cornflake christmas wreaths

What a cute treat for the holidays!


  • 1 bag (10.5 ounces) mini marshmallows

  • 1/4  cup (1/2 stick) butter

  •  Green food coloring

  •  4-1/2  cups cornflake cereal

  •  Jumbo red nonpareils

  •  Light corn syrup

  •  Red sour belts


1. Line 2 baking sheets with nonstick foil or parchment paper. Lightly coat a 1/3-cup measure with nonstick spray.

2. Stir marshmallows and butter in a large saucepan over low heat until melted and smooth. Remove from heat and tint with 5 or 6 drops of food coloring. Gently stir in cornflakes.

3. Scoop 1/3 cupfuls of the mixture and drop into 6 piles on each baking sheet. Let cool 5 minutes. Spray fingers with nonstick cooking spray and shape each pile into a wreath, gently compressing the flakes together. Refrigerate until firm.

4. Decorate wreaths with nonpareils or candy balls, attaching them with a dab of corn syrup.
