How Do You Make Christmas Cornflake Wreaths?

  • Measure cornflakes into a large bowl
  • Melt Butter in a large saucepan over medium low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until it’s melted. Stir in food coloring. Add the marshmallows to the cornflakes and mix.
  • Lay out a piece of parchment paper. Drop large spoonfuls of cornflakes onto the paper. Butter or lightly grease your hands and use your fingers to shape each into a wreath. Top with cinnamon candies.

Red Cinnamon Candies Substitutions and Ideas

If you do not love cinnamon flavor you can substitute it for Red Mini M and M’s, Red Sixletts or using Red String Licorice to make a bow on the wreaths. You can also add the Red Candies around the wreath in a pattern rather than just three bundle up together. The options are endless and are expected to be as creative as you feel inspired when making your own wreath.
