Butterscotch Dainties

Here is a super easy recipe that is a hit with kids and adults. My older sister was given the recipe from a co-worker named Gloria over 25 years ago.


6 cups cornflakes
½ cup peanut butter
1 bag butterscotch chips
Optional – chocolate chips


Place corn flakes in a big bowl. Slightly crush them. Melt peanut butter and butterscotch chips together and stir until combined (microwave or stovetop is fine). Pour over corn flakes and mix until corn flakes are completely coated.

For bake sales, drop by teaspoonful into mini muffin/candy liners (Wal Mart, Target, Michaels and Hobby Lobby usually have these with cute characters and seasonal themes. I line them up on a half sheet pan and just fill them up, put them in the freezer until solidified, then transfer them to rigid containers or plastic bags. 

For home, drop them onto sheets of waxed paper by the teaspoonful. Chill to set. Eat some, freeze some! 

As seen in the picture, I melted some chocolate chips and drizzled on top to make these very simple cookies look fancier.

Note: I personally use a cookie scoop to make it go really quick (like the small size from Pampered Chef). Our kids love to help with this cookie and they are so addictive!
