White Chocolate Peanut Butter Snowflakes

by Sarah on October 24, 2013 · 5 comments

Despite my accidental Yuletide-themed breakfast last week, it irks me to no end when “holiday festivity”* (with the exception of holiday coffee and Christmas music) occurs before we’ve even reached Halloween.

*Let’s be real; in our culture that’s really just PC for Christmas.

And although I love my rain boots, I’d be perfectly¬†content to never (ever) encounter snow.

But this too-early-in-the-season treat?IMG_6729 (1024x683)

And THIS kind of ‘snow’ flake?IMG_6748 (1024x683)

Well for that–for that–I will make an exception.

[Especially because the only shovel you need for this snow is a spoon headed straight for your mouth.]IMG_6751 (1024x706)

White Chocolate Peanut Butter Snowflakes

8 cups cornflakes

1 12-oz. package white chocolate morsels

1/4 cup creamy peanut butter

1 cup grated coconut

3 cups powdered sugar

  1. Pour cornflakes into a large mixing bowl.
  2. In a large zip-top bag, combine coconut and powdered sugar.
  3. Melt white chocolate in the microwave by cooking for 60 seconds, then 10 second intervals, stirring in between. [Be very careful as white chocolate burns VERY easily.]IMG_6669 (1024x683)
  4. Stir peanut butter into white chocolate and pour over cereal.
  5. Mix cereal and melted chocolate slowly but thoroughly, until cornflakes are evenly coated.IMG_6720 (1024x683)
  6. Scoop cereal into bag containing powdered sugar.
  7. Seal bag and shake, shake, shake!IMG_6761 (1024x683)

Eagle eyes..all fixed. :)

And I am honestly surprised I haven’t eaten it all. I put it in the freezer and discovered it tastes even better when it’s super cold.

This is brilliant m’dear…BRILLIANT! I knew there was a reason out there that cornflakes were invented…because let’s face it, it’s one of the most undesirable cereals out there if we’re talking spoon to bowl…right up there with Grape Nuts! It’s like Puppy Chow…only more fun because it doesn’t make you think of dog food! Haha! And yeah, I’d be happy if this was the ONLY snow I saw…ever!
