Chocolate coated Cornflakes

My little daughter helped me made this during the school holidays for a kids' magazine. The magazine will have the step-by-step instructions in photo, so it's easier for the kids to follow. If my 4 year old can do it, anyone can.  

  • 1 bar of 75g Chocolate
  • 30g Butter
  • 1 box of 25g Corn Flakes
  • Sprinkles of hundreds and thousands (colourful candy bits)
How to do it:
  1. Boil a pot of water.
  2. Remove from fire.
  3. Place a bigger heat proof bowl or pot over the water.
  4. Break chocolate and place inside bowl.
  5. Stir to melt the chocolate.
  6. Add in butter and stir to melt together with the chocolate.
  7. Pour in the corn flakes.
  8. Stir gently, not to crush the corn flakes.
  9. Coat corn flakes well with chocolate.
  10. Spoon chocolate coated cornflakes on to paper cups.
  11. Sprinkle hundreds and thousands over it.
  12. Cool it to set in the refrigerator.
Note: You can add in raisin, dried fruits or chopped nuts too!


  1. Wow.. this sure look great for both kids and adult.... :) So in which magazine will we be able to find the recipe?

    Thanks for your sharing.

  2. Elaine,

    Wahaha... we tried out this recipe for the kids on National when we're having our fondue. Guess what? I miss that line "Stir gently, not to crush the corn flakes" & I crushed every single piece. It doesn't look appealing like yours lor :( But the kids enjoyed it though. Tks so much. Will be trying out the rest of yr recipe soon since I had a oven now.

  3. thanks for this recipe!

    My mum will aways buy this cornflakes chocolate from some confectionery shop every CNY. And its not cheap! about $5-6 dollars for 1 small gong (bottle), and the chocolate always taste so bland cos maybe they use cheap choco..

    Will definately make my own chocolate with cornflakes from now on!

    thanks again! :D :D
