This Christmas Wreath Cookies recipe is a perfect recipe to make with the kids for the Christmas Holiday. This cookie recipe is pretty easy to make but can get a little messy during assembly thanks to the melted marshmallows.

The only part of this recipe that might not be kid-safe is the marshmallow and cornflake mixture might be a little too hot to handle for little hands. The mixture must be handled when hot because as the marshmallows cool they will begin to stiffen up.

My mom has been making these wreath cookies for almost 50 years now. One tip she gave me was to grease your hands before you handle the marshmallow mixture. This will prevent the mixture from sticking to your hands.

Something else I learned making these cookies is that fresh marshmallows melt much faster than a package of marshmallows previously opened.

If you don’t plan on eating all the cookies at once, you can refrigerate them. The marshmallow will harden but will still be delicious. I suppose you can freeze them as well but they taste so good that I doubt you will need to freeze or refrigerate them.

So what do these bad boys taste like? I think you can compare them to Rice Krispy Treats. But with a different texture from the corn flakes. You can decorate them with whatever you have on hand. Or even make a bow using licorice.
