    Your recipe was so beautiful and so adictive! I made it crunchy and non sticky by not adding as much butter and adding some bran too!  -  17 Feb 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Found these easy to make and really enjoyed the nutty taste and texture. I read how some of the reviewers found it too sticky, so I let it boil a bit longer then suggested to make it harden more. It was a bit greasy when first out of the oven, but when somewhat cooled, cut them up and put in a container. The next day they were hard without being too hard. Perfect. Also used "Trail Mix" (mixture of nuts-eg. peanuts, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, almonds, etc.) instead of hazelnuts and thought this worked really well. Will definitely make these again!!  -  01 Aug 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Well, they did turn out OK. I modified it a little. Used a commercially prepared muesli mix and added 1/2 cup of self-raising flour. Turned out OK. Reduced the amount of honey to 1 tbs. This in a way reduced the stickiness. Refrigeration is a must for this bars. In the humid tropical heat here, they became very soft and attracted insects of every kind. First the ants came then the fruit flies then finally the spiders who came and ate up the earlier insects I used airtight bags to carry them around.  -  16 Jun 2000  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
