Peanut Butter Chews
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup sugar
6oz (3/4 cup) peanut butter
2 1/2 cups cornflakes
Put corn syrup and sugar in pan. Stir over medium heat until the mixture comes to a boil. Take off the heat and stir in the peanut butter until mixture is creamy and then stir in the corn flakes. Empty into a rectangular pan and smooth out with a spoon.
Let cool a little (although these are delicious to eat while still warm) and cut into squares.
This recipe makes 12 pieces. If you want, you can easily double the recipe.
Did you ever have these on the menu at your grade school?

Our school principal would come to each table and dismiss us whenever everyone was finished eating. If she saw that someone never tried an item on their plate, she would make you take at least one bite of it before she let the children at that table be excused to go on their lunch recess. This is one item that she never had to worry about being left on our plate. Everyone loved them!
