Peanut Butterscotch Balls

I found this recipe on pinterest and they are exactly like a recipe I've been making for a few years now. They have many names like: Scotcheroos or Heath Bars. Whatever you decide to call them if you like peanut butter and chocolate you will be in heaven with these!

Peanut Butterscotch Balls
(Makes about 3 dozen cookies)

1 cup sugar 
1 cup corn syrup 
1 jar (16 oz ounce) peanut butter, crunchy or creamy

6 cups corn flakes 
1/2 pkg chocolate chips
1/2 pkg. butterscotch chips

Combine sugar and corn syrup in a medium saucepan. Place over medium-high heat and stir until the mixture comes to a full boil. Remove from heat and stir in the whole jar of peanut butter. Mix well. 

Add corn flakes to a large bowl. Pour peanut butter mixture over corn flakes and mix well, taking care to coat all of the corn flakes. 

With a tablespoon or cookie scoop, scoop out and form into 1-2 inch balls, depending on your preference, and place them on a cookie sheet lined with parchment or wax paper. 

Put the chocolate chips and butterscotch chips in a small bowl and melt in the microwave for 30 second intervals, stirring in between each until it is melted.

Recipe slightly adapted from sticky gooey creamy chewy
