A Cornflake Christmas Wreath is the perfect Christmas treat for any festivity.

 

This Cornflake Christmas Wreath recipe goes all the way back to my childhood. I remember my mom whipping up a wreath each Christmas and my brothers and I would gobble it up that same night!

Cornflake Christmas Wreath

It is basically a Rice Krispie treat, but substituting Corn Flakes for the puffed rice. It looks like a real Christmas wreath because the wavy flakes imitate the leaves in a wreath! I had this out on the counter the other day when a friend stopped by and she was in awe.  She thought it was a real wreath and didn’t realize it was edible.   Mission accomplished!  She then asked me if I found it on Pinterest.   I said, “No,I made it myself, but I hope you DO see this on Pinterest!”

How to make a Cornflake Christmas Wreath

If you’ve ever made a Krispie treat, you know how easy this is to make.  Just add green food coloring after the marshmallows melt. You can experiment a little with how many marshmallows you need  I used two bags of marshmallows for this batch because my last batch seemed too dry. Two bags worked, but you could probably get way with 1.5 bags too!

I’ve used a bundt pan before, but couldn’t seem to find mine. Luckily my cheesecake springform pan has an insert to make my circle.  Also, if you have a mini donut pan, it might be fun to make individual wreaths for everyone.

This time, I added red hots in the mix for a pop of color (berries on a wreath) but you can also use M&M’s. I liked the spicy hot with the sweet taste.

Then I grabbed a red strawberry fruit roll up and carved out a little bow to place in the corner and voila!!
