Penny's Passion: Peanut Butter Scotchies

Peanut Butter Scotchies

If you saw my Weekending post, you already had a preview of the cookies I whipped up when I got home on Sunday.  This is my mother-in-law's recipe and one of Eric's favorites.


These Peanut Butter Scotchies were a perfect surprise for Eric -- so simple to make that even I could do it after a fun weekend away with friends. Check out how simple they are:

Ingredients
1 cup creamy peanut butter
2 packages butterscotch chips
6 cups cornflakes


Pour the butterscotch chips in a microwave safe bowl.  Put in the microwave with a small cup of water beside the bowl of chips and heat for 2 minutes.  Stir.  Heat for another 2 minutes.  Stir again.  The chips should be completely melted, but if they are not heat again in 30 second increments until they are completely melted.  Stir in 1 cup peanut butter.


Add in the 6 cups of cornflakes.  Mix until all the cornflakes are well coated with the melted mixture.

Drop by spoonfuls onto a tray covered with wax paper.  Place in the refrigerator to cool until set.


Love the crunch the cornflakes give these sweet little treats!  One batch makes about 40 cookies.  From start to finish, this recipe took about 15 minutes to complete.  Can't beat that for a quick dessert.  Enjoy!

  3. Beautiful plate it is on! Now where have I seen that before . . . LOL! This recipe my husband would love. Anything peanut butter and I like that it is quick and easy. Cooking with PB is always a challenge for me due to my nut allergy, thank goodness for gloves.

Going to have to make these for him the next time he comes over or I can mail him some for his birthday in a surprise. I surely would be his NO. 1 Mom in the whole wide world as he use to say when he was little. hehehe
