- Chocolate- I like to use dark chocolate, but semi-sweet, milk, or even white chocolate works great! Baking chocolate or chocolate chips works best.
- Butter- I prefer unsalted butter.
- Honey- any honey you have on hand is great.
- Cornflakes- the best cereal to give this treat that addictive crunch.
How To Make Cornflake Cookies
1. Line a 12-hole muffin tin with muffin paper liners. Then add the chocolate of your choice, butter, and honey to a large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave the chocolate mixture in 45-second intervals, stirring well after each one until the ingredients are smooth and combined. Let it cool for a few minutes.
2. Add the cornflakes to a large bowl and pour the melted chocolate mixture on top. Gently stir the cornflakes around the bowl with a rubber spatula until they're completely coated in the chocolate.
3. Use a large spoon or tablespoon to scoop the chocolate cornflakes into the muffin liners. You'll want to fill them all the way to the top. Refrigerate them for about 1 hour or until the chocolate hardens and they set. Then dig in and enjoy!
Tips To Make The Best Chocolate Covered Cornflakes Recipe
- If you don't want to use the microwave, you can melt the chocolate over a double boiler or in a heat-proof bowl over a pot with simmering water. Once the chocolate is melted, remove it from the heat and add to the cereal.
- Don't forget to stir the chocolate while melting so it doesn't burn!
- Make sure to let the chocolate cool for a minute or so after melting, or it will make the cereal soggy.
- If you don't have a muffin pan, you can make these chocolate cornflake bites on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Use an ice cream scoop or tablespoon to form the cookies into a round shape.
The best part about these chocolate cornflake clusters might be how well they keep. So this is a super convenient dessert to make ahead of time if you're hosting or need something to bring over to a friend's house!
You can store the cookies in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week. Whenever you're ready to enjoy, either eat chilled or at room temperature.
