Who needs the ole' cereal and milk deal when you can just whip this up? Honestly one of the easiest breakfast recipes I've ever made, along with the "Sunny-side-up dessert".

Awfully sweet!! I decided to make it again but with a lot less sugar and it came out better than before, I'd recommend half a cup if you're only making it for yourself, unless you have a huge sweet tooth, this will be way too sugary for you.

Normally I really hate cornflakes since they have little to no flavour and leave a bad after taste in your mouth, but this Peanut brittle really hits the spot.Everything mixed together makes the cornflakes more delicious than I could have ever imagined.

I'm in love with this breakfast! I added some raisins to mine and had it with coffee, super tasty and you can have it alongside anything!

This is a pretty neat peanut recipe since it's so easy to make, I usually add some yogurt to mine too, love it!
