"This has been a longtime family favorite. Very easy to make and a great choice for peanut butter lovers. The lighter you press the mixture into the pan, the more tender the candy will be."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

light corn syrup
dry roasted peanuts
1 (11 ounce) package
I do Cheerio's instead of cornflakes. and Call them survivor bars. They last forever and are super sweet!
This recipe is really chewy and delicious...without the butterscotch...I think the butterscotch makes it tooo rich. Some peeps may like it..I made it with the butterscotch and one batch without....the butterscotch does not melt very easy..and is not that easy to spread on top of the cornflake mixture..unless I did something wrong. Good recipe when omitting butterscotch!
My family liked this but instead of butterscotch we drizzled chocolate- it was DELISH!
Everyone loved this recipe. Even my in laws! This was very yummy!
The way I make these they are gluten free.
I use Organic, non-gmo Cornflakes, and instead of brown sugar I use organic coconut sugar, I just like that taste better.
I use organic cane sugar and instead of corn syrup I use Organic, gluten free Brown Rice Syrup, which has a bit of a caramel flavor to it. I use organic peanut butter and dry roasted gluten free peanuts from Costco. I do add a few TBS of butter to the coating because I think it gives it a better texture. And I omit the butterscotch chips...it would be too sweet that way. This way it's a great combination of salty and sweet, crunchy and chewy. Using the organic/non gmo ingredients does make it pricer, but I just don't go for gmo.
I've made this a couple of times and it was a hit!
This recipe was oddly sticky and I think the butterscotch makes it taste stale. The taste is okay, I guess, but kind of unpleasant overall.
