Holiday Treats: Christmas Wreath Cookies

Christmas Wreath Cookies by Cappuccino and WinePost two on my home CHRISTMAS BAKING!! Here is another of our favorite, and traditional, holiday treats: Christmas Wreath Cookies.

This is a small twist on the marshmallow-cornflake treats you can make for any time of year. You will need: a bag of large marshmallows, 1/2 cup butter (1 stick), about 4-5 cups of corn flakes, 1/2 tsp vanilla, 2 tsp green food coloring, cinnamon drops (or similar), parchment paper, and a cookie sheet.

Steps

Put the whole bag of marshmallows and the stick of butter in a microwavable bowl. Microwave about 2 minutes at a time, stirring in between. You want the marshmallows and butter to be smooth but not liquified. Add the vanilla and food coloring, stir in.

Christmas Wreath Cookies by Cappuccino and WineUse a spoon to place a 1-2 inch “blob” on the wax paper (on a cookie sheet). You want to shape them into a circle if possible. Note: You have to move quickly when placing them on wax paper because the marshmallow mix will get really sticky quickly (say that 5 times fast!). Last, place a cinnamon drop in the middle of each wreath. You can add several around in a circle if you want. Place in a cold area to harden.

Enjoy!
