For those who are interested in making these cups for kiddies party. Very Happy Extremely easy.


Ingredients :
160g Cornflakes (plain)
90g Butter
70g Castor Sugar
2 tbsp Honey (I may have added more because I drizzled it from the bottle :p)

Method :
1) Melt butter and sugar over low heat.
2) Pour the mixture to the cornflakes, add in honey and stir well.
3) Scoop into individual cups and decorate with Hundreds & Thousands.
4) Bake in pre-heated oven at 150 degree C for 15 mins or till slightly brown.

Got this recipe from an Australian magazine, made some adjustments. Took about 74 pieces with me to the party. Including those me and my daughter ate while making them, should yield about 90 pieces. grin

Note : Try to arrange a piece of cornflake lying flat at the centre. It ensures most of the Hundreds & Thousands stays on top and not falling through the gaps.

Have fun!

hi.. not cooking monster but using chocolate to coat is far more easier. Just melt the amount of chocolate you want (to me, there's no such thing as having too much chocolate.. Smile love ) using double boil method or zap it in the microwave (under 1 min), pour over the cornflakes while you stir and scoop into those mini cups and leave it to set. You can add chopped almonds too if you like. Oh ya.. and no baking is required. HTH

hi hi,
sorry for the delay...ya reirei is right..just melt choco (if you want, just add a bit of butter to make it creamier) and then pour the cornflakes (plain or frosties) in and mix well. then spoon onto baking tray or into little cupliners and leave to cool/chill till harden. quite easy to do...only problem that you'll have is how to stop yourself from gobbling up everything at one go! yummy

Hi,
I've made similar recipe for cornflakes mini cups, it tasted crispy and deilicious only on day one. What happened the next day was it fell apart!
I saw some recipe whereby flour is added. I wonder is it because I didn't add flour, did your encounter this problem for this recipe? Please share your experience so I can make these for the coming new year, tks.

just saw this, what was the amount of sugar stated and the quantity of cornflakes? Mine was crispy for about 2 or 3 days. It will soften due to the moisture from the sugar.

Mmade this cookie before. Found that Nestle cornflakes are able to yield crispier texture as opposed to Kellogs cornflakes.

Hi,

I made these today and found that the cornflakes stuck to the paper cup. Couldn't get them out without having some paper stuck to it. End up eating quite a lot of paper! Did I doing anything wrong?

I hv the same problem, that's why didn't make it again. I think too much boney in the cornflakes. Musn't be too greedy huh?
