  • 6 cups, Rice Krispies Cereal
  • 3 TBS, Butter (softened)

How to Make Rice Krispies Wreaths

  1. In a large glass mixing bowl, combine your marshmallows and softened butter and heat for 1 to 2 minutes or until your marshmallows start to get soft and puffy.
  2. Use your 1/4 teaspoons measuring spoon to mix in enough green food coloring to color your marshmallows green and stir well.
  3. Now mix in 3 cups of your Rice Krispies cereal, give it a quick stir with your tablespoon or large mixing spoon and mix in the other 3 cups.
  4. Scoop and press your red Rice Krispies into the bottom of a greased 9×13″  baking pan (I like to use a greased potato masher) and let set for about an hour.
  5. Use your larger scalloped cookie cutter to cut out as many circles as you can and use your smaller one to cut out the center.
  6. While your marshmallows are still sticky, press several red M&M’s all over the Rice Krispie Wreaths (if your having trouble with them sticking dip the back of the M&M’s into some frosting or melted chocolate before you press them onto the wreath).

And that’s it! I hope you and your family enjoy making these! I remember making them when I was in elementary school! This recipe truly stands the test of time and is one you will always come back to!

Can I make these wreaths with corn flakes?

Yes! You can make the wreaths using corn flakes instead of rice krispies. Use the same amount of corn flakes (6 cups). The corn flakes will naturally squish some while you are stirring them into the marshmallow mixture. This will make the edible wreaths more solid to hold once they’re set.
