There’s nothing that says Christmas holidays than yummy desserts and sweet treats! The smell of cinnamon and apples baking can literally make your mouth begin to water. I am sharing a recipe here of something that brings a lot of childhood memories to me! The first time I tasted these treats called Christmas Wreaths was in the second grade in elementary school. A classmate’s mother made them and brought them to school for our class Christmas party. Now, my mom makes them when my family has a holiday get together every Christmas. Enjoy this holiday recipe: Christmas Wreaths.
32 Large Marshmallows (or bag of small marshmallows)
6 TBSP Butter or spread
1/2 TSP Vanilla
1 1/2 TSP Almond extract
1 TSP Green food coloring
4 C. corn flakes
(small cinnamon candy) or cinnamon flavored sprinkles
Melt butter and marshmallows in microwave in a large ceramic bowl. Stirring and continue this until the mix is very soft and you can easily stir it.
Add Vanilla extract
Food coloring, and continue stirring.
Add corn flakes and gently mix the ingredients together. Place large spoon size amount of the mix on a wax sheet, and shape in a round and wreath like circle shape. Add pieces of red candy.
So if you find yourself in need of a little holiday cheer, no need to fret! Gather up the ingredients mentioned here and your utensils and stir up a batch of homemade holiday treats!
I hope you can create the same special memories of your own while making and baking for the holiday season as I do! Do you have a special holiday treat, cookies, cakes, that is connected to a Christmas memory to share? Please let me know in the comments!
