Wonderful!! I wish I had read the reviews first, because I, too, found that the recipe didn't make enough for a 13x9x2" pan. Next time, I will add another cup of cornflakes (4 total), and press into a 9" pan. Thanks for the recipe!! -- I just made these for the 2nd time. I used a 9" pan (worked much better!), and added 4 cups cornflakes instead of 3. The bars fell apart and were hard to cut because there wasn't enough peanut butter mixture to hold them together. Stick with the original recipe, using a 9" pan.

I made this with bran flakes, which was nice, but the recipe assumes we all use processed peanut butter instead of the natural all-peanut kind. All-natural pb doesn't melt like the processed kind, and the mixture is less sticky. Next time I'd have to use more corn syrup, perhaps double.

Very easy and super yummy!!!! You might have to make two batches right away because they are soooo addicting. I love peanut butter so i put in a little more then a cup, it helps the bars stick together better. Also i have made this a number of times and each time i have used a different cereal. They all work the same i would just recommend that it is a plain cereal.

I found a similar recipe many years ago, in my son's, school, reading book. It was a mystery story and they were called, "Clue Cookies." (seems more a candy, I think) They actually gave the recipe and I just had to make them. (they were made using 1 cup of white sugar and 1 cup of white corn syrup, instead of the brown sugar) I will definitely try this version, though. Today, they are still a favorite of my kids and now my grandkids.

I use to make this when I was a kid we called them clue cookies?? My kids now enjoy them too. For chocolate & peanut butter lovers. Try adding 1/4c extra corn syrup, plus 1/2 cup of chocolate chips.

I poured about 1/2 cup melted chocolate over the top and spread it smooth. It was delicious and held the bars together a little better! I will make these again!

Very good. I used Special K vanilia & almonds instead of corn flakes. I just did a light crushing of the cereal. These were very good, but are actually more of a candy than a cookie. I would make these again.

Really good and super easy to make. Next time I may add some chocolate chips or drizzle with chocolate like other reviewers said. Make sure you really squish down the mixture when putting it into your pan, that way it will hold together better.
