Christmas Cornflake Wreaths

  • Author: Jenna
  • Total Time: 1 hr 10 min
  • Yield: 24 1x


  • 1 (16 oz) package regular marshmallows
  • 1/3 cup butter
    • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 6 to 8 drops  green food coloring
  • 6 cups corn flakes
  • red cinnamon candies or rainbow


  1. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment. Combine the marshmallows and butter in a large bowl and microwave on 50-percent power in 30-second intervals, stirring in between each, until melted, about 1 minute 30 seconds.
  2. Stir in the vanilla and enough food coloring to make the mixture a deep green, 10 to 15 drops. Stir in the cornflakes until they are completely coated.
  3. Working with wet hands, form the mixture into twenty-four 2-inch balls. Flatten on the prepared baking sheets and poke a hole in the middle of each with your finger, molding the sides as needed to form a wreath shape. Decorate with the cinnamon candies to create holly berries. 
  4. Form the red candy strips into a simple bow on each wreath. Sprinkle lightly with the white nonpareils for snow. Let set at room temperature to firm up, about 2 hours, or refrigerate 30 minutes.
