"No cookie tray is complete without these cornflake wreaths. We always add a bit of green food coloring for fun."

"These are a Christmas tradition. I've made these with my daughter since she was small. She is now making them with her toddler. We add green food coloring to the melted marshmallow mixture before the corn flakes."
