HOW TO MAKE CORN FLAKE CLUSTERS



Corn flakes - 4 cups

Sugar - 2 cups

Karo syrup - 2 cups

Peanut butter - 2 cups



Start the stove eye on low, then add the 2 cups of sugar and 2 cups of Karo syrup. The consistency will be very thick and cloudy. Keep stirring and gradually turn up the heat. The mixture will soon thin out and began to bubble (or boil). At the first signs of boiling, take the pot off the heat.


After the pot is off the heat, add the 2 cups of peanut butter.


Stir in peanut butter until it has melted.



Now gradually add in the corn flakes, one cup at a time. To be honest, we add the corn flakes until we get the right consistency. There has to be an even amount of corn flakes versus peanut butter. If there is too much peanut butter and not enough cornflakes, you may have to use a spoon to eat it:) If there are too many corn flakes and not enough peanut butter, they may be a little dry:) Whatever works for you!



After the corn flakes are mixed in with the peanut butter, you can pour it onto a piece of wax paper to cool. After 10-15 minutes of cooling, roll them into balls. Or if you want the easy way out, pour the mixture into a pan to cool. Then cut them into squares.





We like to roll the balls and arrange them on a platter.



For as long as we can remember, corn flake clusters have been a delicious treat enjoyed by our entire family. They are wonderful for the holidays, teacher gifts, road trips and even the beach (one of our favorite places to eat them). If you love peanut butter, you will absolutely love this recipe.

Have fun and enjoy!

Made these, used 5 cups corn flakes. They are "gummy", but good. Should there have been more corn flakes added? Thanks. John
