These cookies are rumored to be "the best no-bake cookies ever" and "holycraptheseareamazing" cookies. I wouldn't go quite that far, but they are easy, delicious, and don't require the oven.
Other cookies that I'd put in this category are oatmeal, chocolate, peanut butter no bake cookies and puppy chow/muddy buddies.
No Bake Gluten Free Peanut Butter Clusters
From Sticky Gooey Creamy Chewy
1 cup corn syrup
18 oz. peanut butter (we used crunchy)
6 cups corn flakes
3 oz. melting chocolate
Stir together the sugar and corn syrup in a large pot. Heat on medium high until boiling. Remove from heat and add peanut butter. I should have waited a minute or two for the sugars to cool slightly before adding the peanut butter. The high temperature caused the peanut butter to seize slightly.
Once the peanut butter is completely combined, pour over corn flakes in a large bowl. If your pot is big enough and you don't want to dirty another bowl, just add your corn flakes to the pot. Stir until the corn flakes are completely coated by the sugary peanut butter mixture.
Heat the chocolate to melted and drizzle over the cookies. Cookies and chocolate will harden as they cool.
While these are delicious, they aren't as amazing as I think they could be. I think the peanut butter consistency could be better making them a little more creamy.
Have you made these? What are your thoughts?
