Christmas Cornflake Wreaths

Christmas cornflake wreaths!
Hey guys! This is Lauren, visiting again from Tastes Better From Scratch, and I’m excited to share one of our family’s favorite holiday treats with you!
For as long as I can remember it’s been a tradition in our family to make these cornflake wreaths every year at Christmas time. I have the best memories of standing at the kitchen counter helping my mom and sister make them. My mom would spoon them onto parchment paper, my sister, Liz, would shape them into wreaths, and I would put the cinnamon candies on top. We’d usually  bring them with us to our large family Christmas party, but before we could load them onto a plate you could always count on my brothers to steal a few and devour them.
These are the perfect little treats for the holidays! They’re a lot like rice crispy treats, but they just taste so much better! The cornflake/marshmallow/cinnamon combination is delicious! Plus, they’re budget friendly, and kid friendly, and the whole family can enjoy making them together!

    SO happy I found this. We used to have a giant wreath at Christmas eve and every year eating too much green , it was a tradition! can’t wait to make this with my son!

    Alicia

    They are great!!! They will stay together if you let them set overnight.

    Nicole

    I copied this concept and made pink valentine hearts. I would suggest adding 1-2 cups more marshmallow and a bit more butter, so the flakes are thoroughly covered.

    Krista

    I add almond flavoring to mine. Yum!

    Cynthia

    What if I accidentally bought frosted flakes would that make a big difference ?

    The recipe should call for more marshmallows. I’ve made these before and I wasn’t to happy with the outcome from this recipe.

    Brittany

    Mine won’t stick together???

    How do you store these? Between layers of wax or parchment paper? I need to be able to store these until we make our trays. Thanks :)

      prettyprovidence

      Yes! I think either of those should work great!

    My kids make a non green, “rest of the year” version of these all the time so I know they will be delicious! I love the Christmassy twist you’ve given them.
