No-Bake Holly Cookies are an easy Christmas cookie recipe for kids and a colorful addition to a Christmas cookie tray. They are fun to make and set quickly, too, so they are ready fast.

The cookies are a variation of traditional Rice Krispie Treats, but this recipe substitutes corn flakes for rice cereal.

The corn flakes imitate the leaves on a holly branch. Cinnamon candies mimic holly berries.

Prep time: 15 minutes
Set time: 20-30 minutes
Makes about 24-36 depending on how you scoop them
