Cornflake Balls (2 versions)

This is a recipe I got from a friend of a friend, these are so yummy! My kids devour them...



The old-fashioned recipe:



1 cup sugar
1 cup light corn syrup
1 1/2 cups crunchy peanut butter
1 tsp vanilla
6 cups cornflakes

In a microwave safe dish mix the first 4 ingredients together and microwave just until bubbly. Pour over cornflakes and mix together. Drop balls onto wax paper or tin foil. Let cool and enjoy.






Healthier alternative to the original recipe:


1 cup sugar
1 cup brown rice syrup
1 1/2 cups natural crunchy peanut butter
1 tsp vanilla
6 cups organic or non-genetically modified corn flakes



In a microwave safe dish mix the first 4 ingredients together and microwave just until bubbly. Pour over cornflakes and mix together. Drop balls onto wax paper or tin foil. Let cool and enjoy.

I make a 'bar' version of this.

Instead of rolling into balls, press into a 9x13 pan.

Then top with chocolate/butterscotch chips: Melt 3/4 bag of chocolate chips and 1/4 bag of butterscotch chips in a pan on the stove and pour over cornflakes.

Cool and cut into bars!
