No Bake Cornflake Cookies

With the price of groceries rising day by day, I am finding myself looking at ingredients in my pantry. We have always been a family that likes to bake from scratch but I think it’s even more important to do so now. I’ve had a box of Cornflakes staring at me in the cupboard for quite a while now. My kids don’t love eating it as a breakfast cereal. So I was on a mission to find a recipe to not let the cereal go to waste. There are several no bake cookies for Cornflakes but I settles on one that also uses marshmallows since I had some of those leftover from this winters hot chocolate bar area. My 11 year old and I have a blast making these cookies and they came together pretty quickly. I would mention that after making the recipe as written, the peanut butter lovers in us would add more peanut butter next time. This recipe is definitely being printed and added to the family cookbook. Here’s a link to the recipe we used today. I hope you give these a try especially since the warm weather is coming, and you probably won’t feel like turning on the stove.

This is 1 of 3 pans we made and the cookies are a decent size.

Holiday Cooking Part 3

So I have to be honest I thought I would have a lot more time to cook and show off all the amazing holiday recipes I have tried and tested. Sadly I tend to forget to take pictures and I just don’t have time to cook everything again. So instead what I’m going to do is give you tons and I mean tons of links to holiday foods. I usually make a recipe as it’s written at least once and then tweak it to my families liking after that. Have some fun with these recipes and make them your own 🙂
