Have you ever tried Cornflake Cookies? WAIT – Don’t stop reading here!!!
The first time I tried one, I never knew they were made with corn flakes, let alone dates! But as everyone was raving about the chocolate covered cookies placed neatly on the cookie tray that my sister-in-law brought to our family Christmas party, I knew I had to try one.
Well one turned into a few. Ok, let’s be honest, I might have even stuffed a few in my pockets for the drive home that night. These cookies are so good that even ex-family members still request them at Christmas time!
As Jim’s mom’s recipe was passed along to us, I quickly realized how easy these cookies are to make. They don’t require any baking, only a few minutes over the double broiler to melt down the chocolate. The toughest part was stirring the chocolate into the cornflake mixture. But hey, I need a good workout this time of year anyway!
So the next time you want to make something unique, yet delicious, give these simple to prepare cookies a try. Everyone will be raving about them and asking for more!
