If you like peanut butter, you’re gonna LOVE this one! When I make these, they disappear like hot cakes. They will bless your heart. And not in the way I mean when I say, “Bless his heart!” ‘cuz he’s (whoever he is) done something stupid and is “special”. They’ll bless your heart in the good way.
Here’s what you need:
1 cup sugar
1 cup peanut butter (I use creamy. I don’t have a Peter Pan affinity. It was just on sale.)
1 cup light Karo syrup (sugar on sugar is always best, I say)
2 Tbs. butter or margarine (well, duh)
6 cups Corn Flakes
a medium saucepan
a large bowl for mixing
Before you begin cooking the candy part, measure out the Corn Flakes into the big mixing bowl.
In the saucepan, measure the sugar and Karo.
Put the saucepan on the stove, but don’t turn it on.
Measure the peanut butter and leave it in the measuring cup, then put the butter on top.
Set it beside the saucepan.
Now, turn on the stove and bring the sugar/Karo mixture to a boil. Keep stirring. When it’s boiling, turn off the stove and stir in the peanut butter/butter mixture.
Now, pour this mixture over the Corn Flakes.
Drop them by the tablespoonful onto the wax paper. (Aren’t the Diva’s little baby fingers adorable?)
Oh, wait! What’s this? I seem to have run out of space on my wax paper but have some left over. Oh, well. Guess I’ll just have to eat it.
