Christmas Wreath Cookies Recipe

Christmas Wreath Cookies Recipe – These cornflake wreaths are easy cookies to make with the kids during the holidays. Once people try them, they can’t get enough!

Yields: 3 dozen


waxed paper
½ cup butter
4 cups miniature marshmallows
1 teaspoon green food coloring, or as needed
½ teaspoon almond extract
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
4 cups cornflakes cereal
1 (2.25 ounce) package cinnamon red hot candies


Line a baking tray with waxed paper.

Place marshmallows and butter in a microwave-safe bowl; microwave on high for 2 minutes. Stir, then microwave on high for 2 minutes more; stir.

Mix in coloring, almond extract, and vanilla until the desired color is reached; gently stir in cornflakes to coat. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto the prepared tray and use lightly greased fingers to form wreath shapes; decorate with 3 red hots each.

Allow cookies to cool and set, about 15 minutes; store in an airtight container.


If you don’t have a microwave, place marshmallows and butter in a double boiler over simmering water. Stir frequently, scraping down the sides with a rubber spatula to avoid scorching, until marshmallows and butter are melted, about 5 minutes.
