A simple recipe to make tasty festive rings to give as gifts or use as decorations.
- 200g miniature marshmallows
- ½ teaspoon almond extract (optional)
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
- 125g cornflakes
- Sprinkles to decorate
- In a generous sized pan melt the butter gently and add the marshmallows, stirring until both are smoothly combined.
- Take the pan off the heat and stir in the almond and vanilla extract.
- Add the cornflakes, gently crushing and mixing well so all covered in the creamy goo!
- Pull out clumps of sticky cornflakes the size of a small satsuma, squish it down into a disc on the baking parchment, then make a hole in the middle to form a wreath shape, about 6cm in diameter.
- Alternatively, make any shape which you would prefer - you could make five little snowmen to support the counting rhyme activity or mould into various shapes if your child is learning the names of the different shapes!
- Once you have made 2 or 3 wreaths/snowmen/shapes, scatter them with the sprinkles before they start to dry, or else they will not stick.
- Continue making more until all the cornflake mixture is finished.
- Leave for about 2 hours to cool and firm up you could thread a ribbon through to use as decorations or give as presents!
