Corn Flake Wreaths

A few years ago a friend of ours shared with us a recipe for corn flake Christmas wreaths. I just love these things. They are so festive, simple and taste just like a rice krispie treat :) Enjoy!

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes
Servings: 12

3 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 package (10 oz., about 40) regular marshmallows
- or -
4 cups miniature marshmallows
1 teaspoon green food coloring
6 cups Kellogg's® Rice Krispies® cereal
Canned frosting or decorating gel
Assorted candies

I didn't use frosting. I just stuck red hots to the wreaths as they were cooling.

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

2. Add KELLOGG'S RICE KRISPIES cereal. Stir until well coated.

3. Using 1/4-cup measuring cup coated with cooking spray portion cereal mixture. Using buttered hands each portion into small wreath. Decorate with frosting and/or candies. Best if served the same day.

In microwave-safe bowl heat butter and marshmallows on HIGH for 3 minutes, stirring after 2 minutes. Stir until smooth. Follow steps 2 and 3 above. Microwave cooking times, may vary.


  1. Classic! WONDERFUL idea!!! CAn you do Candy, I have the best carmel recipe if you wanna take a shot...I cannot get it right. I keep getting faulty thermometers ;) Or that what I tell my husband, LOL!

  2. What a cute idea! Looks festive and easy!
