Hidden Mickey Christmas Corn Flake Wreaths | A Disney Mom's Thoughts

One Christmas treat I had never heard of until this year is Corn Flake Wreaths.  I had a friend talk about them and then I found them all over Pinterest.  As soon as I saw them, I knew I wanted to try them... but I had to add a Disney twist to them!  The Hidden Mickey Corn Flake Wreath was born (at least in my house)!

1/3 cup butter
5 cups miniature marshmallows
1 tsp green food coloring
6 cups corn flakes
Handful of red candies (cinnamon candy, nonpareils, or red pearls)

Measure 6 cups of corn flakes into a large bowl. Melt the butter in a large saucepan over low heat. Once the butter is melted, add 5 cups of marshmallows (I would suggest more) and stir continuously until completely melted. Stir in the green food coloring.

Pour melted marshmallows into the large bowl with the corn flakes or pour the corn flakes into the marshmallows.  Either way will work. Stir until well coated.

On your kitchen counter, lay spoonfuls of the corn flake/ marshmallow mixture onto parchment paper. Spray your hands with cooking spray and use your fingers to shape each corn flake blob into an individual wreath. Top each wreath with red candies.

Making a Hidden Mickey is super easy!  Make the wreath first. Then make two smaller wreaths the same way and press them together.  If you are more creative than I am, find a way to use the candy to make a bow for a Hidden Minnie!
