And the Winner is...

If you are up to date, you know that my family had a cookie exchange this weekend.  You also know that in my family, a little competition is considered healthy so we turned it into a contest to see who had the best cookie.  Unfortunately, we all made copious amounts of cookies and flaked out on making the official winning cookie decision.  However, I am prepared to announce my favorite cookie of the day, AND I will share the recipe with you (season of giving right?).

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.***
