Storing No-Bake Cookies
Storing- No Bake Cookies are best if stored in an airtight container at room temperature.
Freezing- No bake cookies don’t freeze very well. They tend to get a bit mushy. It’s best to make them fresh and eat within a few days.
Ingredients in Peanut Butter Cornflake Cookie Recipe:
- Sugar-Granulated sugar works great.
- Karo Syrup- Light corn syrup
- Butter- Salted works best
- Peanut Butter- Creamy or Chunky Peanut Butter works. If you're using natural peanut butter, you'll need to double the amount of marshmallows.
- Marshmallows- Mini marshmallows
- Cornflakes- Plain cornflakes (frosted flakes will work in a pinch but regular plain cornflakes work best)

How to Make the Best Cornflake Cookies:
- Grease a large baking sheet with butter. You can use parchment paper but I've found it's best to just butter a large baking sheet. The caramel coating on the cookies tends to stick to the wax or parchment paper and it sticks to the bottom of the cookies.
In a large, non-stick pot, melt the butter on medium heat until melted. Add sugar and corn syrup. Bring the sugar mixture to a rapid boil and boil for 1 minute.
Add the marshmallows and peanut butter and stir until combined.
Remove from heat and add the cornflakes. Stir until mixed thoroughly.
Drop by large spoonful onto a greased cookie sheet. Let cool to room temperature. Enjoy!
