THANKS to Emily Lucko for today's recipe, a no-bake cookie that relies on the ever-popular combination of chocolate and peanut butter.

125 ml (1/2 cup) corn syrup

60 ml (1/4 cup) packed brown sugar

250 ml (1 cup) creamy peanut butter

5 ml (1 tsp) vanilla

500 ml (2 cups) crisp rice cereal

250 ml (1 cup) corn flakes, slightly crushed

Remove wrappers from Kisses. In a medium pot over medium heat, stir together corn syrup and brown sugar and heat, stirring constantly, until mixture comes to a full boil. Remove from heat, stir in peanut butter and vanilla. Add cereals and stir until well coated.

Drop by spoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet. Loosely make into a cookie, gently press a Kiss into centre, and shape ball around Kiss. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.


Tester's notes: Kids seems to love no-bake cookies, and these have the added charm of hidden chocolate. You can use mini Hershey's kisses, which are sold in the baking section with other chocolate chips, to make slightly smaller treats. (And there's no unwrapping involved.)

If you use gluten-free cereals, gluten-free peanut butter, pure vanilla extract and Hershey's plain milk chocolate Kisses, these treats can be a gluten-free option.
