No-Bake Haystack Cookies:
These cookies have been called no bake haystack cookies and also cornflake cookies. Whatever you decide to call them, they’re amazing!
Perhaps the thing I love most about these no-bake cookies is how easy they are and also I almost always have the ingredients for this recipe in my pantry.
They are made with 6 simple ingredients, cornflakes, marshmallows, butter, sugar, Karo syrup, and of course, peanut butter. 10 minutes, BOOM! Easy peasy!
If cornflake cookies are your thang, check out these other variations of amazing no-bake cookies.
Ingredients in No-Bake Peanut Butter Cornflake Cookies:
- 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.
- Marshallows- mini marshmallows
- Cornflakes-plain cornflakes (don’t use frosted flakes)

Tips for Making the No-Bake Best Cornflake Cookies:
- Just like regular no bakes, you’re gonna want to have your pan already greased and all your ingredients for this recipe ready to go. It’s that quick!
- The recipe calls for boiling the sugar mixture for 1 minute. If you like to keep your cookies really chewy, knock that down to about 30 seconds, just long enough for the sugar to dissolve fully and come to a rapid boil.
- You can use mini marshmallows or large marshmallows. If you like small chunks of marshmallows in your cookies, use large and don’t let them melt quite all the way.
- This is also incredible with coconut extract added before you add the cornflakes. Wowza!! Also, coconut flakes are super in this too. Just add them before you add the cornflakes too.
- Chunky peanut butter is my favorite in these no-bake cookies. I love the little bits!
- You can drop in cookie portions onto a greased cookie sheet or spread them on the cookie sheet and just pull them apart when they’re cool. (That way you can say you only ate one cookie. haha)
