How to Make Cornflake Wreath Cookies

 

Tips Tricks and FAQs

  • If cinnamon candies are too spicy for the kids, you can swap them out for mini red M&Ms. 
  • If you want to make sure these are a perfect circle you can use a round cookie cutter. Just spray it first and add the cornflake mixture in the middle. Shape them around the inner part of the cookie cutter (be sure to leave a hole in the middle) and then lift up the cookie cutter.

Storage

You want to let these completely set before storing. Once set, add them to an airtight container and store at room temperature. If you are going to layer them on top of one another, be sure to add a piece of parchment paper in between the layers. These will last for about 1 week.

  3. Pour the melted marshmallows into the corn flakes. Stir gently until well coated.
