Cook corn syrup and sugar together in a large saucepan over medium heat, stirring to dissolve sugar. Bring mixture to a boil.
Remove from heat. Stir in peanut butter and food coloring; mix well.
Add cereal; stir until evenly coated.
Let mixture cool slightly. Coat hands with butter or cooking spray. Form mixture into 1 to 2-inch balls, then press to flatten, forming a disk.
Cut a circle out of the center using a paring knife or shot glass to create a wreath shape. Place on waxed paper.
Melt green candy melts over low heat, stirring constantly. Drizzle over each wreath and top with red nonpareils sprinkles in groups of 3 to resemble holly berries.
To make licorice bow: tie each each 6-inch strand of licorice into a bow.
Trim the the ends as necessary. Add licorice to wreath. Cool for 15 minutes.
