Last year, Katie Jane brought these Christmas wreath cookies to my cookie party, and they were gone before all the guests had even showed up, that is what a big hit they were.
Katie veganized her family’s recipe, but when I veganized this Christmas Wreaths recipe from Epicurious, they were just as I remembered Katie’s. They are just Rice Krispie treats but with cornflakes and a hell of a lot of food coloring. Swap out the butter and marshmallows called for in the recipe with equivalent amounts of Earth Balance and Dandies, and follow the directions there and you’ll be in good shape. Just don’t make the same mistake I did, which was to assume that gel food coloring would be a good substitute for liquid food dye; it didn’t get anywhere near as dark as needed.
