An oldie, but a goodie!

Well, seeing as it's Thursday and I feel like this long weekend is taking forever to get here I thought I'd let you all in on a long loved recipe to help pass the time.  This is a recipe that I've been making for years and I actually made a big batch last night to the surprise and delight of T.  for this treat you only need 4 ingredients and minimal cooking skills.

Cornflake Peanut Butter Chews
That's it! that's all it takes......well, you also need a bit of butter.

Here's what you need:
1/2 cup butter
8 cups mini marshmallows
2/3 cup peanut butter
8 cups cornflakes

Here's what you do:
Melt the butter and the marshmallows stirring until all the lumps are gone.
Add the peanut butter and stir until incorporated.
Remove from heat and add the cornflakes stirring until everything is coated.
press evenly into a square or rectangular baking dish allow to set and cut into squares



  1. Hey! you need more than "minimal" cooking skills. This is one of my specialties :-)

  2. I was actually going to post this one on your wall! every time I make these I think of you!

  3. Wow, I haven't eaten those in a long time! They look delicious and have my favourite ingredient - pb!

  4. If you want I"ll make a batch for next weekend!
