In a large saucepan, heat sugar, peanut butter, and light corn syrup over medium heat until smooth.
Turn off heat and add in butterscotch chips. Stir continuously to melt the butterscotch into the warm mixture.
Add Corn Flakes, and mix to coat the cereal evenly.
Line cookie sheet with aluminum foil and spread mixture evenly on pan.
Heat oven to 400 degrees (F).
Sprinkle chocolate chips evenly on top of mixture and bake until chocolate chips begin to melt. This takes 15 minutes in my oven. Stay close and watch carefully so that the chocolate does not scorch.
When chocolate chips begin to melt and sides begin to bubble, remove from oven and spread chocolate evenly across candy.
Let set (about an hour) and then slice into pieces. Enjoy!
I hope your family enjoys it as much as mine does! This recipe combines the old-fashioned recipe of Corn Flake Candy with butterscotch and chocolate. I literally could make this each week and my kids and husband wouldn’t get tired of it. Lol! I love adapting older recipes and making them a little bit new. If you have a recipe that you would like to share, please do! You can always email it to me. I will also share a video of this recipe on my Instagram.

Blueberry Cobbler is a sweet treat to serve to my family throughout spring and summer. My dad has always grown blueberries (and often gives the entire bush as a gift to friends who ask him about them). We had trays full of berries each summer, and I always loved that abundance of homegrown goodness in our kitchen. 🙂 My mom would make blueberry jam that I could never get enough of- and blueberry muffins, and blueberry cobbler…
When we have blueberries that happen to be more tart than sweet, my kids will ignore them pretty harshly. I usually freeze them for smoothies, but this time I decided to bake with them. The kids had no problem with the berries after this cobbler came out of the oven. Haha! Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream, and this tastes like summer in a bowl. Here is the recipe for this very simple family favorite!
My daughter requests this recipe for each holiday meal. I think it is cute because I felt the same way about this when I was a teenager. This recipe is hard to describe because it is unlike anything I’ve had or seen to which I can compare it. It is a perfect recipe for a brunch- and according to my daughter, every holiday meal that you make! I made it for Easter this year and thought I would share it with you. It is a shortcut recipe because it starts with a cornbread mix- and it doesn’t have many other ingredients to go along with it. I didn’t have a chance to take photos of it- except for when it was just out of the oven, but I thought you wouldn’t mind. Here’s the recipe…
