Christmas Wreaths

These cute little wreaths are glorified Rice Krispy Treats, made with cornflakes instead of rice, green food coloring and red hots. The trick is to get the red hots to adhere. Which is tricky indeed.

I got the recipe from "Rose's Christmas Cookies", which I bought "used" off of Amazon for a pittance before other people were thinking about Christmas cookies, at which point the demand and price went up. As I've mentioned on here before, I've had excellent results ordering "used" books off of Amazon. Typically they aren't "used" at all; they are overstocks. But you have to read the condition description.

I am a big fan of Rose Levy Beranbaum, and you should consider reading her blog, because she is extremely generous with her time, answering readers' questions.

I'm a big fan too. I have two of her cookbooks but of course I just look at them and hardly ever actually COOK from them.

We used to make those often when I was a kid! I miss having my tongue turn green!

Thanks for reminding us of these! The picture really brought us back and we're going to give them a shot for the holidays...!

I love those things. They seem kind of like they'd be decorative over tasty, but they are both.

Auntie, I don't know if you remember Ruby from mine and David's wedding, but she used to make these Christmas wreaths for us when we were kids!

Good times!

Miss you,
