Looking for a recipe for a quick treat that everyone will like? These No-Bake Peanut Butter Krunchies will fill the order perfectly. A mixture of three ingredients is mixed and microwaved, then poured over cornflakes and dropped into mounds onto a baking sheet. A little melted chocolate is drizzled over all. These are so easy, even older kids can make them (adult supervision is a must, however, while the microwave is being used), and they include minimal ingredients that are probably on the pantry shelves at any given time.
These can be stored for weeks in an airtight container and are not only great for summer since they don’t heat up the kitchen, but also through the year as quick-to-make treats or an addition to holiday cookie trays.
