No-Bake Christmas Wreath Treats Recipe

Cornflakes take the place of traditional rice cereal in these sweet no-bake treats from our Test Kitchen. Dressed up with green food coloring and red candies, they're a fun addition to cookie platters and dessert buffets. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Milwaukee, Wisconsin
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + standing Cook: 5 min. YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 20 large marshmallows
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • Green food coloring
  • 3 cups cornflakes
  • Red M&M's minis (about 2 tablespoons)

Directions

  • 1. Place marshmallows and butter in a microwave-safe bowl; microwave, uncovered, on high until butter is melted and marshmallows are puffed, about 45 seconds. Tint green with food coloring. Stir in cornflakes.
  • 2. On a waxed paper-lined baking sheet, divide mixture into eight portions. Working quickly, shape each into a 3-in. wreath using buttered hands. Decorate immediately with M&M's, pressing to adhere. Let stand until set. Yield: 8 servings.

"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."

"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."
