Ingredients

How to make it

  • Melt butterscotch chips in the microwave.
  • Add peanut butter and stir to blend.
  • Place cornflakes in a large bowl; pour the peanut butter mixture over the cereal and stir very gently to coat the flakes.
  • Drop by spoonfuls onto cookie sheet and freeze about 15 minutes, just to firm up (I like to kinda "squeeze them together" just a smidge - helps to keep them from falling apart so easily when eating them).
  • Store in covered container. If it's warm or humid, keep these in the refrigerator.
  • NOTE: Since we really like the peanut butter flavor, I tend to use more peanut butter and less butterscotch chips - all depends on the flavor you are looking for. If I use 1/2 cup peanut butter, I will usually reduce the chips by about 1/4 cup - I just go by taste, melting the chips first, adding peanut butter until I get the flavor balance I want, then adding the cornflakes.

    Another have to make for the hubby. We are like Jack Sprat and Wife. My husband is so thin, he could pass for a toothpick. Needless to say, I'm twice the woman he married. LOL I'll need to fix these so he can have a nosh to add a little weight to the man. He will fall for anything peanut buttery. Thanks.

    Yes, this does seem about the same as the Cornflake Chews, except yours has the butterscotch chips in place of sugar and vanilla. The butter and syrup are to complement the peanut butter, and to ease stirring.

    I called myself checking before I posted the
    Cornflake Chewies recipe, but here it is! Around our town, everybody fixes these the same way, except for more or less syrup or peanut butter. I've never encountered any variation whatsoever. It just goes to show!
