Kids of all ages love these. Perfect for summertime, no baking for this recipe. This is also great made with same amount of crispy rice cereal in place of the cornflakes. Can also be made in a 13 x 9-inch baking dish.

My family devoured these! They are so yummy! I used Wheaties because we didn't have any cornflakes around. I will be making these again!
