OK here's the problem with the recipe... you need to crush enough cereal (3 cups uncrushed) to equal 1 cup of crushed cereal. Whatever you do - don't end up with 3 cups of crushed cereal! We made these with 1 cup of crushed it was delicious! It was a cross between a brownie and a chocolate chip cookie. YUMMY! Read More

I didn't know what to expect from this recipe since I received it long ago and am just trying it now. And along with the negative reviews I considered not finishing making them; since I didn't read them until after I started mixing them. But I'm glad I did because there are good. They are very tasty and the texture is a cross between crispy and brownielike. I used semi-sweet chocolate baking squares since that's all I had. I'm thinking that perhaps the nay-sayings might have interpretted the recipe wrong. In the ingredients it should say "3 cups Frosted Flakes crushed to 1.5 cups". Perhaps some people thought it was 3 cups of crushed flakes since that is how it reads here. But my original recipe words it correctly. Other than that I followed everything exactly and my family is enjoying eating them right now. Read More

I'm gonna do a big no-no and rate it after I changed the recipe. I used corn flakes instead of the sugar frosted cereal and m&ms and just stirred them in instead of melting chocolate. SUPER good! Good enough that you can change them up and they're still good!:) Sorry for peeving people. Change isn't always bad. Read More

I am SO excited to find this recipe here. I love to make things for people that they haven't had and haven't been able to find in forever. My uncle was telling me about these cookies he had as a kid so I went in search of the recipe and here it is! I'll update right after I make a batch. Thanks so much! Read More

I just made these cookies today - They are fabulous! I had corn flakes that were on the verge of stale instead of frosted flakes so I added an additional tablespoon of sugar - probably didn't really need it! They were awesome warm from the oven and just as good when the cooled off - moist and chewy with a little crunch from the cornflakes. This recipe will definitely be added to my recipe box. Read More
