No Bake Peanut Butter Corn Flake Bars


It has been very warm here for the past week or so. Over 90° for an extended period of time has me whining. Western New York weather doesn’t “do” 90s, and that is one of our best kept weather secrets! Needless to say, I haven’t felt like turning on the oven to bake.

So, I dove deep into my recipe file for this old, old No Bake Peanut Butter Corn Flake Bars recipe. This one is probably older than I am!

Variations for the corn flakes include using:

• Bugles
• Chex Mix
• Cocoa Puffs
• Life Cereal
• Popcorn
• Fritos
• Special K

Added toppings (or mixing into the mixture) include:

• Butterscotch Morsels (either as a drizzle or added whole)
• Candy Corn
• Peanuts
• M&Ms
• Marshmallows
• Semi-Sweet Chips (either as a drizzle or added whole)

Pretty much all the moose-mixes, chunky-bars and sweet n’ salty bar recipes you see these days started with this base recipe 50+ years ago! Just remember when you are adding your ingredients to work quickly as the sugar and corn syrup gets sticky and starts to set once you turn off that burner.

    I have never purchased corn syrup before, so I just googled it. On the Karo site they mentioned that their Lite syrup was not recommend for cereal bars. I’m assuming that it’s fine since that’s what’s in your photo, right? I want to make these with my kids this afternoon, and goodness knows we should be saving calories where we can!

    • I don’t think I ever used anything else. I mean I must have, Stephanie, if they didn’t make light corn syrup 40+ years ago, but I don’t recall doing so. I wonder why they said not to? These harden after a few days, so maybe that is why? They don’t stay soft and chewy with the light? (just speculation here)

      I doubt with kids that they will last a few days though. LOL

  3. I must be living under a rock, not sure I have seen this recipe before! But now that you mention it, I do see how it is the base for so many other recipes! Thanks a ton for sharing! Great for not turning on the oven in the summer!

  4. Too bad for us that hubby is allergic to corn 🙁

    • Rice Krispies, Rhonda. The original Rice Krispies recipe was peanut butter, not marshmallows, and I’d be willing to guess it came about when Kellogg’s invented this recipe.
