Cornflake Peanut Butter Brittle

This is a lazy version of peanut brittle - super quick, easy and surprisingly highly addictive.

8 cups cornflakes
1/2 cup salted peanuts
1 cup light corn syrup
1 cup white sugar
1 cup peanut butter

- Grease large cookie sheet.
- In large bowl measure out cornflakes and peanuts.
- In saucepan, combine syrup and sugar over medium heat, stirring constantly. Once sugar has dissolved, stir in peanut butter until it has completely melted.
- Pour over cornflakes, swiftly tossing and coating. Dump out on greased cookie sheet, spreading and pressing out.
- Chill. Once completely cooled break up into bite size chunks.


  1. Yes, I definitely think these would be appropriate for breakfast . . . and lunch, and dinner, and snacking in between. By the way, I'm holding a giveaway on my blog for Orglamix Organic makeup and you're welcome to come by and enter.

  2. Oh my Gosh. That sounds like a little piece of perfection. I may be trying that.

  3. These look yummy. I'm a cornflake freak and adding peanut butter to the mix sounds too good.


  4. Wow... This sounds delicious - I fear if I make it I'll eat it all myself!

  5. Ooh I've had something like this before and you're right! It IS addicting! Sounds like a perfect quick fix and perfect for a light party snack :)

  6. I love this recipe - growing up we called it Cowboy Crunchies! Yum!
