    Tootalltygerlily's Note:

    When I was a child, my neighbor's daughter and I were hungry one afternoon after school at her place. But there wasn't anything to snack on and we came up with this little snack idea. We loved it so much that we ended up almost using up the whole entire jar of peanut butter because we kept on going back and making more. Another good thing about this recipe is that you don't have to use the same ingredients or the same amounts. Experiment alittle! Use crushed Raisin Bran instead of Cornflakes. Or use 5 tsp. of peanut butter and enough cereal to coat it instead. It is all up to you and how hungry you are! Enjoy!

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 cup peanut butter (smooth or chunky)
    • 1 cup lightly crushed corn flakes

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Put cornflakes into a ziploc bag and lightly crush them with your hand or use the bottom of a mug or cup.
    2. 2
      Tip: Make sure that some large pieces are still intact. You don't want to make a powder out of them.
    3. 3
      Place the crushed cornflakes onto either a plate or use your clean counter top.
    4. 4
      Using a teaspoon, spoon out 1/2 tsp or larger (depending on how hungry you are) of the peanut butter and drop them into the cornflakes. Do only a few at a time.
    5. 5
      Now comes the messy (yet tasty!) part of the whole process.
    6. 6
      Gently roll the peanut butter spoonfuls around until they are coated in the cornflakes and are ball shaped.
    7. 7
      If you like the peanut butter balls to be soft, eat them as they were prepared. But if you would like to harden them up a little bit, put them on a plate or tray in the freezer for roughly 10- 15 minutes. Or longer, if you want them really hard.

      Yes, you are right. This is a great snack for a peanut butter lover. I've tried this with both cornflakes and raisin bran. I like it more with cornflakes. Very easy and yummy treat(messy too), but no pain, no gain!;-)
