The key here is to finely crush the cornflakes and nuts. I use my hand cranked nut chopper and just put them all thru it together. The combinations on this are endless, we like maple flavoring with pecans or walnuts, but use almond or vanilla extract with almonds, or butter flavoring with peanuts! Enjoy using your imagination!
