One of my goals for the long MLK weekend is to clean out the pantry. I had a huge box of leftover Kellog’s Plain Corn Flakes, which is perfect for my Grandmother’s recipe for Old Fashioned Peanut Butter Cornflake candy that I have always loved.
Here is what you will need:
~6 cups plain corn flakes
~12 oz. creamy peanut butter
~1 cup corn syrup
~1 cup white sugar
First, combine the sugar and syrup in a large saucepan. Mine was non-stick so I made sure to spray some cooking spray on it. Cook on medium heat to bring to a boil.
Next, add in the peanut butter and stir until it melts. Then add in the corn flakes and stir until all are coated. Sorry I forgot to take a picture of this part, I was busy stirring : ). This is the only semi-difficult part. Every time I make this, I feel like there isn’t enough of the peanut butter sauce to cover all of the cornflakes, but just keep folding over and over, and it will cover nicely : ) Finally, drop by spoonfuls onto wax paper. Let it sit for about 30 minutes or so to set. Here is how mine turned out. There may have been more, and I may or may not have eaten some while spooning it onto the wax paper. Hello peanut butter goodness!
Here is Riley anxiously waiting for me to drop anything peanut butter related.
|She is such a good helper.|
Now who wants to clean up my kitchen for me? ; )
