In a large pot, combine all ingredients except the butter. Over a medium heat, bring to a boil. Stir frequently until sugar and candies are dissolved. Reduce heat and simmer for about an hour. Before serving, place a small pad of butter in each mug. Pour cider into mug over butter. Add cinnamon stick and stir.

1 cup butter or margarine
1/3 cup peanut butter
Ingredients: 1/2 apple, cored, miniature marshmallows, peanut butter
Festive Popcorn Trees
12 Cups popped popcorn 1 cup sugar 1 cup light corn syrup 1/2 cup peanut butter Green food coloring 1/2 cup M&M's
Pop popcorn and pour into a large bowl. Combine sugar and corn syrup in medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Stirring constantly, boil 1 minute. Remove from heat. Add peanut butter and green food coloring. Stir until peanut butter is melted completely. Pour over popcorn and mix well. Lightly butter hands and shape into trees. While still warm add M&M's candies by pressing them into the trees. Place on a baking sheet covered with wax paper. Let cool completely.
Graham Cracker Treasure Chest
Graham Crackers M&M candies or other coated Christmas Candies, tube of frosting, peppermint candy canes (if desired)
You will need 4 graham crackers; one graham cracker broke in half. For the bottom, frost all the way around the edges of one graham cracker. Frost three sides of each of the graham crackers that make up the main body of the treasure chest. Push them together, you'll want to have some sort of surface that will help support them while they dry. I used a cookie sheet. Once you have all the graham crackers together let dry about 15 minutes then decorate with frosting and candies. If you wish you may add candies or some other prize inside the treasure chest.
