Cornflake Cookies

Cornflake Cookies – a super easy peanut butter and cornflake cookie that you can make in just minutes! They are crispy, chewy, and just like you remember!

When it comes to the holidays, I am of the mindset of the more cookies the better! I like options, so having a few super easy recipes to turn to are a life saver. Things like Reese’s Fudge that doesn’t require the oven makes life easier!

These cornflake cookies are a classic treat just like Grandma used to make. They only have 5 ingredients and you can have them ready in under 10 minutes.

Cornflake cookies are something you can make any time of year. I like to top them with a little bit of chocolate and sprinkles to make them even more festive. And let’s face it, anything with chocolate is better in my mind.

What You’ll Need

  • Cornflakes
  • Corn Syrup
  • Granulated Sugar
  • Peanut Butter
  • Vanilla Extract

Traditionally no bake cookies use oats to make everything come together. But the cornflakes in these give them the crispy and chewy texture that makes them extra tasty!

  1. In a saucepan over medium heat combine the corn syrup, sugar, and peanut butter. Stir the mixture constantly until it just starts to boil.
  2. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the vanilla extract.
  3. Pour mixture over the cornflakes and mix until everything is evenly coated.
  4. Using a cookie scoop, scoop cornflake mixture onto a lined baking sheet.
  5. Let the cookies set up for about 30 minutes before serving.

Recipe Tips

  • Decorate the cookies with sprinkles. You can make these for any holiday and just use festive colored sprinkles to decorate. Just decorate with sprinkles immediately after scooping them into a baking sheet so they stick.
  • Drizzle or dip the cookies in chocolate. Melt chocolate and place in a sandwich bag, cut off the tip and drizzle over the top. Or just dip the cookies in the bowl of chocolate.
  • Store cookies in an air tight container for up to 5 days.
  • If you want to take the cookies over the top, try making with Frosted Flakes. A fun twist that makes them even better!
  • If you have a peanut allergy, you can use any nut butter, sun butter, biscoff or cookie butter spread or even nutella.

Storage

These cookies are great to make and have on hand any time. You can store them in an air tight container at room temperature for up to 5 days.

You can even make these ahead and freeze them. It is best to have a layer of parchment paper between the cookies if you freeze them, because they can stick together. Thaw them at room temperature before serving.
