Chocolate Cornflake Cakes

Who would have believed that cornflake cakes would be my first blogger’s hurdle?! Well, it’s only taken me three attempts and although I really wanted to make these as an Easter treat, I have finally managed to produce a batch I am happy with. Thank you to my mother-in-law Carmen from who I have adapted this recipe – I think it is awesome and I hope you agree!

Chocolate Cornflake Cakes

makes 12 cakes

Ingredients

3 full size mars bars
50 gr. milk chocolate
85 gr. margarine
114 grams cornflakes
2 packets of Smarties

Method

  1. Place 12 cupcake cases into a muffin tin.
  2. Chop up the mars bars and put them in a saucepan with the butter.
  3. On the lowest heat setting, stir until melted. (You may need to take the pan off the heat and stir until fully incorporated
  4. Add the cornflakes into a bowl and stir in the melted chocolate until all the cornflakes have been covered.
  5. Using your hands make 12 cornflake balls and place them in the cupcake cases.
  6. Add three Smarties on top of each cupcake case.

Suzy says:-

  • At Easter time, you can try using mini eggs instead of Smarties.
  • I tried the mixture with bran flakes after my first successful attempt and they were awesome too!
  • I use my hands to cover the cornflakes with chocolate but always wear gloves (to keep my skin young and beautiful!)
