Peanut Butter Cornflake Candy

Watch out, you can’t eat just one and 20 make you sick!

~ Shopping List ~

1 cup sugar
1 cup corn syrup
1.5 cups peanut butter (smooth*)
5 cups cornflakes

*This recipe calls for smooth peanut butter, but there is no reason to exclude chunky if that’s your thing.

~ What to do ~

Bring sugar and corn syrup to a boil over medium heat (remove from heat as soon as it boils).  Move quickly.  Add peanut butter, stirring until peanut butter melts and mixture is creamy.  Stir in cornflakes.  The mixture will be stiff.  Spoon out and drop cookie sized pieces onto wax paper to cool.

If you can’t resist eating one before they cool, at least wait until they are only warm to the touch.  Trust me when I tell you hot sugar burns.
