My family has loved these cookies for years. We use 1 package butterscotch chips, 1/2 cup peanut butter and 3 cups cornflakes. You can melt it in the microwave instead of on the stovetop. Drop them by spoonfuls onto waxed paper to cool. If it's a hot day, it helps to put them in the fridge for a while.



I changed the recipe a bit..But they turnd out scrumptious!! I used HONEY BUNCHES OF OATS for the cereal..And added peanut butter chips instead of peanut butter and then I greased 12 cupcake cups and then packed the mixture in them and let them cool in the fridge..YUMMMMMMY!!! =)



Rich? Yes. Declicious? Absolutely. These were the first to disappear of all the cookies I made for Thanksgiving and I've been asked for the recipe twice. I also added a drizzle of chocolate (and one of white chocolate) for both flavor and aesthetics, and used chunky peanut butter, mostly because I had it on hand but I'll be using it again; the peanuts added a nice touch. I recommend keeping the drops small - they *are* very rich - and maybe crushing the corn flakes a little bit to help with that. Also, if you have a food scale, weigh out the 4 cups (112g) rather than using measuring cups - my friend who cup-measured said he ended up with too few flakes and they turned out runny.
