My mom used to make these when I was little and I just love them. A word of caution -- don't make these on a very hot/humid day or they won't set properly. I tried to make them for an August picnic and had to refrigerate them for them to set, but a few minutes out of the fridge and they were melty. I still ate them. With a spoon but, otherwise, these are yummy.

These are just like those; think they were called nuts and bolts, with carmel and the chow mein noodles instead of corn flakes.

We're only 13 and 15-years-old and we made this, and it's really good, we first made it with chocolate instead of butterscotch, and it's really good for those people out there who love chocolate as much as one of us does! Thanks for letting us have this recipe!

Neat recipe! I didn't think they would set right, but 5 mins in the fridge did the trick. I used half pb chips and half semi-sweet chocolate chips. Yum!!:-) Love these! Hubby loved them too...said they tasted like an extra crunchy Crunch bar.:-)

Yummy and fast! I would reduce the cornflakes to 3 c. and make the crunches bite size. Put them in the fridge right away to set, and serve them cold. I didn't like them as much hot, but once we tried them right from the fridge, my husband and I were hooked.

Loved it! Couldn't be simpler. I followed the directions exactly, and instead of placing on waxed paper, I put them in mini muffin papers. Topped each with a robin egg for Easte,r and they are too cute. Will be making more for Easter day!

This is the recipe that one of my friend's moms used to make for us when she had a sleepover. We lived in Arkansas at the time and these were always kept in the refrigerator for us to eat.

I used to make this same recipe years ago. My sister found it and passed it along to the rest of us and we just loved it. The original recipe called for chow mein noodles, but we have used most any type of dry cereal. They all work great! It is such an easy recipe and is always a hit! Glad I found it again!
