Found these in a magazine. (I think) Great for kids to make with help.
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup light corn syrup
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1 (12 ounce) box corn flakes (about 8 cups)
- In a large saucepan, mix sugar and corn syrup and bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Boil for 1 minute.
- Remove from heat and blend in peanut butter.
- Add cornflakes, stirring gently to coat.
- Working quickly, drop mixture in 1/4 cup lumps, 2" apart onto countertop lined with waxed paper.
- Using fingers, shape each cookie into rounded mound as necessary.
- Let stand at room temp for 20-30 minutes to set.
- Store in airtight container at room temperature.
These were gone within 48 hours, which must mean they're good because there were only two or three people eating them! We have a similar recipe in my family, only ours is chocolate instead of peanut butter... this went over well, though. VERY peanut buttery -- maybe because I hate measuring out gooey things like peanut butter, so I guesstimated, and I may have put in too much. I couldn't find a 12-oz box of corn flakes, so I used 8 cups. I got twenty good-sized cookies. Thanks for posting!
