Most people are probably currently trying to behave themselves and stick to their New Year’s resolutions, but I am not one of them. So for those of you who are, I apologize in advance for tempting you with these chewy and delicious Peanut Butter Cornflakes No Bake Cookies.
Seriously, I know, it seems completely unfair of me to dangle such a recipe in front of you while you’re trying to be good, but these are just too good not to share! Like addictively good!
I’m a huge fan of no bake cookies, my mom made them all the time when we were growing up and I continue to make them in tons of different flavors today, like my Irish Cream No Bake Cookies or my Peanut Butter No Bake Cookies.
Traditionally, I make my no bake cookies with an oatmeal base, but for this recipe I decided to try something a little different, Corn Flakes! Not overly sweet, this boring breakfast cereal pairs with the creamy peanut butter to create a wonderfully sweet and salty cookie!
Peanut Butter Cornflake Cookies are an easy and sweet treat with no baking required! Everyone will love these chewy, sweet, and salty cookies that are ready in no time at all!
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup light corn syrup
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
6 cups corn flakes
In a large saucepan, combine the sugar, corn syrup, and peanut butter. Cook over medium high heat until center starts to boil, make sure to stir constantly so the sugar doesn’t burn.
As soon as the sugar mixture comes to a boil, remove from heat and stir in the vanilla extract and corn flakes, mix until corn flakes are evenly coated in sugar mixture.
Use an ice cream scoop to drop cookies onto wax paper as quickly as possible before mixture starts to cool and harden.
Let cool on wax paper for 20 to 30 minutes before enjoying.
