Step 1

In a medium size saucepan, heat the corn syrup and sugar, on medium heat, until the sugar dissolves.

Add peanut butter and stir until smooth.

Gradually add corn flakes, 1 cup at a time, while mixing.

Remove from heat, then spoon mixture onto wax paper, or aluminum foil, and let cool completely.

**The official recipe calls for 6 cups of corn flakes, but you can use anywhere from 4-6 cups depending on how much you'd like to make and how crunchy or "gooey" you'd like your candy {use more cornflakes for more crunch}. For these pictures, we only used 4 cups of corn flakes, so keep that in mind when making yours.
