I have a no-bake cookie recipe that I love. It's
1 c sugar
1 c corn syrup (I use karo)
16 oz peanut butter
6-8 cups corn flakes
You melt the sugar/syrup, take it off the heat, add the PB and then pour over cereal. Scoop out on to cookie sheets, let cool, eat. Easy Peasy.
Here's the thing, though. I have five (5) quarts of maple syrup (don't ask). We do not eat that much pancakes or waffles, so I am trying to figure out ways to use it up. It's the real stuff, not "pancake syrup".
Can I use the maple syrup in lieu of the corn syrup? The cookies are solid, but not hard or candy crunchy. I don't bring anything to a boil, just melt the sugar.
I didn't mind trying it out and wasting the maple syrup since I have so much, but it would be a TRAVESTY to waste that much PB...we're addicted to PB in this house.
