Cornflake Cookies

I’m pretty excited for tonight! Every so often I will hostess a girl’s night with some girlfriends at our house. We usually play board games, talk, laugh a lot and enjoy fun snacks we all chip in on. Since it is after the kids bedtime we don’t have a meal. Each of us brings a snack, homemade or store bought doesn’t matter. I like to make something though since I love to bake/cook. This morning my little helpers and I made cornflake cookies!

Ingredients:

1 cup sugar
1 cup light corn syrup
1 heaping cup of peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
5 cups of plain cornflakes

This is an easy recipe and quick to make. First put the sugar and corn syrup in a large pot (I use my big stock pot). When measuring the corn syrup spray the measuring cup first so the corn syrup just slides right out! Put the pot over medium to medium high heat and stir.

Let it come to a boil for a minute.

Then remove from heat and add the peanut butter.

Use a spoon (or two! I use one extra to scrape the cookies off the first spoon) to drop into cookie size shapes on wax paper.

One of my little helpers is anxious for them to cool and dry! This takes a while, a few hours usually. After an hour or two I flip them so the bottoms dry also.

They taste even better than they look!

Hopefully some will make it to my girl’s night :) my little helpers are sneaky… Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Nice. I made something like these once. The plan was to make Rice Krispie buns buy all we had I. The press was Corn Flakes so it was Corn Flake cakes instead.

  3. These are what I took to our zoo trip. :) I’m not sure if my recipe has the same ratios, but I love these things!

  5. Iv’e made this exact recipe with cheerios. You can use any kind! I love that you used corn flakes though. I always have a couple boxes on hand because I’ll use those to coat chicken tenders for extra crunch! These treats freeze really well!
