A cornflake that is!
We were all at my parents house this weekend and decided to try out a new recipe for Peanut Butter Corn Flake Squares. It turned out really good! And it was super duper easy… basically a take on rice crispy treats. It only called for four ingredients!! Now, that’s my kind of recipe!
We found it in this town recipe book we have where people from around town submit their favorite recipes. The place we grew up has grown a lot, but in a lot of ways it still has that small town feeling about it. The recipe book we got this from is like that. You look through it and see recipes from friend’s parents and grandparents.
Next time I think I might add in marshmallows with the peanut butter, to give a fluffier taste. I also think adding in a big handful of peanuts would be good too. And maybe some chocolate chips. Can you ever go wrong with chocolate chips??? I think not!
