PREP TIME: 5 mins COOK TIME: 30-45 mins ASSEMBLY TIME: 10 mins YIELDS: Approx. 65±
1 c sugar
1 c corn syrup
1 (18 oz) jar peanut butter
6 c corn flakes
3 oz quality chocolate (I used white chocolate, but you can use any type of chocolate you like)
Cooking or baking spray
A double-boiler (or materials to make your own!)
Hard plastic spoon(s)
Parchment or wax paper
Once you start this recipe, you need to work quickly. If you don’t your ingredients will harden!
It is best to get everything set up and ready to move to the next step.
Get your wax paper set up and measure out all your ingredients.
Spray your measuring cup with cooking spray before you measure your corn syrup and the syrup will not stick!
Add corn syrup and sugar to a large saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring to combine
Bring it to a boil.
Immediately remove from heat once it starts to boil.
Add the jar of peanut butter.
Don’t worry about getting every last bit out of the jar, just get most of it.
Mix the peanut butter and syrup/sugar mixture well.
Once the peanut butter mix is done, add it to the corn flakes in a large mixing bowl.
**Please note it is
better easier to add the peanut butter mix to the corn flakes rather than the corn flakes to the peanut butter mix
Use the utensil you made the peanut butter mix with and a spoon to mix them together.
*After sending a few corn flakes flying around, I used my hands to mix this!
Don’t worry about crushing corn flakes, worry about mixing fast and well.
If you wait too long or take too much time, the peanut butter mix will harden!
Make sure to cover all the corn flakes with the peanut butter mixture
As soon as that is done, you need to form approximately 1″ balls on parchment paper
Now melt your chocolate and drizzle it over your peanut butter corn flake balls!
**I messed my chocolate up a few times (distracted by my 2.5 year old and my 8 month old) so I did NOT wait for my chocolate to melt well enough for it to drizzle. Whomp whomp.
But they are still delicious!!
You can even skip the chocolate all together or add a different type of chocolate, these babies are good!
They are airy with a little crunch, and VERY rich!
