  • 6 Cups Reese’s Puffs cereal
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 3/4 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 1/4 cups peanut butter you can use crunchy or creamy


  • In a large bowl, measure out six cups of cereal, so you’ll be ready for it later.
  • Then in a saucepan, mix the sugar and corn syrup together over medium heat, and let it come to a boil. When it does, take it off the heat, and stir in the peanut butter.
  • Pour this mixture over your cereal, and mix quickly and well, without crushing your cereal.
  • Give your hands a quick spray with cooking spray, and form cereal balls about 2 1/2 inches in diameter. It’s good to have help with this, so your cereal mixture doesn’t harden before you get all the balls formed
  • I like to lay out wax paper to lay them on as I’m forming them.
  • Keep them in an airtight container or in large ziploc bags, to keep them fresh.
