I've been making these since the 1970's, but I drop them onto parchment without making a hole in the center, add the red hots, and they look like wreaths. Wouldn't be Christmas without them!

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.

My kids love to help me make these. We make them every year. Messy, but yummy and fun.

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.

I used red hot candis instead.

love this recipe as is, but love it more with peanut butter added to marshmellow mix before cornflakes. About 1/2 cup pb.

My mother used to make these when I was little. I make them with my boys as they are kid friendly to decorate. We love them.

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.
