Ever since I can remember, my mom, sister and I have made these Christmas Cornflake Wreaths for the holidays. I have such fond memories of making these with the girls in my family! We’d line up, assembly line style. My mom would plop a spoonful onto parchment paper, I would shape it into a wreath, and my sister would add the red hots. Then we’d have to hide them before my brothers devoured them all!
Check out this short video to see just how easy they are to make!
- 1/2 cup butter
- 5 heaping cups miniature marshmallows
- 1 tsp green food coloring
- 5 1/2 cups corn flakes cereal
- Handful of red cinnamon candies
Measure corn flakes into a large bowl.
Melt butter in a large saucepan over low heat. Once melted, add the marshmallows and stir continuously until completely melted. Stir in food coloring.
Pour melted marshmallows into the large bowl with the corn flakes. Stir until well coated.
Lay out a piece of parchment paper on your kitchen counter. Dollop spoonfuls of the cornflake mixture onto the parchment paper. Grease your (clean) hands with butter or cooking spray, or dip them in a little bit of water. Use your fingers to shape each spoonful into an individual wreath. Top each wreath with cinnamon candies.
