Peanut Butter Cornflake Cookies
When I want to whip up a dessert that’s no-stress and low-effort, I’m always looking for a no bake recipe. As delicious as baked goods are, no bakes take a lot of the hard stuff out of the process. At most, the only real “cooking” you have to do is on the stovetop or in the microwave- after that, sitting in the fridge, freezer, or on the counter is all that’s left! You still get tasty desserts in the end anyway, and these Cornflake Cookies are just one example of the simple delicious recipe you can make.
We keep this recipe simple: 5 ingredients, a bit of time on the stovetop, and a bit of time to cool. You don’t even need to clear space in the fridge for our cookies- they’ll cool quickly on the countertop! The result is dead-simple cookies that are equal parts creamy, crunchy, and sugary-sweet.
If you’ve got a big crowd you want to make cookies for, no bake cookies are a safe and easy bet. If you work quickly, you could have these sweets ready within an hour- cooling time included! I know you’ll love them- hope you enjoy them!

Ingredients for Peanut Butter Cookies
Peanut Butter – Use the creamy kind!
Corn Syrup – We used light corn syrup in our cookies.
How to make our No Bake Cornflake Cookies
With such a short ingredients list, it’s no surprise that these cookies are so easy to make! First off, add your peanut butter, sugar, and corn syrup to a large saucepot and put it on the stovetop over medium/medium-high heat.
Stir this mixture constantly to keep our sugar from burning up. As it warms up, all the ingredients should start coming together much easier as they warm up. Eventually, the mix should start to reach a light boil.
When it reaches a boil, turn the heat down low and add in your vanilla extract and stir it in briefly. Right after that, add in your cornflakes.
Stir and fold in your cornflakes, making sure that you get them nice and evenly-coated in that peanut butter/sugar mixture. While everything is still nice and warm, use something like a small ice cream scoop to start scooping out balls of our no bake cookie dough. Drop them onto a baking sheet, plate, or other flat surface lined with parchment paper.
In about half-an-hour, your cookies should be cooled down and hardened. Once you’ve given them this time to set, they should be ready to eat! Enjoy!
