Who said this usually bland breakfast cereal had to be bland? It turns out there’s more than one way to have the crunchy flakes, and this way might just be the best.
This super simple recipe is the perfect recipe to make with the grandkids helping. With only four ingredients of cornflakes, sugar, corn syrup, and peanut butter, and a three step guide to making them, they’ll be ready to scoff in no time at all!
The best part is, they don’t require baking – literally mix them, drop them, and let them se and they’re ready. They’re an absolutely delicious sweet treat that the kids (and you) will love, with plenty of protein provided from the peanut butter.
