No Bake Cocoa Puffs Cookies

HI guys! Today I have another delicious recipe to share with y'all that features one of my family's favorite things -- CEREAL!! It's a little bit weird how excited my kids get about cold cereal. I'm telling you, if I stopped cooking meals altogether and just kept a pantry full of cereal and a fridge full of milk, it would likely be months before anyone complained. No joke. Too bad for them, I actually like to cook {usually} so cereal remains a breakfast . . . and after-school snack . . . and often an after dinner/ before-bed snack. If my kids are REALLY lucky, cereal sometimes even becomes a dessert, like No-Bake Cocoa Puffs® Cookies.


These no-bake cookies are the perfect blend of chocolate and peanut butter, crunchy and chewy, easy and delicious. They're so easy that my teenage boys can whip up a batch all by themselves and amaze their friends - and mother - with their domestic prowess.


No-Bake Cocoa Puffs® Cookies


1/2 C. honey
1/2 C. light corn syrup
1 C. sugar
1 1/2 C. peanut butter
4 C. Cocoa Puffs® cereal

In a large pan, bring the honey, corn syrup, and sugar to a boil. Remove from heat and add the peanut butter. Stir until it is all melted and well combined. Dump in the cereal and stir until it is completely coated. Drop by heaping spoonfuls onto parchment paper or a greased baking sheet. Allow to cool before serving. The peanut butter coating sets up and becomes chewy as it cools.



My kids and their friends LOVE these cookies! Now is the perfect time to try them because you can get some killer deals on cereal at WinCo Foods using the Ibotta app on your smartphone.
