Recipe Source: Grandmother


1 cup Karo syrup
1 cup sugar
12 oz. peanut butter
6 cups cornflakes


Boil the first two ingredients. As soon as it begins to boil, stir in the peanut butter and cornflakes. Drop immediately on wax paper. You have to work quickly before the candy hardens. Enjoy!

Nicki’s Notes:

My mother made these all the time when I was growing up. They are by far my favorite of her holiday candies. I used to help her make and roll them out every year just before Christmas. This recipe was used by my grandmother when she was a lunchroom lady at Minor High School.

A tip: coat your hands with butter before rolling to help keep the mix from sticking to your hands and fingers!
