omg!!! this is the best recipe ever! i am a professionel chef but i never tasted anythig so delish! yum!yum!
This recipe was overall a little too sweet. So i added 1 1/2 tbsp of sugar instead. Less cornsyrup should be added too so that the cookies could set in a shorter time.
I gave it 4 stars if the following changes are made: i let the mixture cool enough to add 1/2 c mini semi sweet chocolate chips without them melting, yet still pliable enough to be able to form into balls, then rolled in additional *toasted* coconut. When I tried to drop it by spoonfuls originally, it wanted to come apart. I also crushed the cornflakes a little bit so I didnt have a bunch of huge flakes. This also helped the balls adhere better.
I remember these from when I was little - super simple and easy to modify. You can substitute chocolate, dried fruit and other nuts. After spooning onto the wax paper, they are easy to shape into balls. If it is humid, they may stay sticky, but will taste just as good.
Delicious!!!!!! very easy, followed recipe exactly, too addictive!!! as they cool, easy to mold into more ball shape too.
Delicious! Substituted Special K cereal for the cornflakes. Everything else exactly as written. Cooked as directed and everything came out great! Going to try again with Total cereal.
Was pleasantly surprised by the overal result of this recipe! It took such a short time to complete and turned out quite tasty.
Would be better if they were crispier though. But love the coconut flakes. Made quite a big difference to the taste.
These are really simple but tasty to make! I didn't have any walnuts and after trying one decided to salt the rest for a sweet and salty treat. Kids love them!
