Marshmallow Cereal Wreaths
These were a staple of my childhood Christmases! This year I wanted to share the sticky, gooey joy with my girls, so we made up a small batch of Marshmallow Cornflake Wreaths after school.
- 6 cups cornflakes
- 1 bag marshmallows
- 1/3 c butter
- green food coloring
- vanilla (optional)
These are made just like rice crispy treats. Start by melting your butter in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Add the marshmallows and stir until completely smooth. Remove from heat and stir in the food coloring. Now add your cornflakes and gently stir to coat.
Place mixture by 1/4 cupfuls onto wax paper. Form into wreaths with buttered hands and add M&Ms for decorations. Yields around 18 wreaths.
I think they made the perfect finishing touch to our cookie tins! These are going out to the neighbors this afternoon.
We also included spritz cookies, orange spritz cookies, chocolate crinkles, and toffee bark.
Of course, we saved a few for ourselves...
