Cornflake Marshmallow & Peanut Butter Treats – {Post-Holiday Recipe}

Posted on


So what if the holidays have passed and Christmas is behind us. Doesn’t mean we can’t have a little bit of joy to spread around and help lift our spirits amid this frigid weather. These little marshmallow cornflake treats are very simple to make and delicious. And don’t worry about the calories, take them to work or school, these Joyflakes are meant to be shared!


The original recipe is from Nigella Lawson’s “Christmas” cook book. She calls them Cornflake Wreaths, but making wreaths takes too much time, so I made my own version a little simpler, plus I added peanut butter for that “American” twist. I call them “Joyflakes”.

Stay warm and buen provecho!

JOYFLAKES {Cornflake Marshmallow & Peanut Butter Treats}

Inspired by Nigella Lawson ‘s Christmas Cook Book


8 TBSP unsalted butter

4 Cups mini marshmallows

2 TBSP creamy peanut butter

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

4 Cups of cornflakes

Sprinkles to decorate


1. LINE two baking sheets with wax or parchment paper.

2. MELT the butter in a medium-size sauce pan, over medium heat.

3. ADD the marshmallows, peanut butter and vanilla extract. MIX well, until all the marshmallows have melted into the butter.

4. REMOVE the pan from the heat, and ADD the cornflakes.

5. STIR in the cornflakes gently, making sure they are all coated with the marshmallow mixture.

6. SPOON out a clump of sticky cornflakes, about the size of a small clementine and place it on the lined baking sheet.

7. SPRINKLE with your chosen decorations every two-three spoonfuls you lay out, so the sprinkles stick before the Joyflakes dry.

8. LET the Joyflakes dry for at least an hour before enjoying!
