These are easy no-bake treats that kids of all ages can enjoy making and eating. Set them in sparkling mini-muffin papers for a special touch or just set them out on a plate and watch them disappear. If someone has an allergy to peanuts, try making these with almond butter or with sunflower butter.
Makes 40 candies
¾ cup of granulated sugar
1 cup of honey
1 cup of creamy peanut butter (a natural, sugar-free brand is best)
1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract
4 cups of Glutino Sensible Beginnings Cornflakes
1 to 1 ½ cups chocolate morsels or coarsely chopped peanuts
Line a baking sheet with wax paper. Set aside.
Combine sugar and honey in a large saucepan and heat, stirring regularly, over medium to medium high heat until mixture begins to boil and sugar is dissolved. Remove from the heat; blend in the peanut butter and vanilla. Add cornflakes, a cup at a time until mixture thickens.
Fold in chocolate morsels or peanuts. Spray two spoons with PAM. Using one as a scoop and the other to remove the candy mixture, quickly drop by spoonfuls on the prepared baking sheet and set aside to cool. Once firm, place into cupcake liners, if desired, and store in a Ziploc bag.
