Tastefully Tueday...

Got your baking done for the season?  Well if you are done congratulations!  If not here is the worlds easiest cookie recipe, every time I make these they are gone within two days.  I grew up with my mom making these and they were always the first to go then too, funny how some things never change.

Cornflake Crisps

5 Cups Cornflakes
12 ounces chocolate chips
1/2 cup peanut butter

Put the chocolate chips and peanut butter in a glass bowl and microwave for 30 seconds. Remove the bowl and mix (the chips will look like they haven't melted because they will hold their form until stirred)  if you need to melt them a little more do it in 10 - 15 second bursts or you may over cook and break the chocolate making a gritty mess.  When they are done just mix in the cornflakes and coat them well.  Spoon the mixture out on wax paper or cookie sheets and let them cool.  If you live in a cold area you can always set them outside for a few minutes, that will do the trick.  If you want to present them as gifts you can spoon them out into little muffin cups.

  1. I love those cornflake crispies! We have to pop them in the fridge to set up here in the tropics of Australia! Nice and easy to make though!

    Just stopped by from the Tuesday Blog Trail. I’m following you now and hope you’ll stop by my blog sometime too! Have a lovely week.

  2. I made these and a version of these with of all things, chinese noodles! And...mini marshmallows and nuts! Yum! Love your idea for those of us who live in cold climates to put them outside!
