I got this recipe straight off of a box of cornflakes. It is really good and easy to make. Great for those bake sales. Cook time is per cookie sheet. For a larger cookie you will yield around 24 crunchies and should cook 20-22 minutes.

These crunchies were very good and easy to make. They went very well with everyone. I managed to make only 23 crunchies. Also, I had to bake these for a total of 22 minutes at 180C. Definitely a keeper!
