corn flake meteorite candies

As I posted on Tuesday, we’ve been busy styling a new Space birthday party collection this week. And when we style new collections we like to share fun treat ideas, crafts and more to go along with them. For the new Space collection we made these meteorites, or corn flake balls. They are actually a long-time family favorite… okay, my mom is addicted to them, brings them to every family function and refuses to seek treatment, but what can I do because I love them too?!

The best part is, they’re super easy to make, only require a few ingredients and take no time at all. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup Karo syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 6 cups Kellogg’s Corn Flakes
  • wax paper

Easy steps:

  1. Mix sugar and Karo in saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly
  2. When thoroughly combined, bring to a boil for one minute
  3. Remove from heat and quickly stir in vanilla and peanut butter until well blended
  4. Stir in corn flakes
  5. Allow to cool briefly and roll into balls on wax paper (TIP: Dampen hands with cold water so the hot mixture doesn’t stick to your skin… Ouch!)

Check back next week for more ideas and a look at the entire collection. As always, I hope you’re inspired! And stop over at Kellogg’s for more of my Kellogg’s treat ideas.

    Wondering how far in advance you can make the meteorites? I’m baking for 400+ and am wondering the best way to get a jump start on things.

    Angela – the fabulous thing about these candies is they keep very well for days as long as they are in a sealed container. If left out, they still won’t ruin, but they tend to harden. Happy baking!

    About how many does this make? I need to make 100 for a youth group function at our church, and want to make sure I pick up enough supplies,
