Cornflake Christmas Wreath
This Cornflake Christmas Wreath is so festive and delicious! Made with corn flakes and melted marshmallows, this is everything you love about marshmallow treats all dressed up for the Holidays!
When I was growing up, this was one of my favorite Christmas treats. The marshmallow is sweet and gooey and is flavored with vanilla and almond extracts. The cereal mixture is shaped into a large wreath and makes a beautiful centerpiece on a dessert table. The mixture can also be shaped into individual wreaths.
The recipe calls for margarine, which is softer than butter at room temperature. This helps the cereal mixture retain its marshmallow gooeyness (I don’t think ‘gooeyness’ is a word, but you get the picture!).
When shaping the cereal mixture, it’s helpful to coat hands with cooking spray so the mixture doesn’t stick. After shaping into a wreath, decorate with cinnamon imperials. Once the wreath sets up, cut slices to serve.
This Cornflake Christmas Wreath is a delicious, festive, no-bake treat that makes a great addition to a holiday dessert table.
