    I recommend baking in the oven for 15mins once done, if you like them crunchy. Also, triple the ingredients if you actually want to get 24 out of it. One other thing, not nearly sweet enough with only 2tbsp of syrup for the whole lot ?

        We remade the recipe and filled 12 patty pans with the corn flake mix. They were light, airy and crunchy. Regarding sweetness, this is more a personal choice. We found the 2 Tbsp added a nice touch of sweetness but if people prefer a sweeter taste then we’ve made a note to add more.

    Very nice, but if you want to make anywhere near 24, triple all the ingredients. I got 8, and mine were not large by any stretch.
