This has been a longtime family favorite. Very easy to make and a great choice for peanut butter lovers. The lighter you press the mixture into the pan, the more tender the candy will be.

Directions

  1. Combine white sugar, brown sugar, and corn syrup in a microwave-safe glass or ceramic bowl and heat until sugars have dissolved, about 1 minute. Stir in peanut butter. Place the cornflakes and peanuts into a large bowl and stir in syrup mixture, mixing well.
  2. Spray a 9x13 inch pan with cooking spray. Lightly press the corn flake mixture into the pan. Melt the butterscotch chips in the same microwave-safe glass or ceramic bowl in 30 second intervals, stirring after each melting, for 1 to 3 minutes (depending on your microwave). Do not overheat or butterscotch will scorch. Spread over the cornflake mixture. Allow candy to cool, then cut into 1x2 inch bars.
  3. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

This recipe is really chewy and delicious...without the butterscotch...I think the butterscotch makes it tooo rich. Some peeps may like it..I made it with the butterscotch and one batch without....the butterscotch does not melt very easy..and is not that easy to spread on top of the cornflake mixture..unless I did something wrong. Good recipe when omitting butterscotch!

I do Cheerio's instead of cornflakes. and Call them survivor bars. They last forever and are super sweet!
