Cornflake Christmas Wreaths

The marshmallow mixture is tinted green to make these cereal snacks look like holiday wreaths.

Cornflake Christmas Wreaths
Yield: 12 wreaths


  • 1 10 1/2 ounce bag 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 balls

Make It

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.
