I'm popping in quick on this night before "Christmas break" to share, as promised earlier today on Instagram, a favorite Christmas cookie recipe. I don't know that you can really call them cookies because you don't bake them and they don't look like a cookie, but cookie it is! We call them Chocolate Corn Flake Cookies. Not only are they super delicious, but the recipe is completely basic and these are a surefire way to blow any diet or healthy-eating plans you may have set you mind to when you woke up this morning.
I need to give all credit to my husband for this batch that you see pictured below. He got up early to make them this morning for our work potluck today while I made the Green Bean Casserole.
6 oz. chocolate chips
12 oz. butterscotch chips
1/2 cup peanut butter
4 cups Corn Flakes
3/4 cups salted peanuts
Melt the first 3 ingredients. We do it in a saucepan because it's easy to keep it on a low heat so that it does not burn. (It could also be done in a microwave.) Stir in the Corn Flakes and peanuts. Drop by spoonfuls on wax paper. Let the cookies stand, set, and harden. We then put the pans with the wax paper / cookies outside because here in North Dakooota the below zero temperatures get those babies hard in about 5 minutes flat. Yields: approximately 18 cookies, depending on the size of your spoonfuls.
Wipe that drool off your face and go treat yourself to a favorite Christmas treat! See you tomorrow for Vlogging like a Boss!
