Crispy and chewy no-bake cookies are an easy and festive Christmas treat!


  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • 1/2 cup corn syrup

  • 1 cup red and green M&Ms
  • 10-15 drops food coloring (red or green)


  1. Cook the 2 tablespoons butter, 1/3 cup sugar, and 1/2 cup corn syrup together just until sugar dissolves. Add in 2 cups marshmallows, 1/2 cup peanut butter and food coloring.
  2. Stir in the 6 1/2 cups corn flakes. Gently stir in marshmallows and M&Ms (if you do too much stirring, they will get melty)
  3. Scoop out 1/4c an flatten them into cookie shapes. Set on a silicone baking mat or parchment paper. Let sit 20 or 30 minutes to fully cool. Enjoy


Food coloring is optional, I like to use it to had a bit more Christmas flair.
