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 mak...

These are really great if you're looking for a quick, easy treat. They are addicting though so beware! I am a marshmallow addict, so I threw in a few handfuls of mini marshmallows after everythi...

My family absolutely love these. We crushed 4 cups of cornflakes and it worked out great! Used a 9x9 pan for thicker bars. To dress them up, top with melted chocolate chips or melted canned c...
