Easter Cornflake Cakes

Easter Cornflake cakes recipe

These lovely little nostalgic treats bring back memories of party buns – really simple and scrummy. I have tried to make them a bit more adult and a bit more healthy by adding some seeds and nuts.

Serves 12

  • 3 Mars Bars, or Snickers if you like nuts
  • 1 tbsp golden syrup, or runny honey
  • 1 dessert spoon butter or marg (not low fat spread as it separates)
  • Cornflakes, Rice Crispies or other cereals
  • 1 cup of mixed nuts, raisins, sunflower or pumpkin seeds etc

Line a bun or muffin tin with 12 cases.

Chop the Mars or Snickers into inch sized chunks and put in a large pan together with the butter & syrup and melt over a low heat stirring to blend thoroughly. I sometimes pop in any odd squares of chocolate which are lying around the house to add to the chocolateyness.

Remove from the heat and stir in the nuts, seeds & raisins. Gradually add in your chosen cereal until most of the chocolate goo is absorbed, but it still looks sticky enough to bind together.

Spoon into bun cases, decorate with a mini egg and chill to set.

These keep in an air tight tin for 3 or 4 days.

    Thanks Matt,
    When I have no other ingredients in for something more exotic, you can always guarantee finding some cereals and a chocolate bar in the cupboard to make a version of these.

    We did these over easter, only we used broken up shredded wheat instead of cornflakes to make them look more like nests for the eggs – looked great, kids loved them, but if I am honest didn’t taste as good as the cornflake ones
