My Mom used to make these for our after school snacks when it was getting close to Christmas.
Now that I have a little family of my own, we make these the day they get out of school, to celebrate the holiday break and Christmas.
If you can make Rice Krispie treats, then you can make these. They are SO easy, and the kids can even get involved.
They are fast, delicious, and very inexpensive to make.
What candies could I use as topping?
For this particular recipe, and the image show, we used red hots. I love the sweet cinnamon flavor, but my kids prefer Sixlets, or M&M’s.
We have also used sprinkles, frosting, etc. Really any fun and bright colorful topping, would work great for this recipe.
We also like to use a Twizzlers Pull and Peel to make a bow to put on the wreath.
Have fun with it, and let the kids pick out what they want to put on their wreath.
What other cereal could I use for this recipe?
I personally am not a fan of corn flake cereal. However, when it has all that sugary goodness on it, you really can’t tell that it is corn flakes.
However, if you want to switch it out for a different cereal, you most definitely can.
I have made these with cheerios before and they were so delicious. I also tried making these with coco puffs and frosted flakes, and both were delicious as well.
Because the coloring is so dark, you really can’t tell what cereal it is you are using, so if you have a favorite cereal that is brightly colored, don’t worry about it. It won’t show through anyway.
I think this recipe would also be delicious with some fruity pebbles, fruit loops, coco krispies, captain crunch, or any of your favorite cereals.
We just go for the corn flakes, because they best resemble the pine you see in wreaths.
