Cornflakes – 1 and 1/2 cups
Marshmallows – 1 cup loosely packed

Vanilla Essence – 1/4 tsp
Green Food color – few drops
Red Candies – few(I used M and M)

- Allow it to cool for 2mins.Scoop out using a icecream scooper.In a tray lay butter paper, add a scoop.
- Dip your fingers in water,use your fingers to form wreath shape by making a hole in the center.It may stick so dip your fingers in water once then shape.Do not use more water then the cornflakes will become soggy.Make small wreaths.
- Then take your candies and just press it to each wreath,it will stick to it.Chill it for an hour and enjoy!
- For replacing marshmallows but you can try with honey and brown sugar make a sauce then add cornflakes just like how we do for bars.
- Make the wreaths when the mixture is still warm else it will set in the pan itself making it impossible to shape it.
- You can use any candy, you can even use gems.
- Add the cornflakes only after marshmallows is fully melted.
- Do not use more water,just dip your hands once then shape it quickly.If you dip in water more then cornflakes will become soggy.
- You can even substitute cornflakes with ricekrispies
- You can even use a bundt pan to make a big wreath.
