Super Fast and Easy Chocolate Cornflakes Cookies Recipe

My daughter helped me to make this simple cookie. Actually there is nothing great about the taste but my kids ate all of it because they love the crunchy texture of the cornflakes. My cookies looked ugly and out of shape too because my little toddler kept on squeezing them! Ha ha ha! You can add some walnut, almond or hazelnut on the top to enhance the taste further. These cookies would be a great addition to the food served at children parties. Here is the step by step instruction to prepare these simple and super fast Chocolate Cornflakes cookies.

1) Melt some cooking chocolate using a bowl that is placed in boiling water. Add brown sugar to taste, vanilla essence, a little butter and a little salt. Stir until the chocolate melts and all the ingredients are well mixed.
2) Arrange cornflakes in paper baking cups. Pour the chocolate over the cornflakes.

3) To make the chocolate cover the cornflakes evenly, bake the cookies in preheated oven at 150 Deg C for 5 minutes or until it melts. (This step is optional)

P.S You might want to try making the cookies as per these comments from 'Anonymous'. The cookies would turn out better using this way. Thanks 'Anonymous' for the good tips! Anonymous said... Do not add sugar to cooking chocolate, add condensed milk instead as it will make the cookies creamy. U need not bake the cookies. All you have to do is remove the melted chocolate from the heat, stir in 1 tbsp of cooking oil for the glossy look n stir in the cornflakes or rice bubbles. Roasted peanuts can be added for the crunch. Other nuts doesn't blend well with cornflakes. December 3, 2009 12:09 PM
