As a kid, I ate a bowl of Cornflakes almost every single morning. Although I don’t eat cereal for breakfast much anymore, I always get a warm wave of nostalgia when I pass by the boxes of Cornflakes in the grocery store. If you, too, are a lover of Cornflakes and nostalgia, I’m willing to bet you’ll be interested in the dessert I’m about to share with you all today.

Cornflake candy is made similarly to drop cookies, where all you have to do is mix together the ingredients and drop a cluster onto a lined baking sheet. Let them cool, and they’re ready to eat! You could also add in melted white chocolate dyed with red or green to make these treats especially festive (like the wreath and Christmas tree shapes below!). Actually, you could pretty much add in anything and these Cornflake candies would still be delicious.
