Hey guys! This is Lauren, visiting again from Tastes Better From Scratch, and I’m excited to share one of our family’s favorite Christmas treats with you!
For as long as I can remember it’s been a tradition in our family to make these Cornflake Wreaths every year at Christmas time. I have the best memories of standing at the kitchen counter helping my mom and sister make them. My mom would spoon them onto parchment paper, my sister, Liz, would shape them into wreaths, and I would put the cinnamon candies on top.
We’d usually bring them with us to our large family Christmas party, but before we could load them onto a plate you could always count on my brothers to steal a few and devour them.
CHRISTMAS CORNFLAKE WREATHS
These are the perfect little treats for the holidays! They’re a lot like Rice Krispie treats, but they taste so much better! The cornflake, marshmallow, and cinnamon combination is delicious! Plus, they’re budget friendly, and kid-friendly. The whole family can enjoy making them together!
