Recipe by Candy K

This was a treat we use to get in middle school at lunch time. My mother knew the school room lunch lady and gave her the recipe and I have been making them over 30 years and shared the recipe with my friends and co-workers. Try them and let me know how your family likes them.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put all ingredients except for corn flakes in a big pot and bring to a slow boil stirring constantly or it will burn on bottom. Once to a boil take off burner and put on a cool burner. Slowly add corn flakes till totally covered. Spoon onto non-stick cookie sheet or waxed paper. Mixture will be hot to handle. Once cooler form them more into balls so they stay together better and for easier storage. Makes approximately 40 balls. Enjoy, they don't last long.
