If you are looking for a quick and easy dessert, you are in the right place. These cornflake cookies are like a cross between scotcharoos and no bake cookies.

All you need is four super simple ingredients you may already have on hand, a saucepan and a spoon. That’s it, they will be ready to go in no time.

The results are sweet and chewy with a bit of cornflake crunch. They are everything you would want for them to be.

This recipe doesn’t use corn syrup like most, it uses something much more delicious. The flavors of peanut butter and honey are dominant and so good together.

Easy alterations to the recipe

If you really like sweet and salty treats, try sprinkling a few crystals of sea salt on top of the cookies while they are still sticky. It provides great balance to the sweet honey.

Scooping peanut butter, honey and cornflake mixture onto wax paper.

Or try using the crunchy chow mein noodles in place of some or all of the cornflakes. The cookies will look like haystacks and have more saltiness inside.

If the chocolate topping is one of your favorite parts of scotcharoos, try adding some to these as well. You can either drizzle it over the top of the cookies or dunk the bottoms and let them set up on a sheet of wax paper.

A standard (smaller) box of cornflakes hold more than 6 cups, so you will have plenty for this recipe and some for other uses.
