Peanut Butter Balls

Growing up, I'm sure everyone had that particular food that was always on hand.  It's a food that was just a staple in life as you were growing up.  I had several of those foods from main dishes to desserts.  This particular recipe is one of those.  This recipe is great to through together, especially when there is no time to involve baking.

This recipe for peanut butter balls is a recipe that is consistently good and turns out the same way every time.  These cookies have been made to take to several different events as well as to keep around the house to snack on.  It's one of those cookies that pretty much everyone likes; you get your sweet, salty and crunchy all in one.  Who doesn't like that?  I haven't met anyone that has turned down this cookie; so it's definitely a no fail recipe!

I made these to have some around the house but to also send to my solder, Mandi, as part of Operation Baking Gals.  There was a peanut butter theme going on during this round of Baking Gals, it defnitely wasn't planned it just happened to turn out that way.  I wanted to send her something that has been in my family for years and it's something that we ALWAYS have around at Christmas time as well.  I hope she enjoyed these as much as I do!

 Peanut Butter Balls


1 Cup sugar
1 Cup Karo syrup
1 1/2 Cups peanut butter
6 Cups Corn Flakes


Pour 6 cups of Corn Flakes into a large bowl.

Bring sugar and Karo to a boil and then add the peanut butter, stirring continuously.  Once mixture is creamy and well blended remove from heat. 

Pour peanut butter mixture over Corn Flakes and stir together.  Once well mixed shape mixture into small balls about the size of golf balls and place on wax/parchment paper.  Once all the mixture is shaped and set on paper, let set until stiffened then store in air tight container with wax paper separating the rows.

Thanks for posting this! I purchased a bottle of corn syrup just to use only a fraction and so I'm on the lookout for recipes calling for corn syrup so I can use it up!
