Cereal Wreaths

For a fun touch on these sweet no-bake wreaths, embellish them with a piped icing bow after they've firmed up.

It's time to munch and crunch!

  • 4-1/2 cups cornflakes
  • 1 cup miniature marshmallows
  • 1/3 cup chopped pecans or almonds
  • 1/3 cup golden raisins
  • 1/3 cup dried tart red cherries
  • 1 pound vanilla-flavored candy coating, cut up
  • Purchased frosting (optional)
  • Instructions:

1. Line a large cookie sheet with foil or waxed paper; set aside.

2. In a large mixing bowl combine cornflakes, marshmallows, nuts, raisins, and cherries.

3. In a heavy medium saucepan melt candy coating over low heat, stirring often. Pour melted candy coating over cereal mixture. Stir gently until well coated.

4. Drop mixture by 1/4-cup measure onto the prepared cookie sheet. Flatten mixture slightly to form circles about 2 inches wide. Using the handle of a wooden spoon, make a 3/4-inch hole in the center of each cookie, spreading the cookies to about 3 inches in diameter. When cool, decorate with frosting, if desired. Makes about 15 cookies.
