For this year's holiday cookie exchange party, make these adorable and festive wreath cookies for all your friends and family to enjoy! We love these cookies because they are sweet and crunchy and wonderfully decorated. Perfect for any Christmas party, serve these cookies on a decorative platter and all your guests will sing your praises. Watch the video below to get the complete tutorial on how to make these jolly cookies.
Another great idea is to have your children help you make these for Santa Claus. Set these out on Christmas Eve and leave Santa a nice note. He can take a break from his busy night to enjoy the cookies and read your thoughtful note.
While these cookies are perfect for a Christmas party, we think they would be great at just about any time during the year. Simply change the food coloring, shape into round cookies and add different candies if you so choose! This is one quick and easy recipe you should keep in your back pocket all year round!
1/2 cup butter, plus 1 tablespoon.
10 ounces miniature marshmallows
1 teaspoon green food coloring
6 cups frosted or un-frosted cornflakes
Red cinnamon candies
Wax-paper covered cookie sheet
In a saucepan, melt 1/2 cup butter over medium heat.
Then, add marshmallows. Stir until melted. Then, remove from heat. Hint: be sure not to over heat the marshmallow mixture or it will burn.
Add food coloring to marshmallow mixture until it is thoroughly mixed in.
Then, add the corn flakes and stir until they are all completely coated.
Melt remaining butter in a small bowl in the microwave.
Use melted butter to make wreathes and place on cookie sheet covered in waxed paper.
Pipe 3 or 4 dots of vanilla frosting on each wreath and top with cinnamon candies.
Let them cool to room temperature, then place in an air-tight container for storage.
Ask the kids to do this skit for the family.
