Cornflake Wreaths

  • I had a friend in school whose Mom would make these every Christmas and I adored them, so she'd always pack a second for me in her lunch. Yum! Cut and Paste from here.
  • 1/3 cup margarine or butter
  • 1 (10-ounce) package (about 40) regular marshmallows OR 4 cups miniature marshmallows
  • 1 teaspoon green food coloring
  • 6 cups Kellogg's® Corn Flakes
  • Red cinnamon candies (I prefer red candy coated chocolate candies like Smarties or M&M's)
  • Prepared vanilla frosting (I don't think you really need this to make the candies stick)
    • 1. Melt margrine in large saucepan over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat. Stir in food coloring.
    • 2. Add Kellogg's® Corn Flakes® cereal. Stir until well coated.
    • 3. Portion warm cereal mixture evenly by using a 1/4 cup dry measure coated with cooking spray. Using sprayed fingers, quickly shape into individual wreaths. Dot with cinnamon candies, using prepared frosting to hold candies in place. Store in single layer in airtight container.
