for the lovers of simple desserts, i happily share cornflake clusters. an adventure in reshaping the haystack. a christmas classic, and my favorite.
the most sensational combination, second only to pb + chocolate. (that is to say, puppy chow)
get ready for your kitchen to smell heavenly.
easy-peasy, people.
1 1/2 c. peanut butter
1 1/2 c. butterscotch chips
cornflakes
1. melt peanut butter and butterscotch chips in saucepan over low heat, stirring often.
2. pour in desired amount of cornflakes and mix into melted peanut butter and chips. i start with 2 or 3 cups of cereal, and then if it looks too soupy i add more from there. just make sure all the flakes will be completely coated by the yumminess.
3. drop by teaspoonfuls onto a wax paper-covered cookie sheet.
4. place in freezer for about 5 minutes to firm.
5. after you take them out, pluck them from your cookie sheet.
6. pile them into your favorite tupperware vessel or handy ziploc bag & enjoy. store in fridge or freezer, because they are way better cold and crispy.

i know this may not be as good without it, but is there another way to make these without the peanut butter?? What would be a good substitute (if anything) to help keep it "glued" together in a sense? Let me know!

Hello, I'm Summer. A people-loving introvert whose hope and life is in Jesus. His promises are my passion and my ministry is homelife. This blog is a place for me to write about everyday things. Especially food. My favorite thing to do is sit around a table, lingering over a long meal with good conversation. I live with my husband and our 2 littles. We like blizzards, thrifting, grammar, guacamole, cheerful hearts, nice manners, good movies, and making simple, real, nutrient-dense food.
