These are the best PB Nuggets I have ever eaten! I made these at midnight yday and had planned to save them for Mother's day for my mom. But, these were gone in seconds(thanks to the unexpected guests we had today)! I will have to make these in plenty from now on, seeing the way they vanished off the cookie plate, I kept wondering why didn't I make these delights before! They are so good. I must mention here that I used an additional 1/4 cup of corn flakes and an additional 1/2 cup of coconut. Thank you for sharing the recipe, it is just GREAT!

I just finished making these, what a great recipe, so easy, and they look and taste really great. I think I must have been making them a bit too big, because my son comes in and pops one in his mouth, and is still chewing several minutes later. You know how peanut butter sticks to the roof of your mouth? Well it did, so he tries a drink of milk and that didn't work... Then we all start laughing and he is there laughing and chewing... I resized the ones I had made to a smaller size (don't want this happening to my guests!) and made all the rest tinier as well. In the smaller size they don't seem to have this effect. Thanks for the great diabetic recipe.

Fantastic!!! Every time I make it I get asked for the recipe. One person called them crack balls because she said they were addicting. I made them with chunky and creamy peanut butter and I thought the chunky peanut was much easier to work with.

Yummy and easy! I made them with Honey Bunches of Oats Cereal. I also used natural peanut butter with honey already in it, so I ended up halving the amount of honey the recipe called for and they were the perfect amount of sweetness. I would think they would also be good with nuts instead of coconut. Great recipe!

well these are going to be keepers. so easy to make. and fast and yummy and good for you. i used some end remains of honey bunches of oats cereal and they turned out perfect.. great to use any kind of cereal in and way healthier than a lot of the peanut butter balls you see out there. i took the advice of other posters and doubled it first time. glad i did. will make again and again. thank you and my husband thanks you

I didn't have any cornflakes, but I did have Grape Nuts. Oh, was this good! I made it with honey b/c that was all I had, and you can really taste it. I also used reduced fat pb. I might try 1 T confectioners sugar next time instead of honey or syrup, just to see if the balls come out a little stiffer. But these are a delicious and not-too-unhealthy snack to keep on-hand.

My friends ate the whole batch. Which wasn't hard because it doesn't make much. I will be doing lots of multiples of this. I also added more peanut butter than called for and needed more cornflakes than called for.
