M&M Cornflake Cookies

I am so excited to share with you one of my favorite treats. I remember in first grade my class made a class cookbook and this is the recipe I included. Peanut Butter. M&M’s. Cornflakes. Mix and fall in love!

Do you ever go to the grocery store looking for something specific and can’t ever find it. That was me, looking for the Karo Syrup. I am still finding my way around my grocery store that is close to my house where I run to pick things up quick. It is crazy that no matter how high or low I look, I can’t find what I need until I ask someone and they look at me like “Really, lady you should know where that Karo Syrup is.” So that’s me at the grocery store. Always in a hurry. Never finding what I want. Does anyone else have this problem?!?! I hope I’m not alone out there. On to the cookie goodness.

I love that this recipe is no bake, quick and easy. A recipe for success in my book. I hope you will kick back this weekend and make some cookies. Enjoy them while watching a movie or reading a book.

  1. I just had to stop by and say I loved your post over at Love and Laundry! It was so encouraging as my daughter and I are starting up a new blog together. She has been blogging on her own for 3 years. It is good advice to not compare ourselves to the big guys! Thanks for posting the encouragement!
