Because I've made these for over 40 years, I know that to try and form these into wreaths would be a lot of effort since these set up so fast. I just drop them into small, teaspoon size mounds. When my kids were young, they made the task of making these much easier--the extra set of hands to put the cinnamon candies on them were a real help! While I make these a bit differently, I write this review for those who are experiencing these stiffening up or hardening too fast. A little extra butter will take care of that. To 4 cups of corn flakes I use 1/3 c. butter and 32 marshmallows. For a brilliant green color, I use 1 tsp. of green food coloring, again for 4 cups of corn flakes. Finally, I add 1/2 tsp. each of vanilla and almond extracts for flavor. These have always been a family favorite and are a pretty and colorful addition to a Christmas cookie platter.
