Cornflake Peanut Butter Balls

This is my new go-to treat...I now always have cornflakes and peanut butter on hand when I need to make a treat in a pinch.  I made a batch of these for our Yellowstone trip and they didn't make it home same goes for my enrichment night they were gone in a flash! They are amazing, gooey, sweet goodness! 
Cornflake Peanut Butter Balls

Makes around 2 1/2 dozen

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 jar (18 oz ounce) creamy peanut butter
  • 5 1/2 cups corn flakes
  • 1/2 C melted chocolate chips
  1. Combine sugar and corn syrup in a medium saucepan. Place over medium heat and stir until the mixture comes to a full boil. Remove from heat and stir in the whole jar of peanut butter. Mix well.
  2. Add corn flakes to a large bowl. Pour peanut butter mixture over corn flakes and make sure you mix it all well.
  3. With a   cookie scoop, scoop out and form into 1-2 inch balls, and place them on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper.
  4. Put the chocolate chips in a small bowl and melt in the microwave for about 30 seconds stir until melted.
  5. Drizzle the melted chocolate over the cookies.
