Peanut Butter Corn Flake Balls

My mom first made Peanut Butter Corn Flake Balls when I was about eight years old and they’ve graced all of our holiday parties ever since. I warn you… they are addicting.

Make Peanut Butter Corn Flake Balls for your family!

You’ll need: 

This is a no-bake recipe and here are the super simple steps:

  1. Mix sugar and Karo well in a saucepan and place over low heat until sugar melts into Karo and no longer grainy.
  2. Raise mixture to a rolling boil for one minute. (Be very careful not to burn the mixture. It will likely spindle when it’s ready.)
  3. Remove from heat and quickly add vanilla and peanut butter. Still into boiling mixture and quickly add Corn Flakes stirring constantly.
  4. Spoon into buttered pan for squares or allow to cool a few minutes, coat your hands in butter and roll.

NOTE: They will harden into a brittle like candy, but can easily be made soft again by heating for 5-7 seconds in the microwave.

Yields 20 medium balls.

I hope you’ll give them a try. For more cookie recipes, visit me at Snackpicks or follow me on Pinterest and browse my Foodie {Cookies} Board.

As always, I hope you’re inspired to craft, bake, create and celebrate!
