Very NUMMY, and easy to make!! I only had cornflakes cereal, and I did not have chocolate chips or butterscotch chips. So I made the basic recipe with the cornflakes and adjusted the topping to be about 1/2 cup of left over vanilla frosting melted with 1/2 cup of peanut butter for a super peanutty flavor. I will definately be making these again!! Thank for a great recipe!!

Loved these as a child and still make them now for my husband and I. A pan doesn't last long around here. Still very good without the chocolate topping.
