    Cornflakes Wreath Cookies

    All these yummy treats need are a few simple ingredients for making them at home. You can prepare these cookies by yourself or with the kids, too. If your children like sweet and crunchy treats, I guarantee that they will love these cookies and continuously beg you to make more of them.

    Essential Ingredients to Use

    Before getting started, check your pantry for these must-have ingredients. If you do not have them, you can easily find what you require at your local grocery store.

    • Cornflakes: The main ingredient. Of course, you can purchase the generic brand, no need for fancy here. Choose the plain ones, with no added sugar or other ingredients.
    • Marshmallows: The large marshmallows you use in this recipe get melted down and mixed with the cornflakes to create something so heavenly. You can use homemade marshmallows, big ones or mini marshmallows.
    • Food coloring: Use a safe food coloring in green and red to give these cookies their Christmas-themed colors.
    • Red candies: Okay, the recipe calls for red cinnamon candies, which I absolutely love. However, I know not everyone is a big cinnamon fan. If you do not like cinnamon, pick some other type of red candy, such as M&Ms, to make for your decoration.

    I usually have these ingredients on hand because I make the Cornflake Wreath Cookies quite often. I am always making a new batch of these cookies in my house because they tend to go so quickly with everyone eating them all up.

    When to Make these Cookies

    You can make these Cornflakes Christmas Wreath Cookies whenever you want ahead of time. Make them for your family to take to school with them, and prepare lots of extras for to have at home. My husband has taken these cookies to holiday office parties, and they were a huge hit.


    Storage Tips

    Keep your Cornflakes Wreath Cookies as fresh as possible by storing them in a large container with a lid. You should line the bottom of the container with parchment paper, spread the cookies out, and then place more parchment paper on top.

    Be sure to place the lid on tightly to keep air from getting into the container. You can leave the cookies out on a table until you want to grab a few or bring them to the special holiday event you plan to attend. I have used a disposable aluminum container with a plastic lid when storing these cookies for holiday parties.
