I have to admit that when it comes to Cornflakes or Rice Crispies I have to say I’m team Cornflakes but I seen this recipe and decided I need to be team crispies for a change. To be honest they are both crispy and crunchy right?

I like the fact that this recipe is super easy and no-bake, win win!

The only thing I would say is you have to work super fast once the mixture is created as it does harden very quickly. So have your tin lined and ready!
