Gluten free Christmas Wreaths


Santa’s hats sugar cookies !!!

Here is how to make them …..

Gluten free Christmas Wreaths


 ½ cup of butter or non-dairy butter spread

1-bag of gluten free mini marshmallows or 30 large marshmallows

1-1/2 tsp of green food coloring

1 tsp pure vanilla extract

4 cups of Corn flakes 

( I used gluten free Kellogg’s Special K flakes)

2 tbsp cinnamon red hot candies


Melt butter(I used non-dairy butter spread) in a large saucepan over low heat. Add marshmallows, and cook until melted, stirring constantly. 

Remove from heat, and stir in the food coloring, vanilla, and cornflakes (GF Special K).

Quickly drop heaping tablespoonfuls of the mixture onto waxed paper, and form into a wreath shape with lightly greased fingers or I used a mini donut pan . Immediately decorate with red hot candies. Place in the refrigerator to chill and set , store in an airtight container.

Gluten free Santa’s hats sugar cookies


Store bought Gluten free Sugar cookies- Enjoy Life Sugar Crisp (Gluten, Dairy & Soy free)

24 miniature marshmallows (Make sure they are Gluten free)

½ cup red candy sprinkles or red sugar

White chocolate chips morsels


Dip top one-third of each cookie into melted white chocolate. Place dipped cookies on waxed paper-lined surface. Sprinkle three-fourths of the coating with red sprinkles or sugar, leaving small borderof white at bottom to look like a hat. 

(Mine are not perfect)

Place marshmallow on side of each hat.

 Allow to set completely, about 1 hour.

All these cookies would even make Santa jolly so make sure you leave some cookies out for good

 old St Nick on Christmas Eve…lol
