These are no bake cookies that definitely are a lot more like a candy. I found a recipe like this on the internet that had rave reviews and decided to try it using the ingredients I had on hand. The result is below.
Chewy Peanut Candy Cookies
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup corn syrup
- 1 jar (18 oz ounce) peanut butter (yes an entire jar, or about 2 cups)
- 6 cups corn flakes (I used organic multi-grain flakes)
- 1/3 cup of flax seeds
- dark chocolate to drizzle (optional)
Combine sugar and corn syrup in a medium saucepan. Place over medium-high 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.
Add corn flakes and flax seeds to a large bowl. Pour peanut butter mixture over corn flakes and flax seeds and mix well, taking care to coat all of the corn flakes.
With a tablespoon (or two) scoop out and form into approximately 1 inch balls, and let cool on wax paper.
Put the chocolate in a small bowl and melt in the microwave for about 30 seconds. Stir and drizzle the melted chocolate over the cookies.
Let set until hardened and chocolate has set. You should store these in the fridge as well, especially during the warmer months.
