Cornflake Penuche

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by mandabears

This is a very crispy and crunchy candy. The trick to this candy is to keep the candy in the pan, covered loosely with wax paper for 2 days before you eat it. If you try it too soon, it will be tough and chewy.

Delicious and wonderful. I made it just as described, and it was a hit! The next batch I added a small pinch of Kosher salt to counter the sweetness. Both batches were great. I can see adding chocolate chips or coconut to boost the flavor. All around a great recipe Corn Flake Candy!
