These Christmas cornflake wreath treats are one of the easiest treats to make during the holidays! Someone very special to me taught me how to make these and I have been making them every year since! Not only are they delicious, but they easy enough that the whole family can help make them together.
- 1/2 Cup Butter
- 5 Cups of Marshmallows
- Green Food Coloring
- 6 Cups Kellogg’s Cornflakes Cereal
- Optional: Cinnamon Red Hot Candies (or other decorations of your choosing)
OTHER ITEMS YOU WILL NEED:
- Large Mixing Bowl
- Medium-Large Saucepan
- Mixing Spoon or Rubber Spatula
- Parchment Paper
- In your large mixing bowl, add your 6 cups of Kellogg’s Cornflakes Cereal and set aside.
- Melt your 1/2 cup of butter in a medium-large saucepan on low heat. When the butter has melted, add 5 cups of marshmallows and continue stirring until melted. Once the marshmallows are completely melted, add your food coloring. I usually just add 3-4 drops depending on the color I am going for. The amount of drops you choose is entirely up to you and your desired color!
- Pour the marshmallow mixture onto the cornflakes in your mixing bowl. Try to coat evenly when pouring. Mix the marshmallows and cereal until it is well coated.
- Lay out a piece of your parchment paper onto your counter or table.
- Coat your hands with a non-stick cooking spray or rinse them in a little water. Take a spoonful of your mixture and roll it into a ball. Flatten the ball on your parchment paper and form it into a “wreath” or “donut” shape. Continue until all your mixture has been formed into wreaths.
- Add 3 cinnamon red hots in a bunch to create a holly berry look, or decorate using your own decorations.
Tip: If you are making these for a party or as a gift, package them using the parchment paper to make sure they don’t stick together. Lay a piece of parchment paper between each layer of wreaths.
I hope you enjoy making this fun little treat for your family and friends! Let me know what you would like to see more of here on the blog – currently planning out 2020 content and would love to share things you really want to see and read about!
