Peanut Butter Chews

This cookie-ish thing 

I went to San Marino High School in San Marino, California the ’70s.  I hated high school.  I moved to California my freshman year and was always an outsider.  I still feel like an outsider, anyway, nothing that years of therapy won’t solve…..  I digress….  One high point in my time there was a “cookie” they sold in the cafeteria, which also sold corn dogs that had a greenish tinge to them!  This cookie-ish thing was called a peanut butter chew.  It was very weird and wonderful.  You don’t even have to bake these!  So for all my SMHS friends, without further ado – the peanut butter chew!  (nice rhyming, if I do say so!)

Peanut Butter Chews

Serves 12

½ cup peanut butter
½ cup light corn syrup
½ cup white sugar
3 cups cornflakes cereal

In a heavy saucepan over medium heat, mix together the peanut butter, corn syrup and sugar. Bring to a boil, remove from heat.

Add cereal, mix well and mold into small balls.
