Peanut Butter Chews

This one goes out to all of you who first discovered this peanut-buttery deliciousness in Eagle Hill 7th grade Home Ec. class, with a big shout out to Mrs. Brenner!  So easy even twelve year olds can do it, and done in under a half hour, this was the perfect first project for a bunch of rowdy middle school kids (not to mention the perfect project for weeknights when you desperately need a peanut butter fix…)

Yesterday at work, I was talking to some of my colleagues about these tasty delights, and decided when I got home to whip up a batch.  The following conversation ensued:

My Aunt:  Hey, what are you making?

Me:  Peanut butter chews :)  They’re really easy and ueber tasty!

My Aunt:  Peanut butter JUICE?  GROSS!

And so I present to you, peanut butter juice… erm, chews.  (Best served in fact with a big glass of milk, not juice…)

Peanut Butter Chews

  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 3 cups cornflakes cereal
  1. In a heavy saucepan over medium heat, mix together the peanut butter, corn syrup and sugar. Cook over medium heat 4-5 minutes, remove from heat.
  2. Add cereal, mix well and mold into small balls.
