Peanut Butter Corn Flake Candy

Author: Southern Made Simple


  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 cup white granulated sugar
  • 1 cup peanut butter I prefer creamy, but crunchy is great, too!
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 6 cups corn flake cereal
  • Wax paper


  • Line counter with large section of wax paper
  • In a large and deep pot, combine corn syrup, sugar and peanut butter and cook over medium heat until the center begins to boil, stirring constantly so sugar doesn't scorch.
  • As soon as mixture begins to boil, remove from heat and add in vanilla and corn clakes
  • Stir until cereal is thoroughly coated
  • Spoon corn flake mixture into dollops onto wax paper immediately, as mixture will quickly harden as it cools
  • Allow candies to cool down on wax paper for about 30 minutes before consuming
  • Enjoy!
