1 (approx. 10 oz.) bag corn chips
1 cup light corn syrup
1 cup sugar
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract, optional
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, optional
1 tablespoons unsalted butter, optional
Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and lightly grease paper with non-stick spray.
Spread corn chips out on parchment paper in an even layer.
In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, combine corn syrup and sugar and, while stirring frequently, bring to a boil.
Remove mixture from heat and stir in peanut butter and vanilla extract, if using, then pour creamy mixture over corn chips until evenly coated.
Let cool, then break into cookies, or scoop into cookies and set on a second, lined baking sheet to set.
Optional: melt chocolate chips and butter together in a microwaveable bowl, whisking until smooth, then pour over cookies, if desired.
