Nigella Christmas Cornflake Wreaths

This is a Nigella recipe which is simple yet effective. It's a fun project to do with the kids and they will absolutely love these as it's sweet and crunchy and cute! The Christmas sprinkles add a lovely festive touch. It's a no bake recipe that can be made up to a week ahead. It will also keep in the freezer for 3 months.
