Make sure you use 2c. cereal crushed, not 2c. of crushed cereal! I lowered the oven temp. to 325 deg. and that was perfect. Next time I will cut back on the amount of sugar.

My mother made these when I was a child and they are indeed the original and delicious.

I used Corn Chex since we are a gluten free family. I also used 3 egg whites instead of two. They were super yummy!

These were really good, I like that they didn't spread out much while cooking. I also liked the light texture to these for something different.
