Cornflake candy is an easy, no-bake treat that you can whip up in a matter of minutes. Make it for Christmas cookie swaps or when you just need a quick dessert recipe for a potluck or party.
cornflakes, sugar, corn syrup , peanut butter.
In a medium saucepan or stockpot, cook the corn syrup (or syrup/honey blend) and sugar together over medium heat. Stir constantly until the sugar dissolves.
Add the peanut butter and stir until smooth.
Remove from heat and pour the peanut butter mixture over the cornflakes in the bowl. Use a spatula to mix well until the cornflakes are well-coated.
Spoon the mixture about 2 tablespoons at a time into "dollops" onto the wax paper. Cornflake candy is ready to serve once it reaches room temperature.
Store cornflake candy on the countertop in an airtight container for up to a week. Avoid placing them in the fridge as the texture will get too hard.
