Because I've made these for over 40 years, I know that to try and form these into wreaths would be a lot of effort since these set up so fast. I just drop them into small, teaspoon size mounds. When my kids were young, they made the task of making these much easier--the extra set of hands to put the cinnamon candies on them were a real help! While I make these a bit differently, I write this review for those who are experiencing these stiffening up or hardening too fast. A little extra butter will take care of that. To 4 cups of corn flakes I use 1/3 c. butter and 32 marshmallows. For a brilliant green color, I use 1 tsp. of green food coloring, again for 4 cups of corn flakes. Finally, I add 1/2 tsp. each of vanilla and almond extracts for flavor. These have always been a family favorite and are a pretty and colorful addition to a Christmas cookie platter.

My kids loved it. They expanded on the Christmas idea by making Christmas trees from the mixture and sprinkling it with colored candy sprinkles, gold and silver candy balls etc. Really added color to the Christas cookie platter.

My aunt use to make these when I was little so I gave them a try. They came together nicely. I followed the recipe exactly and put the bowl in a larger bowl with a little hot water to keep the mixture soft. They are very pretty on a cookie tray as they have a bright green color. They do not freeze or last long as they get a little mushy (at least in my house) so I would make these just a few days before Christmas or the event you are taking them to. Thanks for this recipe from my childhood!
