfish dog she’s taken into her home and grows to love is a magical being seeking to win her heart as a man.

While Ash is learning a new world filled with new love, friendship, and happiness, an old menace makes plans to steal it all away; just as he had 3000 years before.

    Yes, mistletoe is edible (in certain forms, and small quantities!). I think your holly cookies look more appetizing. ; ) Thanks for posting those–we used to make those when I was a kid and I had TOTALLY forgotten about them!!

    I will answer your question with a quote
    Batman: “Mistletoe can be deadly if you eat it.”
    Catwoman: “But a kiss can be even deadlier if you mean it.”

    Thanks for the Awesome Hop!

    Blurb and trailer are great. Any cookie recipe is great.

  7. Toni Cosgrove says:

    oh wow..I had forgotten all about this,,My Mom made some years ago. Thanks for the recipe and bringing back a memory. I think it will be fun following you. Mistletoe is edible and makes a good tea, but berries aren;t real tasty.I hope your holidays are full of warm memories and laughter.

  8. Sarah_Madison says:

    Mistletoe berries will kill you! Love the cookies and the trailer!

  9. Lasha says:

    According to Wiki answers: Is mistletoe edible? Yes, leaves are edible and berries when ripe.

    Happy Holidays,

    I think it is edible, but cats and dogs cant.

  11. Holly Underhill says:

    Hello, thanks for the giveaway! In certain foods, it might be edible.

  12. Shannon Bereza says:

    Your question is making me do some research. From what I can gather from many websites, mistletoe technically is edible, but not in large quantities. It seems that it has been used medicinally for the most part or as a tea. The berries are edible only when they are ripe. I learned a lot about mistletoe that I never even knew. Thanks for giving me my daily “learn something new everyday” dose.

  13. Trix says:

    I believe it’s toxic!


  14. leelalou says:

    I think I’ve eaten it before when I was little so I’m going to say yes. Don’t try it at home though 🙂

    Thanks for being a part of the blog hop and Happy Holidays
