The first time I tasted Peanut Butter Crunch I fell in love. Literally. How can something be this good and who came up with this deliciousness? I’ll tell you what, whoever it was, I am forever indebted to them because this desert is pure heaven.

I’m not exaggerating. Every time I make this desert my husband and my kids go crazy, which pretty much makes me feel like a superstar chef. There’s just something about their sweet crunchy taste that makes everyone go nuts.

Just wait until you taste them, you’ll see what I mean.

This recipe is pretty simple to make which happens to be one of the many things I love about it. You can use all generic ingredients so it’s pretty cheap to make. I like to use an aliminum pan for easy clean up but you can use any type of  baking pan or these can be dropped onto wax paper. Make sure to spray your spoon and pan with non-stick cooking spray. Also, I like to crunch up my cornflakes a bit before I put them in the pan.

1 (8 oz.) cup of sugar
1 ½ cups of peanut butter 1 cup                                                                                                                 (8 oz.) of Karo light corn syrup
6 cups Corn Flakes Cereal
*If you’d like it to be more crunchy add 8 cups of cornflakes

Pour Karo syrup and sugar into a pot. Stir together. Bring to a boil. Boil until clear and bubbly. (About 60 seconds) Remove from heat and mix in peanut butter. Stir. Fold into (pour on top) corn flakes. Press down with a buttered wooden spoon. Cool, cut, and indulge in a little piece of heaven. You’re welcome.
