Christmas Wreaths

Christmas Wreaths look too festive. My mom would make these during the holidays, and if you have ever made rice Krispie treats, you can make these fun little cookies. These are made with corn flakes, marshmallows, butter, and red hots.

Christmas Wreaths made with Corn Flakes

Every year during the holidays we feel compelled to make cookies. I have a friend of mine that most years she makes massive amounts of cookies, and I love to go over there, and while I am put to work, I also get in trouble for feeding as many cookies as toddlers like to eat. Toddlers love cookies. For me it isn’t the holidays unless you have some 7 layer cookies, in my house we always called them Hello Dolly cookies, why? I don’t know. Pecan Sandies are my next runner up when it comes to holiday cookies.
