These peanut butter cornflake cookies could not be easier to make. They are full of peanut butter and chocolate flavor, and come together in less than 10 minutes. Crunchy, chewy, salty, and sweet—they satisfy every craving.
This is a great recipe to make with kids, who can easily form the balls (under supervision) and drizzle chocolate over the top. Add sprinkles for extra fun.
Serve them with a cold glass of milk for an indulgent afternoon treat. You can also flatten the cookies when forming them, then turn them into ice cream sandwiches. Stuff some softened ice cream between two of the flattened cookies and freeze them on a wax-paper-lined baking sheet until firm.
Store in an airtight container.
7 cups cornflake cereal
1 cup sugar
1 cup light corn syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
Gather the ingredients.
Place cornflakes in a large bowl.
Heat corn syrup and sugar in a sauce pan. Gently stir sugar mixture. Do not allow it to come to a boil. Cook mixture until granulated sugar dissolves, about 3 to 5 minutes.
Remove pan from heat. Whisk in peanut butter and vanilla extract until completely combined and smooth.
Pour peanut butter mixture over top of cereal and gently stir until cornflakes are completely coated in peanut butter mixture. Be careful not to completely crush the corn flakes. You can also put half of the cornflakes in the bowl and mix in half of the peanut butter mixture, then top it with the remainder of the cornflakes and peanut butter mixture.
Using 2 spoons, scoop dollops of batter onto a parchment-lined baking sheet.
Melt chocolate in the microwave in 30-second increments until smooth and completely melted.
Drizzle melted chocolate over top of cornflake balls. Allow cookies to cool for 30 minutes or until completely hardened.
There are so many possibilities with these cookies.
- Mix in 1/4 cup of melted chocolate or Nutella into the peanut butter mixture.
- Top with crumbled bacon.
- Top with crushed peanuts.
- Top with mini chocolate chips.
- Use different cereals, like Rice Krispies.
- Mix in mini marshmallows with the cereal before coating them in the peanut butter mixture.
