Christmas Wreath Treats

                             " Merry Christmas! "
     Don't these cheerful Christmas Wreath Treats just put you in the holiday spirit?!! They are enamored!! No bake Christmas wreath treats made with corn flakes and marshmallows! These only takes 20 minutes to make!! You only need a handful ingredients for these Christmas Wreath Treats- butter, corn-flakes, marshmallows, green food color, vanilla extract, red candies..:) While these treats aren't difficult to make, the dough is super extremely sticky which can be little tricky to shape into wreaths. But after some trials and errors, I found the best way to do this was to pack the cornflakes mixture into greased measuring cup, turn into a cookie sheet, and then wet your fingers or coat them with cooking spray to form the hole in the middle of wreath. You'll want to add the red candies right away so that they adhere while the mixture is still tacky. They are really fun to make and even more fun to eat!!:)

    Today's post is a special because not only it's about holiday or Christmas recipe post but also because I'm going to share this post with my the dearest blogger friend, Pushpita's blog Ei Gi Chakhum as a Holiday Season Guest Blog Post... Now, a short and sweet introduction about P(Pushpita)(I called her P:).-- An Economist by qualification, a freelance writer by profession, a homemaker, a mother and last but not the least a food enthusiast.

Thank you P, for inviting me to write a Holiday Season Guest Post and I wish you good luck for your coming up bright future..
 Let's get started with our awesome Christmas Wreath Cookies' Recipe,,,


Ingredients:
1 stick butter (1/2 cup)
1 bag of mini marshmallows (10.5 oz)
Green food coloring
54cups corn flakes cereal
Mini red chocolate candies (I used m&ms)
Few Twizzler's pull and peels for the bows
Method:
* Line 2 baking sheets with silicone baking mats or parchment paper.
* If using twizzler’s pull and peels to make bows, assemble the bows now. You can place a baking sheet on top of the bows to keep them from coming apart.
* In a medium pot, melt the butter and marshmallows over medium heat, stirring occasionally until the marshmallows are melted.
* Add in green food coloring until you have your desired green color.
* Pour the melted marshmallows over the corn flakes, mixing with a spatula until all the corn flakes are covered.
* To form the wreaths, I found it easiest to spray my hands with a little bit of cooking spray, then take a handful of the corn flake mixture and form it into a ball.
* Use the palm of your hand to flatten the ball into circle.
* Next use your finger to poke a hole through the middle of the circle and reshape as needed until you have a wreath shape.
* Place on the lined baking sheet and add the chocolate candies right away while the marshmallows mixture is still sticky. Add a twizzler bow if desired
* Place the Christmas wreaths in the refrigerator for 20-30 minutes to set. 
* Remove from the fridge, serve and enjoy. Store in an airtight container.
*Enjoy!!
               Merry & Bright Christmas to all my reader!!
