Butterscotch Cornflakes Christmas Crunchies No Bake Holiday Treats
I remember the non holiday version of this recipe being served in the school cafeteria when I was a child so this definitely brings back fond memories for me. Back in junior high I even worked in the school cafeteria washing dishes. It was my first job! I think I made like $50 a week. Ha! But the experience taught me the importance of hard work. I even got to see how different meals, desserts, etc. we made. So I remember that this particular treat was such an easy recipe.

GET READY because these will be the easiest no bake holiday treats you will ever make. Seriously such an easy recipe. I might have to investigate the use of another ingredient that isn’t peanut butter. Maybe honey would work? Just thinking for anyone who has a peanut allergy. We have one at our house! Stay tuned for what I find out… However, this can totally be a gluten free recipe if you use gluten free cornflakes.
