These were hard to rate, as they are very yummy candies! Love the taste of the glace fruit in these, and who wouldn't love Nutella??? The problem I had was with forming them, and again in getting them to set. I left the cornflakes whole, because it didn't say to crush them. First, I tried using a spoon to form and drop onto the parchment paper. But they didn't hold together at all. Next I tried using a small ice cream scoop, the kind I use for cookies. It worked better, except the candies had hollows and would fall apart once on the parchment. The taste is excellent, and I will make these again. But next time I will crush the cornflakes a bit to see if the smaller size helps the cookies adhere. I live in the tropics, so can't blame the recipe - but I did have to put them in the refrigerator to set. So if you live in a warm climate, make sure to place the parchment inside a cookie tray to make it easy to put in the fridge if you need to! Normally, I would give these a 4 star rating because of the prep problems, but hubby insists that from an eating standpoint, these are definitely a 5!!! Thanks for posting a very yummy recipe!
