Chocolate Cornflake Crispies

10 Nov

We are hosting our 5 year old half Spanish godson’s birthday party here this afternoon.  He has invited all his little Spanish mates – twelve of them – Yikes!

We thought we would provide half English and half Spanish fare – just to show how integrated we are!


In the past I have found it tricky to find the perfect Crispy recipe – they are either rock hard or too sticky – anyway, I found some time ago a Nigel Slater one – they give you the perfect balance of both and Mick has been testing them out since yesterday afternoon so I have had to make another batch!


For a rainy afternoon indoors with the kids, you will need:-


15 Paper Fairy Cake Cases


50g butter

4 Tablespoons of golden syrup (or very slightly less)

100g good quality dark chocolate

75g Cornflakes or Rice Crispies


Very gently melt the butter, syrup and cornflakes in a smallish heavy pan. Stir in the cornflakes.  Place spoonfuls of the mixture in the paper cases and refrigerate for a couple of hours if you can wait that long!  Absolutely sensational.
