My family has loved these cookies for years. We use 1 package butterscotch chips 1/2 cup peanut butter and 3 cups cornflakes. You can melt it in the microwave instead of on the stovetop. Drop them by spoonfuls onto waxed paper to cool. If it's a hot day it helps to put them in the fridge for a while. Read More

I'm giving this 3 stars because my son loved them but they were way too rich for me. I melted some chocolate chips and drizzled over the top to try to counter the butterscotch flavor but it didn't help much. I ended up throwing away half the batch. Sorry. I prefer the Peanut Butter Chews recipe from this site. Read More

Rich? Yes. Declicious? Absolutely. These were the first to disappear of all the cookies I made for Thanksgiving and I've been asked for the recipe twice. I also added a drizzle of chocolate (and one of white chocolate) for both flavor and aesthetics and used chunky peanut butter mostly because I had it on hand but I'll be using it again; the peanuts added a nice touch. I recommend keeping the drops small - they are very rich - and maybe crushing the corn flakes a little bit to help with that. Also if you have a food scale weigh out the 4 cups (112g) rather than using measuring cups - my friend who cup-measured said he ended up with too few flakes and they turned out runny. Read More

These were easy to make and have a good flavor mix with the peanut butter and butterscotch chips. I took these to our cookie exchange at work and one of the ladies just flipped over them saying this was what her grandmother made her when she was little. Brought back great memories for her. The only downfall is you can't leave them out for too long as they get sticky but still good choice for a quick easy treat. Read More

these were fantastic! and super easy - ten minutes tops. i put them in the little truffle cups for more even distribution.. they tend to spread out if not contained. i also used the crunchy pb as the other review recommended. yummers!.tj. Read More

Excellent tasting very easy to make. The only thing I would mention is that the mix is slightly runny when it's mixed and you drop the blobs on the cookie sheet. I wasn't sure they were going to stick together but once cooled they came out fine. They were somewhat difficult to get off the cookie sheet though several of them broke when I scraped them off. Maybe spraying the cookie sheet with PAM first would help? Otherwise great! Read More

Great idea!! Although I didn't quite follow the recipe. I have never had anything like this before and the cornflakes sounded/looked weird to me. Instead I made the melt and then dipped bite-sized "waffle" shaped pretzles in covering them half way. Delicious!! I did half the recipe and it took about 10 minutes to dip 50 pretzs. Read More
