  • 6 cups cornflakes cereal
  • 1 cup corn syrup
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/4 teaspoon vegetable oil


  • Line your countertop or a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • To a large bowl, add your cornflakes and set aside.
  • To a medium saucepan over medium heat, add the corn syrup and sugar. Stir over heat until the sugar dissolves (about 3-4 minutes). Do not let it boil.
  • Once your sugar is dissolved, remove the pan from the heat and stir in the peanut butter until smooth.
  • Pour the mixture over the cornflakes and gently stir together until all the cereal is coated.
  • Use a cookie scoop (or spoon) to drop heaping tablespoons onto the prepared parchment paper and let cool for about 30 minutes.
  • Once cooled, in a small microwave safe bowl, add the chocolate chips and vegetable oil. Microwave for 30 seconds, then stir. Repeat for 30 second intervals until melted and smooth.
  • Drizzle the chocolate (I added it to a plastic  bag and snipped the very tip) over the cookies.
  • Let set up for about 15 minutes before serving.
