Cornflake Candy
1 1/2 tablespoons butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup corn syrup
3 tablespoons honey
1 cup peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
6 cups slightly crushed cornflakes
1 cup M&M candies

Wanda Henry shares the recipe for her Cornflake Candy with this warning: “It’s addictive!”
Henry and her husband are both retired elementary school teachers. When their two grown children come to their house, they always request their mother’s Cornflake Candy.
Henry also makes this candy for special occasions at her church, Northport Baptist, and when she was teaching, she made it for her first graders at Buhl Elementary.
The recipe can be made as written or changed to suit your taste.
Henry’s son likes the candy made with Frosted Flakes instead of cornflakes. Roasted peanuts can be added. Cut-up Snickers bars can be substituted for the M&M candies.
If any of the candy makes it to the second day, Henry’s husband heats it in the microwave for 10 seconds, making it nice and warm and gooey.
Butter the bottom and sides of a deep soup pot. Add sugar, corn syrup and honey. Mix with a long wooden spoon, trying to keep the mixture from getting on the sides of the pot. Stir constantly and when the mixture starts to bubble, time the mixture for 1 minute, then remove from heat.
Add peanut butter and vanilla. Quickly add the crushed cornflakes, mixing well, then add the M&M candies. Pour the candy on a cookie sheet that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Let cool until mixture can be formed into balls using an ice cream scoop that has been sprayed with cooking spray.
