I happen to be a rice krispie treat kind of girl…. but needed a change-up for Christmas. Well with Christmas Eve and Christmas approaching like nobody’s business…. I remembered the cute little cornflake cookies my great grandma used to make when I was a little girl. They looked like little dumps of green blobs, but were crunchy chewy good. I thought, why don’t I make that same type of concoction, but instead of dropping them in blobs, making them into a wreath shape. I decided to make a big cornflake sticky wreath that we could all dig into. Merry Christmas to you and your family.
