Easy fix for a rainy-day sweet tooth

It's one of those days.

You know the type. Light rain. A little chilly. Monday.

The little one goes down for her nap. You do a little housework. Then the sweet tooth hits.

You look through your recipe box. Brownies? Nope. No-bake cookies? A little closer. Then you find it. The infamous peanut butter chewies recipe. Perfect!!!

I originally got this recipe from my mom, who actually got it from one of my brother's homeschool books (he was homeschooled 2nd-8th grades), in a section about following directions. And you only need 4 ingredients!

Peanut Butter Chewies

1 cup white sugar
1 cup light corn syrup
1 cup peanut butter
5 cups corn flakes cereal

Combine sugar and syrup in saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring frequently. Remove from heat. Stir in peanut butter and cereal. Spread in buttered 9x13 pan. Allow to cool, cut into squares.

That's it!! Although I often don't follow that last step... Just scoop some out with a spoon while it's still warm... Yum.

Hey, it's got peanut butter. And cereal. Those are kinda healthy, right? ;-)
