No Bake Corn Flake Cookies -this quick and easy cookie recipe is one of my favorites to take to ANY party, or get together!
Hey all! It’s Jessica with Fantabulosity! I’m sharing one of my family’s FAVORITE cookie recipes with you, and praying that they don’t see that I’m spilling the beans. I’m pretty sure they don’t want word to get out on how easy they are to make. ;) BUT… I’m also filling you in on a little secret trick that my aunt came up with, to speed things up even more! Keep an eye out for that below…
Peanut butter cornflake cookies
The simple, everyday ingredients, make this recipe one of those “staple,” go-to’s when you’re looking for something sweet, or needing a last minute dessert to take to a friends house.
Not so fancy in the kitchen? No problem! They’re “no-bake,” and quickly made on the stove-top… making it a recipe that even those who don’t consider themselves a pro in the kitchen, an easy one!
Do you have a young one at home? Try letting them help you make these No Bake Corn Flake Cookies. I’ll never forget making these with my sweet momma, when I was a little girl, and being so proud of myself for “baking,” in the kitchen.
It’s a small ingredient list, but just enough to practice measuring. It gives the kiddos practice, stirring the ingredients slowly on a cooktop (don’t forget the adult supervision), and lastly… it’s a quick enough recipe that will hopefully hold their attention from start to finish!
The cookies may have a slight “sticky,” consistency when they are completed. When storing, I will place a piece of wax paper on top of the first layer, before adding another layer on top.
No Bake Corn Flake Cookies
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup white corn syrup
- 1 cup peanut butter creamy
- 3 cups of corn flakes cereal
- Place corn flakes in large bowl.
- Cook sugar and syrup in saucepan over medium heat, until mixture bubbles.
- Stir in peanut butter until dissolved.
- Pour over cornflakes, and toss until covered.
- Shape in to small round balls, placing on wax paper to harden.
My Aunt’s Quick Tip:
So my aunt is pretty much a genius. She removes the whole stovetop concept COMPLETELY. She will use an 8 cup glass measuring bowl, and cook the mixture in the microwave, and then add the cornflakes. She then grabs a spoon and dishes out round balls, and places them on a piece of wax paper to harden. BRILLIANT, right!? So if you found yourself saying “Yes,” to not being too smooth in the kitchen, then this microwave option, may be the trick for you!
I hope you love this recipe as much as I do. Being one of my most requested cookies… I always make sure to have the ingredients on hand. :)
Thanks, Jessica! These cookies look amazing!
