It’s another hot one here in Tennessee, but no worries, I’ve got another great no-bake recipe for you =). I had a box of cornflakes that I wanted to use up and so I googled around a bit. Most of the recipes I found had peanut butter and I really wanted something different. Eventually, I stumbled across this recipe and I’m so glad that I did! They’re really simple to make although you will need a candy thermometer. Be sure to cut them into small squares because they are very sweet – almost candy-like- but very tasty. You don’t necessarily have to use coconut and pecans. I’m sure other nuts would be delicious too but use whatever you have on hand. Make these bars and then head outside to soak up some sun! It’s a beautiful day =). Enjoy!
