Special "K” Cookies



This happens to me a no-bake cookie near and dear to my heart. My mom made them for me and my brother growing up and we both still love them today. I love to make them when I need a peanut butter fix and they definitely offer you a lot of peanut butter flavor. They are super simple to make and a quick prep if you need a cookie and don’t have much time. I’ve mentioned before that I am trying to break away from using corn syrup. This recipe calls for just that, but if want to substitute for cane sugar syrup you can find a homemade recipe here.

Place sugar and syrup in a sauce pan. Mix to combine and place on stove. Bring to a good rolling boil (don’t over cook).

Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter. Mix well and add vanilla and cereal. Mix to combine. Drop by teaspoonfuls on wax paper. Let cool before eating.
