No-Bake Peanut Butter Cornflake Candy falls into the category of candies I love but forget about. These nutty peanut butter chews are so good and SO easy. You just melt butterscotch chips with peanut butter, then stir in cornflakes and any kind of nut. For this batch I used cashews.
Thanks to my friend KAnn for this recipe, which her family has been making for generations. As a bonus, this cornflake candy is gluten free!
Peanut Butter Cornflake Candy
An easy drop cookie made with peanut butter, melted butterscotch chips and roasted cashews.
- 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1 cup butterscotch chips (such as Toll House
- 3 cups Cornflakes (corn flakes) cereal
- 1 cup roasted cashews lightly chopped
- Combine the peanut butter and butterscotch chips and heat over a very low heat until melted. Alternatively, you can do this in a microwave-safe bowl using 50% power and stirring every 30 seconds.
- Mix together the melted chips, cereal and nuts with a rubber spatula. Working quickly, drop by spoonfuls onto a tray lined with parchment or wax paper. Chill until set.
Peanuts can be substituted for the cashews.
Tried this recipe?Let us know how it was!
Mine froze well. I’m not sure how they’d hold up in the fridge. As for being mailers, yes! I think they’d be great.
These treats look delicious! Do you think these would be good “mailers”, and do they stay fresh for longer than a day or so out of the fridge? They look like they would make a nice addition to my holiday goody tins if they do. 🙂
I have both my hands in the air… I guess I can have my friends make these :), which look fantastic by the way. I made something similar a year or two ago, but didn’t think to add nuts to it, they were good, but that would have made them so much better :).
I am NOT ready to say goodbye to summer. It’s too soon to hear about pumpkin lattes and fall open houses. I want more summer!
These sound like a tasty no bake summer treat.
These make my mouth water!! I am having problems with chocolate (again-from over dosing I’m sure) . These look like they could be sweet and salty–perfect!
