These no-bake cookies are wonderful. I love them around Christmas time. Ingredients:

1/2 cup brown sugar 1/3 cup light corn syrup 1 teaspoon vanilla (I have used as much a 1 tablespoon and have liked the results) 3/4 cup peanut butter 3 cups ready-to-eat cereal flakes (I use Frosted Flakes) 1 cup coconut flakes (optional but in everyone of mine I make)

Directions:

1. Combine in saucepan and heat to boiling:

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup light corn syrup 

2. Stir in:

  •  1 teaspoon vanilla 
  • 3/4 cup peanut butter 

3. Mix until smooth stir in:

  • 3 cups ready to eat cereal flakes 
  • 1 cup coconut 

4. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto waxed paper. Sometimes I need to squeeze them together with fingers. Let cool and eat!
