You will be thrilled to know the recipe for my unofficial winning cookie is simple (only four ingredients) and even (spoiler alert family members) no-bake so it is a great way for kiddos to help with the holiday baking. Once you make these crunchy, chewy, peanut buttery cookies I promise you will make them over and over. We do!
Special K Cookies
1 c. granular sugar
1 c. Karo syrup (white)
1 c. peanut butter
4 c. Special K cereal
Place cereal in a large mixing bowl.
Heat sugar and Karo in a saucepan over medium-high heat until it comes to a full rolling boil (this means it is boiling so hard, it does not stop when you stir it), stirring constantly.
Remove from heat and add peanut butter, stirring to combine.
Pour over cereal and mix well.
Roll into balls and place on wax or parchment paper to cool.
Store in an airtight container.
***Don't know what Karo syrup is? It is corn syrup, you want the light version for this recipe.***
***For an extra twist, melt some chocolate chips in a baggie, snip off the tip and squiggle over the top of the cookies. Yum.***
