These Corn Flake Peanut Butter Chews are made in just ten minutes and are great for school lunches or after-school snacks.  What could be better than a combo of peanut butter and cornflakes!!

I remember watching my mother make these yummy treats when I was a kid. I could never wait to lick the spoon and pan.  Then I couldn’t wait to eat 3 to 4 of them as soon as they were set. I’ve made these quick and easy treats a zillion times over the years and my kids always licked the spoon and pan. These also make a great lunch box or after school snack.

Here’s how I made them…

Then I added some corn flakes and mixed them into the peanut butter mixture…

And I placed large spoonfuls of the mixture onto parchment paper.  Note:  Do not use wax paper for these cookies.  They will stick and you’ll be eating the paper if you know what I mean.  It’s best to use foil or parchment paper.
