Ingredients

  • 6 Cups corn flakes
  • 1 Cup sugar
  • 1 Cup light corn syrup
  • 1 Cup creamy peanut butter

Directions

Place corn flakes in a large bowl; set aside.

Combine sugar and corn syrup in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the sugar dissolves. Immediately remove from heat; add peanut butter, stirring to combine.

Pour peanut butter mixture over corn flakes, and toss gently to combine, being careful not the crush the corn flakes.

Quickly drop by heaping tablespoonfuls onto a large baking sheet lined with parchment or wax paper. Allow cookies to stand at room temperature at least 30 minutes or until set. Store in an airtight container.

Peanut Butter Shopping Tip

If you're looking for a smoother texture in your finished product, try using confectioners' sugar (also known as 10x sugar) instead of granulated sugar.

Peanut Butter Cooking Tip

Think beyond cakes and pies – fruits like peaches, pineapple, and figs are excellent grilled – brush with melted butter or wine and sprinkle with sugar and spices for a dessert that you can feel good about.
