Fun & Festive Holiday Wreath Treats

Food & Party 8

wreath treatsYou've heard of Rice Krispie treats, but it's time to broaden the horizons and experiment with Corn Flake treats. They're super easy and super yummy. And when all's said and done, they look like cute little wreath treats. Just stir up some Kellogg's Corn Flakes and some marshmallows, grab some food coloring and a kid or two for help, and viola! Your treats are complete. The salty crunch of the flakes combined with the sugary deliciousness of the marshmallows mixed with the awesome green dye is a winning combination if there ever was one. And the best part is, kids freak out over this stuff!

Kellogg's Corn Flakes Holiday Wreaths

Makes 16 wreaths; prep time is 40 minutes; ready to eat in 70 minutes.


  • 1/3 cup margarine or butter
  • 4 cups miniature marshmallows (or 1 package -- about 40 -- regular marshmallows)
  • 1 teaspoon green food coloring
  • 6 cups Kellogg's Corn Flakes (or Frosted Flakes, if you want!)
  • Red cinnamon candies
  • Store-bought white icing


1. Melt butter in large saucepan over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat. Stir in food coloring.

  • You can also do this in the microwave: Microwave marshmallows and butter on High for 2 minutes. Stir, then microwave on High for 2 minutes more. Stir.

2. Add Kellogg's Corn Flake cereal. Stir until well coated.

3. Portion warm cereal mixture evenly onto wax paper or lightly greased cookie sheet. 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.

I made them last christmas. Very addictive, we made them multiple times AFTER christmas was over as well. Not too good for our waistlines. They are cute and fun to make though. We used mini M&Ms because we don't like the cinnamon candies.

Oh, no way - the weird color creeps me, and my kids, out.  That much food coloring is no bueno.

Man, the whole fear of calories and food colorings is ruining christmas for people! My aunt used to make these as little holly bushes every year in the box of various christmas cookies she sent out to everyone! They were adorable! I miss those christmas cookies! All sorts of colors and shapes and types. Now people are so damn stuck on their diets and no sugar, no coloring, etc that making christmas cookies isn't a common thing anymore. It's sad! Next year, after we have moved into our new house, my kids and I are making gobs of christmas cookies of all kinds!
