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.
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 use to make these and had lost my recipe these cookies are so good and easy to make you can use chunky peanut butter if you want to but they are good just like they are
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. 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.

Corn flakes peanut butter cookie is very easy to make in a few easy steps:
Line a baking sheet with waxed paper.
Pour sugar and corn syrup in a saucepan and bring them to boil over medium heat.
Add butter and peanut butter to the boiling sugar-corn syrup mix, and stir properly until everything is thoroughly mixed. Then remove from heat
Place corn flakes into a large bowl and then pour the mixture from step 3 over the cereal. Mix gently until the corn flakes are entirely coated with the mixture.
Drop coated cornflakes onto the waxed paper and allow to cool before serving.
Tips and Variations:
You could use a different cereal, like Rice Krispies, in place of cornflakes. Just be sure that whatever cereal you use would yield a favorable cookie.
