A Christmas Tradition

By Candy Freeman

This recipe is very special to me because my mom and I made these for many years at Christmas time. I have her hand written recipe in my collection. My daughter and I just made these after the Thanksgiving meal and we laughed as we worked with our buttery fingers trying to shape the wreaths and shared memories about making these with mom/grandma. It’s such a simple cookie with only 5 ingredients and no baking and yet so yummy with the vanilla and the great texture of the cereal mixture.


Melt butter in double boiler and add marshmallows  Stir until creamy and melted.

Add vanilla and food coloring.

Put 7 cups of cornflakes in a large bowl and crush them slightly with a cup. Pour marshmallow mixture over cornflakes and stir well.

Butter fingers and shape the mixture into wreaths and put on wax paper lined baking sheets. Add 3 red hots to add a festive touch.

Store them in a sealed container on layers of wax paper in a cool area so they stay set.
