Pantry Recipe: Peanut Butter Cornflake Clusters Dessert

Peanut Butter Cornflake Clusters Dessert Recipe

A little while back I was on a mission to use up a bunch of food in my pantry before a big move. I had a full box of unopened corn flakes that I wasn’t sure what to do with. I knew I could use them for Cornflake Crusted Chicken, but I’d still have a ton leftover to deal with.  When I came across this recipe at Sticky, Gooey, Cream, Chewy, which Susan called the ‘Holycraptheseareamazing Cookies,’ I knew I had hit the jackpot.

Basically what we are dealing with here is a chewy, delicious candy bar-esque dessert. The recipe makes a ton of cookies and it only has a few ingredients to boot. My family loved them and I bet your family will too. Ready for the recipe?

I’m really not good at drizzling chocolate, am I?


Peanut Butter Cornflake Clusters

Yield: 2-3 dozen, depending on how big you make them


1 cup sugar
1 cup corn syrup
1 jar (18 oz ounce) peanut butter, crunchy or smooth (I used creamy)
6 cups corn flakes
3 oz good quality chocolate of your choice


1. In a saucepan, combine the sugar and corn syrup over medium-high heat until it comes to a full boil. Remove from heat and add the peanut butter, stirring until smooth and incorporated.

2. In a large bowl, mix the corn flakes and the peanut butter mixture together, gently stirring very well until all of the cereal is coated.

3. Drop spoonfuls of the cornflake mixture onto wax paper.

4. Heat the chocolate in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds, until melted and smooth. Drizzle over cornflake clusters and let cool. Serve when they have cooled.

    We made these when we were kids and the recipe we used was called Jean’s Clusters. I have no idea why it was called that but wow, were they good! Thanks for the walk down memory lane :)

    Just one small gripe: Your ‘print’ button is obscured by a big ol’ Pin It button that pops over it when you try to click to print it.

    I do not know if it’s just me or if everybody else encountering issues with your site.
    It appears as if some of the written text in your content are running off the screen. Can somebody else please comment and let me know if this is happening to
    them as well? This could be a issue with my web browser because I’ve had this happen before.

    Many thanks
