These were made by the school cafeteria when I was in grammar school, light years ago! All the kids loved them. When it was peanut butter chews for dessert, we all brought an extra quarter to buy an extra dessert. One of the women that I was room mother with years later when our children attended the same grammar school as we both did, brought in the infamous dessert, I begged her for the recipe. Our now grown kids still ask for them, they are a staple for all church & school bake sales. Yummy!

How to Make Peanut Butter Chews


  • 1Measure out the 5 & 1/2 cups of corn flakes into a large bowl and set aside. Get two muffin pans and line with cupcake papers.
  • 2In the microwave, in large glass measuring cup or small bowl, melt the 2/3 cup of brown sugar and white corn syrup. Set timer for a minute, stir and repeat until the ingredients are well incorporated. (This can all be done on the stove top in a pot, same directions apply.)
  • 3Remove from the microwave and stir in the 1 cup of peanut butter until it melts and is well incorporated and smooth.
  • 4Pour the peanut butter mixture over the cornflakes. Stir until the corn flakes are well coated.
  • 5Using an ice cream scoop, scoop the corn flake mixture into the muffin tins. Let cool and enjoy. You should get between 20-22 "chews". These do not get hard, they "set" and can be eaten within the hour.
  • 6If you want the "chews" dryer, add more cornflakes, if you want them softer, lessen the cornflakes. The amounts given here makes them "just right". Enjoy!!
