  • “My mom and grandma used to make these for my class when I was little and everyone always loved them!! Now I make the recipe all the time for potlucks or just for a little treat every now and then. They are so good and everyone seems to love them.”

  • “Even my Mom the dietician loved these.She said “Well, they’re quite delicious, but they’re not very healthy.”These are super good.”

  • “These are SO good. I have yet to meet anyone who didn’t love them. As another reviewer suggested, I tried Cheerios and they were easier to work with and still had the same crunch factor. Not so much like haystacks that way, but who cares? A good holiday treat that anyone can make in a hurry.”

  • “Thanks for the recipe! I remember making these when I was a kid. I tried using Cheerio’s instead of chow mein noodles. They were delicious!”

  • “I love this recipe & actually make it with generic brand corn flakes – still so yummy & way cheaper!”

  • “My mother substituted marshmellows for peanuts instead.The salty taste with the sweet was really good.Try it….”

  • “I’ve been making these for years! Quick, easy and great Christmas cookies!”

  • “These are great. Kids love them. They are really sweet, I can usually only hande one, but the flavor is so good. We usually make these at Halooween andthe kids call them, “Mashed Up Grasshoppers”. I know yucky name, but good treat!”

  • “The first time I had these was this past Christmas, my neighbor had made them. I thought they were very unique and tasty! I’m glad I found the recipe, they are so easy to make. I just made them and there’s not many left. Thank you!”
