Weekend Cooking: Christmas Cornflake Wreaths

Cornflake Christmas Wreath

I love to make these at Christmastime because they're simple (albeit a bit messy) to make and they don't require many ingredients.

1/2 c. butter (don't use low fat or tub margarine, too much water content)
32 lg. marshmallows*
1/4 tsp. green food coloring (I always end up using more for the color I want)
1/2 tsp. vanilla
3-1/2 c. cornflakes

Make as rice krispie treats essentially. Melt butter and marshmallows over low heat in saucepan. When melted, add coloring and vanilla. Fold in cornflakes until well coated. Drop on waxed or parchment paper and form into individual wreaths or one big wreath and decorate while mixture is still warm.

*Marshmallow conversion

10 minis = 1 lg
1c. mini = 10 lg

Love you guys and talk to you very soon,


  1. How very cute! I'm going to remember this for next year. I love them.

    Merry Christmas.

    1. Thanks so much Beth. I'm going to have to try my making the lamb recipe you posted. I've never cooked lamb (except for ground in gyro meat) but your recipe sounds pretty doable.

  2. I love it! I am definitely making these next year. Thanks for posting the how-to.

    1. Thank you, Alex. You're very welcome. Have a Happy New Year.

  3. Mmm, I love these! My family has made them every year for as long as I can remember :)

    1. I know, they are so yummy. I have the hardest time not eating it all before shaping them into wreaths. But I can't fool anyone because my lips get all stained green :)

  4. These would be fun to try at school. Delicious and nutritious.

    1. Oh the kids would have a blast. Just make sure you have plenty of wipes on hand for all those sticky fingers :)
