Grama's Corn Flake Peanut Butter Cookies

Recipe by  

"These cookies remind me of peanut butter fudge. My Grandmother made them for us, and now I make them for my family. There is nothing healthy about this recipe but it is a great sweet-tooth fixer."

Simple and quick - the perfect go to recipe when you need a little treat! I also make these with 1/2 cup butterscotch chips & 1/2 cup peanut butter melted together and 3 cups of corn flakes.

My grandmother used to make peanut butter corn flake balls similar to these. They were great. I found the proportions in this recipe to be a little off. Not enough peanut butter or corn flakes, too much of the other stuff. It's still a good recipe but not as good as grandma's!

Great Recipe! Mine came out wonderful! I made one change. I used maple syrup instead of corn syrup. I also put them in the fridge when I was done putting them into individual cookies so they were ready faster. I also didn't have an wax paper but a plastic cutting board worked just fine.

Loved this it was fast and easy to make! I was looking for a sweet treat using only stuff I had on hand! This made the cut! I did add a couple things to it. I added 2 Tbs cocoa powder (because I had it and my family loves chocolate) and 1/2 tsp vanilla. These came out great! I will be making these again!

These are awesome! Back when I was in high school they used to make these and now I can make them for my family! Very easy and yummy too!

Very easy and came out great. I was worried it would be too sweet, but the peanut butter balances out the sweetness nicely! I used maple syrup instead of corn syrup, and actually forgot to include butter. Tasted totally fine without butter, so I suggest trying it if you'd like to cut out some calories!
