Corn Flake "Rice Krispies" Wreaths

These Holly Wreaths are one of my favourite holiday treats to make because they remind me of when I was little. :) They're only slightly more work than Rice Krispie Squares which is a great bonus- and they're fun for kids to help with, too!

  2. Can these be put in the freezer til Christmas time?

    1. Hi Sara, I have never tried freezing these but I just did a search online about freezing rice krispie squares (which are a similar idea to these) and found that they can be frozen, so maybe it would be fine! Here's the link I found with details: http://www.livestrong.com/article/552760-how-to-keep-marshmallow-krispie-treats-fresh-longer/

    2. Thank you. I did put them in the freezer and thank goodness I did.... they would have all been eaten if I didn't! Super yummy and cute! Thanks for sharing the recipe :)

    Not only do these wreaths look cute but they're easy to make and from your ingredients I'm guessing they're yummy too.
