More sugar and brown sugar might have made them a little better.

I had to make the syrup using 1/4 cup corn syrup, 1/4 cup maple syrup, cinnamon sprinkles, vanilla sprinkled

First time making these in any fashion and they were okay, maybe due to my lack of experience here but they weren't as soft as I thought they would be and had an interesting flavor. I would like to know how much syrup to save

Excellent recipe. I added marshmallows on the top though. Only difference and it came out great.
