So I really don’t know what to call these…
They involve chocolate chips, butterscotch, peanut butter and corn flakes and I can remember my grandma making them for as long, well, as I can remember. I’m pretty sure that she got the recipe from the side of the cereal box, but my google work hasn’t turned up such recipe.
My grandma would usually make them around the holidays and would put them in old candy or chocolate tins (probably from the holiday season previous) with wax paper. They very much remind me of that time of year and of my grandma. She used to be quite the cook and baker making homemade divinity and dinner rolls, and I still haven’t had a better biscuit and sausage sandwich, ever. And don’t even get me started on her pear jelly.
Now that she’s older she doesn’t do much cooking I’ve tried to get many of her recipes so i can still have all those delicious treats I grew up with. This being one of them.
This is super easy to throw together, simply melt the chocolate and butterscotch chips with the peanut butter and then toss in the corn flakes. All you need to do after that is allow it to cool and cut it up.
These chocolate butterscotch cornflake candies would be perfect for all those get togethers that happen this time of year or just to have around the house as a delicious treat.
I can tell you I love having them around!
