  • 1 stick
  • 30 large
  • 1/2 tsp
  • 1 1/2 tsp
    green food coloring
  • 3 1/2 c
    corn flakes
  • 1 1/8 bottle
    cinnamon decors
  • 1/4 c
    powdered sugar

How to Make Holly Wreaths


  1. In a large saucepan, melt the butter and marshmallows. Stir frequently until you have a smooth mixture.
  2. Turn off heat and add the vanilla and green food coloring. Stir until blended. Don't worry that the mixture is too green - it will be!
  3. Stir in the corn flakes until all are coated. Use a folding motion so you don't smash the corn flakes too much.
  4. Using 2 teaspoons, drop a heaping teaspoon of the mixture onto waxed paper sprinkled with powdered sugar. (I use a sifter to get the sugar onto the paper lightly, since you don't need a lot of the powdered sugar, just a light dusting.)
  5. Work quickly so the mixture doesn't set up, which makes it hard to get them out of the pan. This recipe can be doubled, but I would recommend you try a single recipe first so you can see how they tend to start setting up.
  6. After all the holly wreaths are out on the waxed paper, add 1-2 cinnamon decors to simulate the holly berries. (I recommend leaving off the cinnamon candies for small children).
  7. Let the wreaths sit for about 1-2 hours to dry a bit. Then store in a container on waxed paper. You can make several layers in your container.
    Hint: if the bottom of the wreath seems too sticky after letting them sit, then lift them off the waxed paper with a spatula and dip the bottom into more powdered sugar before you store them.
