peanut butter treats

This recipe goes way back in my family. My Mom used to make these peanut butter treats all the time. We all loved them so much that we could take some and hide them from the rest of our family!! I introduced these to Matt when we first started dating, and he just can't get enough of them.

I dare you to make these and only eat one. They are just too good to only eat one!!

To make Peanut Butter Treats you will need....

1 c. sugar
1 c. Karo syrup
1 to 1 1/2 c. peanut butter
6-8 c. cornflakes

Put sugar and Karo syrup in a large nonstick pot.
Melt the mixture at a medium heat until it comes to a boil.
Set the pan off the heat and stir in the peanut.
Stir until the peanut butter is completely mixed up.
Pour in the cornflakes.
Gently stir cornflakes into the peanut butter mixture.
Form into small balls onto wax paper. Let them cool and harden for a couple of minutes before storing in a container.

**Hiding from your family and eating more than your fair share is completely optional.
