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.

My grandmother used to make peanut butter corn flake balls similar to these. They were great. I found the proportions in this recipe to be a little off. Not enough peanut butter or corn flakes too much of the other stuff. It's still a good recipe but not as good as grandma's! Read More

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 also didn't have an wax paper but a plastic cutting board worked just fine. Read More

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. I added 2 Tbs cocoa powder (because I had it and my family loves chocolate) and 1/2 tsp vanilla. These came out great! I will be making these again! Read More

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. Tasted totally fine without butter so I suggest trying it if you'd like to cut out some calories! Read More

I learned to make a version of these in fourth grade but the recipe I knew was slightly different. It had 1/2 cup each of sugar and light Karo but no butter and a whole cup of peanut butter and then used 6 cups of cornflakes. Those were less sweet than this version would be. Read More
