peanutbuttercornflakechews2 - 7_Fotor2Are you ready for another quick 10 minute snack?  My mother came up with this recipe when I was a little kid, and I can’t imagine how many times I’ve made these very tasty little snacks.  What could be better than corn flakes and peanut butter in a snack.  These also make a great lunch box or after school snack for the kids.

Here’s how I made them…
