No-Bake Easy Corn Flake Crunchies

No-Bake Easy Corn Flake Crunchies created by Some1sGrandma

I have been making these incredibly easy, sweet treats since I was a kid, and I still LOVE THEM! I don't do the add-ins 'cause I think they are great without them. One tip: try to work fairly quickly after removing from heat because the mixture gets harder to work with as it cools. Having all the ingreds. pre-measured before starting makes this a lot easier. This is a great treat

    I first made these in 8th grade home economics over 20 years ago. So excited to find the recipe again! Another fun variation is to add mini butterscotch chips or mini chocolate chips.

    So good! My mom used to make bar cookies that taste like these, but I hadn't had them in a really long time. I made a 1/2 recipe and got 21 cookies out of it. By the way, I ran out of corn syrup so I replaced half of it with honey. I really liked it that way a lot...honey and peanut butter go together well. Thanks for sharing!

    Oh my goodness, these were so good. Loved the creamy peanut butter, but the corn flakes stayed crispy enough. And I loved the way they set up, not too hard but not sticky either. Plan to fix this for my visiting nephews also. Thanks again for a great, easy recipe.

    Made these last night and they were delicious! Everyone loved them. Greased a 9 x 11 glass dish and made them into bars as colcadsmom suggested. Didn't use the optional ingredients, although pecans would be perfect. I did cut back corn flakes by 1/2 cup and add 1 cup of cocoa pebbles. Cut them while they were still warm, cooled in freezer, and cut again. The best way I can describe is more like candy than a cookie, like peanut butter flavored carmel. My BIL wants me to make them for him to take to church for their harvest celebration this Sunday. MMMMmm... made again using coconut, even better yet!
