  • 2 packages Tollhouse Butterscotch Chips
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter I use creamy, but crunchy is good too
  • 6 cups cornflakes generic cornflakes are typically thicker and work better
  • 1-1/2 cup coarsely, chopped walnuts pecans are good alternative


  • Place butterscotch chips and peanut butter in a medium sauce pan on medium, stirring often until melted.
  • Coarsely chop the walnuts and set aside.
  • Put cornflakes in a large bowl. Pour melted butterscotch and peanut butter mixture over the cornflakes and dump chopped walnuts on top of this. Then carefully, mix well to coat all of the cornflakes and nuts well. This may take a few minutes.
  • Drop piles (approximately a large tablespoon size) of the warm, cookie mixture onto a piece of wax paper and let cool for approximately 30-45 minutes or until you are able to pick up a cookie without it breaking apart.
