No-Bake Peanut Butter M&M Corn Flake Cookies

Last Thursday night, I saw a video on Instagram of someone making s'mores cereal treats.  I immediately craved some kind of crunchy, chewy and totally delicious cereal treat. 

My friend told me about these delicious no bake corn flake treats she likes to make, then we realized it's the same recipe as these Peanut Butter Cocoa Krispie Treats, just with a different cereal and they're cookies instead of bars.  
I immediately knew that is what I wanted to make, but I wanted M&M's in mine.  M&M's make everything better!  Plus chocolate and peanut butter is always a winning combo.  

These cereal treats are so so so yummy.  They are chewy and have amazing flavor.  The peanut butter flavor isn't too strong and it pairs perfectly with the M&M's.

(Printable Recipe)

1 c. light corn syrup
1 c. sugar
1 c. creamy peanut butter
1 tsp. vanilla extract
6 c. Corn Flakes cereal
1 1/2 c. M&M's, divided

Combine corn syrup and sugar in a large saucepan over medium-low heat.  Stir frequently until sugar is dissolved, then increase heat to medium and bring to a boil.  As soon as mixture comes to a boil, remove from heat and stir in the peanut butter and vanilla extract.  Then, stir in the cereal until all of the cereal is coated in the creamy mixture.  Last, stir in one cup of the M&M's.  

Drop heaping spoonfuls of cereal mixture onto wax/parchment paper and press a few M&M's onto the top of each cookie.  You can press the cereal together to help form a uniform shape.  Allow to set and serve.
