  3. The cereal makes me think that this was originally an American recipe but maybe not. Do you know where it came from? I’m a fan of the classic Rice Krispies treats made with cereal, melted marshmallow and butter.

    • I did a little bit of research and found that cornflakes were invented by John Harvey Kellogg, M.D. (February 26, 1852 – December 14, 1943) an American medical doctor in Battle Creek, Michigan, who ran a sanitarium using holistic methods, with a particular focus on nutrition, enemas, and exercise. He came up with the corn flakes with his brother, Will Keith Kellogg. So since cornflakes came originally from America I’m guessing someone over there made up the delicious honey joys recipe too 😊
