Peanut Butter Crunchers 2007

"I can't take these in my lunch, because our school is peanut free. But my brother and I can sure eat these quick at home with a cold glass of milk, or when we are travelling in the car to grannies house in Sudbury."

Ready In:
15 cookies


  • 2 cups chow mein noodles
  • 1 cup corn flakes cereal
  • 12 cup dark raisin
  • 12 ounces peanut butter chips (about 2 cups)


  • Cover a cookie sheet with foil, or parchment paper.
  • Put cereal, noodles, and raisins into a large bowl, and mix.
  • Put the peanut butter flavoured chipits into a microwave safe bowl. Microwave uncovered for 40 seconds. Use hot pads, remove the bowl, and stir well. If they are not all melted, place again in the microwave for 20 more seconds, remove again and stir. Do this checking every few seconds, stirring will help to melt them too.
  • When completely melted, pour over the mix in the bowl, and combine without mashing the pieces of cereal and noodles too much.
  • Work fast, and drop a tablespoonful of mix onto pan.
  • Let stand until firm and cool at room temperature.
  • Place into a container and cover slightly.

  1. these were very tasty and easy to make with my children. i liked the addition of raisins and cornflakes to the usual recipe for haystacks. my children and husband both asked for MORE.


I love to cook with my Grandma! Grandma is a wonderful cook, and makes me lots of yummy goodies. Grandma also makes sure that I eat good healthy food so my brother and I will grow up big and strong. Recipezaar has been a fun site where Grandma and I look for new easy to make recipes for us to test. I like the testing part best of all! I have learned that I don't like wasabi, it was hot and I had to spit it out. <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="">
