With only a few ingredients, you can transform shredded wheat cereal into these whimsical holiday wreaths. Let the kids help shape and decorate them.

Ingredients

  • 1 (12-oz.) package vanilla candy coating, broken up
  • Green paste food coloring
  • 2 1/2 cups coarsely crushed mini shredded whole wheat cereal biscuits (we tested with vanilla creme-flavored Frosted Mini Wheats)
  • Mini candy-coated chocolate pieces, red cinnamon candies, swirled holiday white morsels

How to Make It

  1. Microwave vanilla candy coating in a medium bowl at MEDIUM (50% power) 3 minutes, stirring after every minute. Stir in desired amount of food coloring. Add cereal, stirring gently to coat. Drop cereal mixture by heaping tablespoonfuls onto wax paper; shape each spoonful into a wreath. Decorate with assorted candies. Let cookies stand about 30 minutes until firm.
