These ARE Amazing Cookies....

Oh My. Yes. These are everything promised and more. When I saw these on Sticky, Gooey, Creamy, Chewy’s blog I knew I needed to make these. and soon.

They totally deserve the name she gave them “holycraptheseareamazing cookies”. My chocolate didn't drizzle as nicely as hers did, but I had a 5 year old helping me.

I’m taking these to a meeting tonight – I’ll let you know what sort of reactions these elicit. I loved them, the kids love them, my neighbor loved them. Love, love, love them.
Holycraptheseareamazing Cookies

from stickygooeycreamychewey

(my cooks notes in parentheses)

(Makes about 3 dozen cookies)
1 cup sugar
1 cup corn syrup
1 jar (18 oz ounce) peanut butter, crunchy or smooth (I like crunchy)
6 cups corn flakes
3 oz good quality chocolate of your choice
...Combine sugar and corn syrup in a medium saucepan. Place over medium-high heat and stir until the mixture comes to a full boil.
Remove from heat and stir in the whole jar of peanut butter. Mix well.
Add corn flakes to a large bowl. Pour peanut butter mixture over corn flakes and mix well, taking care to coat all of the corn flakes. (I added this in small batches and mixed used the "salad tongs" method - it seemed to work really well to mix everything up without smashing the flakes to smithereeniees)
With a tablespoon or cookie scoop, scoop out and form into 1-2 inch balls, depending on your preference, and place them on a cookie sheet lined with parchment or wax paper.
Put the chocolate in a small bowl and melt in the microwave for about 30 seconds. Stir until smooth.
Drizzle the melted chocolate over the cookies.

  1. They seem more like a confection than a cookie but that's not a bad thing in my books!

    Because of the cereal and peanut butter, would they qualify as breakfast food?

  2. I am sold just by your title alone! I think your 5 year old did a fantastic job with the chocolate. Were there any left after your meeting? These wouldn't last long in my home!

  3. You've got love a cookie that has that name! looks great!

  4. my kids thank you in advance for posting this recipe.

  5. My kids say "bon appetit" to your kids (and eat as many as you can before Mommy does)

  6. Whoah, these do look amazing. And deadly!

    I've got a blog award I want to pass to you - check my blog :)


  7. I went to Indiana Univ for grad school, and these cookies (or Special K Chewies, as they call them) are the best seller on campus. They have them at all the campus diners and coffee stores. Oh, the memories...

  8. I HAVE to try these! They are calling my name. ;)
