No-bake cornflake peanut-butter cookies

My 7-year-old daughter had a play date one night last week. She usually wants to make cookies when she has a play date. So, I had a recipe ready for us to try out! It was super easy- just the thing for two 7-year-old girls!

(Makes about 3 dozen cookies)

1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup corn syrup
1 jar (18 oz ounce) peanut butter, crunchy or smooth
6 cups corn flakes
3 oz good quality chocolate of your choice


Combine sugar and corn syrup in a medium saucepan. Place over medium-high heat and stir until the mixture comes to a full boil. Remove from heat and stir in the whole jar of peanut butter. Mix well.

Add corn flakes to a large bowl. Pour peanut butter mixture over corn flakes and mix well, taking care to coat all of the corn flakes.

With a tablespoon or cookie scoop, scoop out and form into 1-2 inch balls, depending on your preference, and place them on a cookie sheet lined with parchment or wax paper. Flatten out a little bit, or leave them shaped like balls- they will taste yummy either way! :)

Put the chocolate in a small bowl and melt in the microwave for about 30 seconds. Stir until smooth.
Drizzle the melted chocolate over the cookies. My kids absolutely LOVED these!
