    This sounds so good! I wonder if you could replace the corn flakes with another cereal that is gluten free (i.e. Rice Chex) to make this a Gluten Free recipe? Would the Rice Chex hold up or do you think they would get soggy?

      I just made them with gluten free corn flakes, and another batch with gluten free whole o’s (Cheerios)(Natures Path Organic cereals). They turned out great and so easy for the kids to make.

    These were also one of my most favorite treats when I was a little girl. my grandparents used to make them form me. They are my brothers favorite to this day. That was nearly 50 years ago. I have never found anyone that has ever had them before and I have made them for many groups of people. Makes me think it is about time I make some, it has been awhile.

    Has anyone ever used whey protein in their recipe? My boyfriend loves these and is wanting me to figure out a way to make them using his protein. He also was worried about the amount of sugar used in making them.

    Grandma made Black Jacks over sixty years ago. Unfortunately I lost and forgot the recipe years ago. The recipe consisted of cornflakes, Camp liquid coffee – cannot remember the rest. Any ideas please?
