I have to refer to the 80s when I post this recipe, because that’s where they originated for me. This is the crunchy-soft peanut butter dessert we would find in the elementary school cafeteria – the stuff that always made me want more. A friend of mine posted the recipe on Facebook one day, and I snagged it. This is literally the only good thing I remember about school cafeteria food. LOL!
Combine 1 cup sugar and 1 cup light Karo Syrup.
Cook in microwave, stirring after 30 sec. intervals until the sugar is dissolved. (It takes 2-3 min. in my microwave.)
Remove from microwave and add 1 T. butter and 1 cup creamy peanut butter.
Stir well and cook an additional 30-60 sec. if it has begun to harden.
Pour over 6 cups Corn Flakes and stir well. Then you may roll into balls, drop onto waxed paper, or smash into a parchment-lined 9X13 pan.
