Great recipe when you have a lot of extra cereal lying around, even if it isn't all cornflakes. Very simple to make, and you don't even have to heat up the kitchen. Sometimes I even top them with a mixture of melted semisweet, butterscotch and vanilla chips, mixed with a drop of vanilla and orange extracts (just an extra touch, but a nice chocolate kick to these treats).
Delicious! I used Grape Nuts Flakes instead of cornflakes. Next time I'm going to add some peanuts.
These were so easy that it seemed like cheating. My daughter had 2 friends visiting and they both asked for the recipe.
