Ingredients

Instructions

  • Add butterscotch chips to a large non-stick pot and melt over medium heat, stirring frequently.
  • Once chips are melted, stir in peanut butter until fully combined.
  • Stir in cornflakes and remove from heat. Use an ice cream scoop to quickly scoop mounds of the mixture onto wax paper. Allow the cookies to set until firm, usually about 1 hour.

Notes

  • A non-stick pot will work best.
  • It's very important to stir the butterscotch chips frequently when melting so that they don't burn.
  • The butterscotch and peanut butter mixture should be smooth just before adding the frosted flakes.
  • The mixture will be wet but not necessarily sticky when you first drop the mounds onto the wax paper, but they will stick together as they harden.
