 Deck the halls... with wreaths and all... 

Many have a wreath hanging at least one place in the house. Many times there may be more than one wreath in the same building. Wreaths are one of the most popular decorations during the Christmas holiday. However, many will hang a wreath on the front door year round in different seasonal themes to welcome the visitor to your home.

Wreaths during the advent season are used to tell the story of the birth of Jesus Christ. Wreaths symbolize growth and everlasting life The wreaths circular shape represents eternity in that it has no true beginning and no end and is often used to simulate the circle of life. Christmas wreaths many times are made of evergreens whether real or fake and symbolizes growth and everlasting life.

  • 1 stick of butter (1/2 cup)
  • 30 large marshmallows
  • 6 teaspoons drops of green gel food coloring or 1 and 1/4 liquid green food coloring
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 5 cups cornflakes
  • 1 bottle of red hot candies or 1/2 cup red candy coated chocolates such as mini M&M's
  • cooking spray

Line a sheet pan with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.

Place the marshmallows and butter in a large bowl. Microwave in 30 second increments until melted.

Add the green food coloring and vanilla; stir until the marshmallow mixture is smooth.

Add the cornflakes to the bowl and gently stir to coat the cereal evenly with the marshmallow mixture.

Pack the mixture into a greased 1/4 cup measuring cup and turn out onto the sheet pan. Use your fingers to make a hole in the middle to form a wreath shape and decorate with red candies. It's easiest to form the wreath holes if your fingers are damp or coated in cooking spray.

Cool completely until firm and serve.
