Christmas Wreath


Wishing you and your family a Blessed Christmas!

I came across this recipe by accident when I’m browsing the site on what treat to make for kids.  This was so easy to make but rather hard to shape it as they were too sticky.  I should have greased my fingers with some butter and this would probably make it easier to handle.   However, I managed to make 12 nice Christmas wreath and they were all well received by the kids.

The only thing I didn’t like it was the green colouring turned my teeth and tongue bit green.  But the kids find cool to have their teeth and tongue turn green ha! ha! ha!  I prefer a more vibrant green so in future if I’ll to make this again, I’ll reduce the colouring to 1 tsp.

This is my first time doing it.  I think it can be done in more creative way.  For example, can put M&M chocolate or drizzle some “snow” effect on the wreath.

I like these Christmas Wreath very much.  It’s crunchy and I love the flavour from the marshmallow.  When my nieces, nephew and their friends saw it, they were like “Wow!” and simply can’t wait to have a bit of it.

This recipe is adapted from AllReceipe.com and it has video to show the process of making.


½ cup of butter
30 pcs of marshmallow
1½ tsp of green colouring (I used Walton brand) – reduce the amount if you prefer a vibrant green
1 tsp of vanilla essence
4 cups of corn flakes
2 tbsp of cinnamon red hot candies – I replaced it with dried cranberries


(1)Melt butter in a large saucepan over low heat. Add marshmallows, and cook until melted, stirring constantly. Remove from heat, and stir in the food coloring, vanilla, and cornflakes.

(2)Quickly drop heaping tablespoonfuls of the mixture onto waxed paper, and form into a wreath shape with lightly greased fingers. Immediately decorate with red hot candies. Allow to cool to room temperature before removing from waxed paper, and storing in an airtight container. (and refrigerate)
