"This has been a longtime family favorite. Very easy to make and a great choice for peanut butter lovers. The lighter you press the mixture into the pan, the more tender the candy will be."

Directions

  1. Combine white sugar, brown sugar, and corn syrup in a microwave-safe glass or ceramic bowl and heat until sugars have dissolved, about 1 minute. Stir in peanut butter. Place the cornflakes and peanuts into a large bowl and stir in syrup mixture, mixing well.
  2. Spray a 9x13 inch pan with cooking spray. Lightly press the corn flake mixture into the pan. Melt the butterscotch chips in the same microwave-safe glass or ceramic bowl in 30 second intervals, stirring after each melting, for 1 to 3 minutes (depending on your microwave). Do not overheat or butterscotch will scorch. Spread over the cornflake mixture. Allow candy to cool, then cut into 1x2 inch bars.

10.29.17 I liked the crunch of this cornflake candy, and the flavor that is the most prominent is the peanut butter (nothing wrong with that!!). The butterscotch chips almost seized up on me i...

The way I make these they are gluten free. I use Organic, non-gmo Cornflakes, and instead of brown sugar I use organic coconut sugar, I just like that taste better. I use organic cane sugar an...

This recipe was oddly sticky and I think the butterscotch makes it taste stale. The taste is okay, I guess, but kind of unpleasant overall.
