I have cornflakes, I have butter, I have syrup and sugar. Seems a bit extravagant to make up the quantities as I go along and risk sucking the lot through a big straw.

ooooohhh, i sooooooooooooo wanna know this too, but i have no chocolate. You should chop up some mars bars and melt them and stir it all in together and put in a tray and chill baby chill. Ooooh calorific!!!
Sorry, got a bit excited there at the thought of mars bar crispie cake. mmmmmmmmmmmmmm

Oh no, I just want to make golden ones, not brown ones!

My mother used to make these by melting slabs of toffee (Bluebird - don't know if it still available) and adding cornflakes/rice krispies to that. I think you will need to cook sugar, butter, golden syrup into a toffee mixture.

the ancestral recipe I have goes:

4oz toffees
2oz marshmallows
4oz marg
1 level tbsp honey
6oz cornflakes and/or rice crispies

Melt toffees, marshmallows, marg & honey, stir in flakes & crispies, press into greased swiss roll tin & chill

Good lord, I'm not wasting toffee on the kids! (Toffee is my downfall, better than chocolate any day.) Looks like I'm just going to have to invent it as I go.
