Place cereal and cherries in a large greased bowl; mix together lightly.
Combine sugar, salt, soda, corn syrup, and milk in saucepan.
Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring to dissolve sugar.
Continue boiling, stirring constantly, until a small amount of mixture forms a firm ball in cold water (or to a temperature of 246°F.).
Remove from heat and cool 1 minute.
Add vanilla and butter and beat until thick.
Pour over cereal and mix well.
Let stand until mixture is cold.
Butter hands lightly and shape into 2-inch balls.
If desired, tie balls with red and green ribbons.
