This recipe is my grandmother Sally's and it has been a holiday tradition in my family since ever I can remember. So quick and easy as well.
Make sure you have enough counter space. Lay out your wax paper (about 2-3 ft worth) on the counter for the cookies to cool on. Also have 2 spoons per person dipped in butter (helps the cookies not to stick)
Mix together in a Large bowl & set aside:
* 5 1/2 C Speacial K Cereal* 3/4 C raisins
Bring to a boil only & then remove from the burner:
* 1 C Brown Sugar
* 1/2 C Granulated White Sugar
* 1 C white Karo Syrup
QUCKLY add to the mixture: 1 12oz Jar of chunky peanut butter and 2 tsp Vanilla.
Pour the peanut butter mixture into the bowl of Special K mixture.
Once the peanut butter mixture has been evenly distributed through the Special K mixture, take your buttered up spoons and form ball cookies on the wax paper. Let dry for as long as you can keep from eating them, and then enjoy :-)
