    Easy to follow instructions. When rolling the dough in the Special K, after the first one, I kind of crunched the rest of it so the cereal pieces weren't so big. I ended up using almost twice as much for coating as listed (maybe 'cause I crunched it?) The only thing I would do different is cut back the sugar to maybe half; the sugar plus the sweetness of the Special K was a little too much for me. I will be making these again! Thank you for sharing.

    Great recipe - the special K gives it a different texture and that nice crunch. Easy recipe and fast. Thank you!

    Love 'em! My daughter found the recipe here on the Zaar last night and whipped up a batch this afternoon. The whole family is sitting here watching me type and in between bites, offering helpful descriptive slang: "mad tasty" ?!? Thank you for posting, Beeks!

    I liked this recipe because it was different. I like the texture and crunch you get from rolling the batter in the cornflakes. I did not use Special K. I used corn flakes that I already had on hand and they were really good.


I'm Native American and live on a reserve. I love any thing that has to do with food from recipe collecting to grocery shopping. I'll try just about any food once. Right now I work in a sports store so when I'm not busy I'm always here on the Zaar.I have a lot of cookbooks that I've collected over the years but I don't use them much anymore because I'd rather do recipes here!
