    Cereal Munchie

    I had a recipe that used corn flakes, peanuts, and coconut. There might have been different cereals like Post Toasties, life, or something else -- not sure. This was then mixed into a cooked syrup. Does this sound familiar to anyone and do you have the recipe? Thanks for any help.

    The only recipe I have that is similar is called Puppy Chow....

    1/2 c (smooth) peanut butter
    1/4 c butter
    microwave for 1 min. on high

    mix above with
    1 c chocolate chips
    1/2 tsp vanilla
    9 c Crispix cereal

    Toss all in a paper grocery bag (or other large vessel you have) and cover with
    1 1/2 c powdered sugar

    Shake to mix

    Around here it's usually gone in about 30 minutes!

    Here is the recipe that came to my mind when I read your post. However, it does not include peanuts or coconut. I think it sounds like a great addition so I may have to try that the next time I make them!
    INGREDIENTS:
    1/2 cup white sugar
    1/2 cup light corn syrup
    2 tablespoons butter
    1/2 cup peanut butter
    3 cups cornflakes cereal
    DIRECTIONS:
    1. Line a baking sheet with waxed paper. Bring the sugar and corn syrup to a boil in a saucepan over medium heat; stir in butter and peanut butter until thoroughly mixed, and remove from heat.
    2. Place the corn flakes into a large bowl, and pour the peanut butter mixture over the cereal. Mix until the corn flakes are coated with the mixture. Drop by tablespoon onto the waxed paper; flatten slightly if desired. Allow to cool before serving.

    Thanks. I used to have this recipe years ago and lost it. Have wished for a long time that I could find it. I love this recipe.

    This sounds like the recipe I use. One recipe said to boil the sugar and corn syrup for a minute or two. THAT DID NOT WORK!! It's ready after it comes to a full boil.

    This was my uncle Lavel's recipe. He always made at Christmas and shared.

    1 cup sugar
    1 cup white corn syrup
    1/2 cup half and half
    1 tsp vanilla
    4 cups corn flakes
    1 cup coconut
    1 cup pecans

    Mix first four and cook to softball stage. Pour over remaining ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Mix well. Spread in a buttered sheet pan but dont crush flakes. Cut when cool.
