Cornflake Christmas Wreath

Pin It

This is a family tradition since I was a kid – my mom always made these for family gatherings, parties, or just to give as gifts. It is a simple recipe that is fun and festive, plus you can add what you want depending on where you are using it.

As simple as rice krispie treats, you can create a Christmas wreath for a festive treat. Use it as a centerpiece and fill it with other holiday treats – or give it as a gift. Either way, your family or friends will love this edible wreath!

Ingredients:

  • Box of Cornflakes
  • 16 ozs of Marshmallows (1 bag)
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • Green Food Coloring
  • Red Hot Candies
  • Optional: Candy Canes

Directions:

1. Melt butter and Marshmallows in microwave stirring every minute until marshmallows are completely dissolved.

2. Add green food coloring to melted mixture – stir in until you reach color desired for wreath.  (Approx. 2 TBLS)

3. Pour hot melted mixture over Cornflakes. Stir quickly to coat all cereal.

4. Pour mixture over buttered bowl(s) – let fall in shape of wreath.

5. Place red hot candies around the wreath while hot, to look like berries.

6. Place one candy cane on each side of wreath.

7. Put bow at top if wanted. Remove bowl from center after partially cooled.

8. Optional: Fill center with goodies (cookies, candy, etc).

And here are a couple ideas of goodies to fill it with:
