As long as I can remember, these were a tradition at home for Christmas. Similar to Rice Krispie treats except you use corn flakes and shape them into rings. They can then be decorated with red hots or sprinkles.


  • 1 Stick Margarine
  • 2 t. Vanilla
  • 45 Large Marshmallows (16 oz. Bag)
  • 1/2 bottle green food coloring (otherwise they are pale)
  • 8-9 cups corn flakes (about 12 oz)
  • Red hots or similar decoration


  • Melt 42-45 large marshmallows in heavy pot with 1 stick margarine.
  • Remove from heat
  • Stir in abt 2 t. vanilla and green food coloring (I think I use about half a bottle)
  • Stir in 8-9 cups of corn flakes
  • Turn out on buttered Reynolds Wrap and with buttery hands - shape into Christmas wreaths - decorate and enjoy.
