Corn Flake Peanut Butter Balls

Corn Flake Balls

Let’s set the stage…the snow storm is on its way.  I have friends coming for dinner.  The friend who is bringing dessert can’t make it.  I can’t leave my other friends without a sweet treat after dinner so I am heading to the kitchen to find something to make.  There is only one problem I am out of eggs and butter.  So the things I would typically make are out of the question.  So I scrounge through the cabinets to see what I can come up with.  I head to the computer to see what I can make with what I have.  I come across a recipe for “HolyCrapTheseAreAmazing” Cookies.  They sound delicious and I have all of the ingredients.  They ended up to be so good and I will definitely make them again and my friends LOVED them.

Corn Flake Peanut Butter Balls

Ingredients

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup corn syrup
  • 1 (18oz) jar peanut butter, creamy
  • 6 cups corn flakes
  • 3 oz good quality chocolate

Instructions

  2. Add corn flakes to a large bowl. Pour peanut butter mixture over corn flakes and mix well. Make sure to coat all of the corn flakes.
  3. Scoop out and form 1-2 inch balls and place them on a cookie sheet lined with parchment or wax paper. (makes about 3 dozen)
  4. Place the chocolate in a small bowl and melt in the microwave for about 30 seconds. Stir until smooth.
  5. Drizzle the melted chocolate over the cookies.
