    CoffeeB's Note:

    This was a favorite of my grampa's and so it has special meaning. I always think of him when I make them. They're just a great little treat to have on hand and also freeze well to pull out at any time.

      We enjoyed this recipe but I think I would like it better without the crust. I used frosted flakes in the mixture instead of corn flakes. Unlike Nott, I didn't wait for the crust to cool so mixture did not spread easily. (Hungry kids...) Made for 123 Hits

      This is a great tasting combination, but the recipe is a little incomplete. I was not sure if I should pour the hot peanut butter mixture over the cooled cookie crust or the hot cookie crust. I decided to wait until the cookie cooled. It worked fine. Would probably work fine on a hot crust too. How do you do it? I used to make something called Christmas chuckles which was just the peanut butter, butterscotch mixture with a bit more cornflakes and dropped into clumps on wax paper. No cookie crust. I like the idea of having it on a crust. It is like a double treat. Thank you for posting.
