This recipe is intriguing. I'm used to the venerable rice krispie treats using marshmallow, but mixing it with peanut butter is new to me. I think it would be a good combination. Do the corn flakes retain their crunch when mixed in like that? I know the rice krispies stay at least somewhat crunchy. I'm wondering if there are some other cereals that could also be used in that fashion. Definitely a recipe worth experimenting with.
