Need a quick sugar fix? I love these bars. Super easy and quick to make. Crispy, chewy and yummy. They are very similar to Rice Krispy Squares, except they are made with corn flakes. Please refer to the note on the bottom of the page for an additional fun idea!
Corn Flake Crispies
1/2 Cup Butter
1 Pound (16 ounces) of Marshmallows
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
8 Cups Corn Flakes
Pan Spray or Extra Butter (for greasing the pan)
Step 1: Butter or grease a 9x13 cake pan with pan spray. Set aside.
Step 2: In large saucepan, melt butter over low heat.
Step 3: Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla extract.
Step 4: Add corn flakes cereal. Stir until well coated.
Step 5: Pour mixture into prepared cake pan and spread out evenly and pat down. Let stand for 15 minutes. Cut and serve. Store covered.
Note: This is the same basic recipe you would use to make Corn Flake Wreaths at Christmas-time. To do so, use the same above recipe. During Step 3, add 2 teaspoons of green food coloring. Skip Step 5. Instead, layout a large sheet of wax paper and using a 1/4 cup dry measuring cup coated with cooking spray, evenly portion the warm cereal mixture out onto the wax paper. Using buttered fingers, quickly shape into individual wreaths. Dot with cinnamon candies or small red M&Ms. Here is a picture I snapped before my daughter made the hole in the center on the two end wreaths. The recipe will make a dozen plus wreaths.
