These cookies remind me of peanut butter fudge. My Grandmother made them for us, and now I make them for my family. There is nothing healthy about this recipe but it is a great sweet-tooth fixer.

Recipe Ingredients

  • ½ cup white sugar
  • ½ cup light corn syrup
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • ½ cup peanut butter
  • 3 cups cornflakes cereal

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Line a baking sheet with waxed paper. Bring the sugar and corn syrup to a boil in a saucepan over medium heat; stir in butter and peanut butter until thoroughly mixed, and remove from heat.
  2. 2 Place the corn flakes into a large bowl, and pour the peanut butter mixture over the cereal. Mix until the corn flakes are coated with the mixture. Drop by tablespoon onto the waxed paper; flatten slightly if desired. Allow to cool before serving.

  1. I learned to make a version of these in fourth grade, but the recipe I knew was slightly different. It had 1/2 cup each of sugar and light Karo, but no butter and a whole cup of peanut butter, and then used 6 cups of cornflakes. Those were less sweet than this version would be.
  2. My grandmother used to make peanut butter corn flake balls similar to these. They were great. I found the proportions in this recipe to be a little off. Not enough peanut butter or corn flakes too much of the other stuff. It's still a good recipe but not as good as grandma's!
  3. Only problem is I can stop eating them Yummy
  4. Very easy and came out great. I was worried it would be too sweet but the peanut butter balances out the sweetness nicely! I used maple syrup instead of corn syrup and actually forgot to include butter. Tasted totally fine without butter so I suggest trying it if you'd like to cut out some calories!
  5. These are awesome! Back when I was in high school they used to make these and now I can make them for my family! Very easy and yummy too!
  6. Loved this it was fast and easy to make! I was looking for a sweet treat using only stuff I had on hand! This made the cut! I did add a couple things to it. I added 2 Tbs cocoa powder (because I had it and my family loves chocolate) and 1/2 tsp vanilla. These - Read more ...
  7. Great Recipe! Mine came out wonderful! I made one change. I used maple syrup instead of corn syrup. I also put them in the fridge when I was done putting them into individual cookies so they were ready faster. I also didn't have an wax paper but a plastic cutting board worked just fine.
  8. Simple and quick - the perfect go to recipe when you need a little treat! I also make these with 1/2 cup butterscotch chips & 1/2 cup peanut butter melted together and 3 cups of corn flakes.
  9. i use to make these and had lost my recipe these cookies are so good and easy to make you can use chunky peanut butter if you want to but they are good just like they are
