"Definitely won't make these again. Way to messy, hard to shape, everything sticks to your hands, spoons, whatever you are using. I thought they would be cute for a party. If there's a secret to doing these, please let me know."

"I've been making this for over 40 years. However, I gave up making wreaths almost that many years ago. Just drop on waxed paper and somewhat make holly leaves with red hots dropped in the center. Much less messy that way."

"Easy but double the recipe if you're going to make them. Too much work for 8 servings. I used cinnamon candies on the wreaths instead of M & M's and be sure to either butter your fingers when shaping or spray with Pam."

"Oh, these are a favorite with my girls and their friends. They are grown now, but still ask for them. To shape the wreath, I put 2 or 3 lg. spoonful globs on tin foil and with buttered fingers I poke the center and spread a little to look like a wreath. I only do 2-3 at a time because they set up fast. I always had one of the girls (with dry hands) put the red hots on as I was making the wreaths. When done, we'd cut around the tin foil, which acted like a doilie."
