Course: No-Bake CookiesDifficulty: Easy



No-bake cookies with marshmallows and cornflakes, colored and shaped into wreaths.


  • 1/2 cup butter or solid margarine for dairy-free version

  • 3 cups miniature marshmallows

  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract

  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 teaspoon green food color

  • 4 cups corn flakes

  • red hot candies or red mini M&Ms

  • silver dragées (optional, not pictured)


  • In a very large saucepan, melt butter, add marshmallows, stirring until all marshmallows are melted. Add extracts and food coloring; stir until it is a uniform green color. When mixture is smooth, add corn flakes; mix well but gently so as not to crush the cornflakes. Form into 3″ wreath shapes on sheets of waxed paper, decorate with red cinnamon candies or mini M&Ms and optional silver dragées. Let cool until solid.

A family favorite for years. Notice bakers: These are hard to form before the marshmallows set. Put a blob on parchment paper and maneuver a hole in the middle and work outwards They keep together better if they are slightly thicker.

Ive made these for yrs but we use red rasberry candies for the top the flavor is awesome

I loved to do this! They came out perfectly! Instead of using red hots, we used red mini M&M's, which were so much better. I can't wait to see the treats at the Cookie walk at my church! :D

Corn flakes are better than rice crispies due to the saltiness and it was a big hit with my kids!

This is an annual "must have" for us. However, since my kids won't eat redhot candies, we use the red mini-M&M's instead.
