Do the cornflake wreaths contain butterscotch? Marshmallow?

One of these years I should buy the ingredients and make the time to make my mother's molasses cookies.

The wreaths are super easy to make, and use marshmallow.

You just melt one stick of butter and melt one bag of mini-marshmallows.  You can do this on the stove top or in the microwave.   Once they're melted, mix in green food coloring, and then pour over 4 cups of corn flakes.


The cookies were a BIG hit at my work today.

I had 5 platters at the beginning of the day, and by 4:00 when I left, there were only 3 paper plates worth left.

Here is what the finished products looked like.










These are the Corn Flake Wreaths.   They are similar to Rice Krispy Treats, melted marshmallow and butter mixed with corn flakes cereal.






On the left are Peppermint Candy Cane cookies.  Sugar cookies mixed with Peppermint extract and sprinkled with peppermint sugar.  On the right are Pumpkin Spice cookies, some unfrosted, some frosted with cream cheese frosting.







Last pic.  The platter on the left has two kinds of cookies.  Chocolate Chip cookies with dark, milk, and white chocolate chips.  Then there are Hot Cocoa cookies.   Chocolate cookies with hot cocoa mixed in, with chocolate chips and marshmallows.    On the right, Sugar Cookies with a vanilla icing on top.

I do have a 'cheat' for the wreaths.  According to the recipe you are supposed to hand-form them into wreaths while still hot.  This can be difficult to do.

I went out and found a "molten lava cake pan".  You use to to make lava cakes, and looks similar to this donut pan.  I simply spoon the cereal/marshmallow mixture into the forms (after spraying it lightly with Pam), gently press the cereal in to make sure it will stick together, add the decorations, and then place them into the freezer for 5 - 10 minutes.  Then, I just use a spoon to gently pry the wreaths out.
