Peanut Butter Cornflake Clusters Dessert
This recipe offers a delightful blend of crunchy cornflakes and creamy peanut butter, forming bite-sized clusters that are quick to make and even quicker to enjoy.
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.
Basically what we are dealing with here is a chewy, delicious candy bar-like 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?
Peanut Butter Cornflake Clusters
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup corn syrup
- 1 jar 16 oz ounce peanut butter, crunchy or smooth (I used creamy)
- 3 cups corn flakes
- 3 oz good quality chocolate of your choice
- 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.
- 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.
- Drop spoonfuls of the cornflake mixture onto wax paper.
- 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.
