6 toffee bars (McIntosh if possible)
6 tbsp butter
2 tbsp cream
Break bars into pieces, add butter and cream and heat over low heat until well blended.
1 tsp vanilla
Pinch of salt
5 c cornflakes
2/3 c coconut
Mix well. Drop by tablespoon onto wax paper. With fingertips lightly coated with softened butter, press ingredients together a wee bit and allow them to set. These are for too good and freeze well.

I did not break the bars, just added the first 3 ingredients in a bowl and then into the microwave, on a very slow and low setting, and keep stirring and repeat till well blended.
I did not have cornflakes, so used a 500g box of Morning crisp cereal (Crisp cereal clusters with flaked almonds, roasted hazelnuts, chopped Brazil nuts and chopped pecan nuts) but you can in fact use anything you prefer.
