No-brainer cornflake crunch January 31, 2006

Posted by thelazychef in Cookies.

Pretty cornflakes crunch!


Seriously, this is really a no-brainer kinda recipe!


Cos even a 4-year-old kid can do this!!!

Haha.. thats why its perfect for a lazychef like me!

I first got this recipe from Gina, my friend from Uni, and after hearing her rave about how simple it is to create it, i decided to give it a try myself!

Indeed! I made one bottle worth of cookies in less than 1/2 hour! Cos there is no baking/cooking involved. Ok, if you wanna consider melting the chocolate, then its only 1 tiny cooking step.


What you need and what to do!

Put baking chocolate(you can get this easily from any baking shop) in a small bowl, put it into a microwave and melt the chocolate. Alternatively, you can melt the chocolate using a double boiler.

Pour the cornflakes into the bowl of melted chocolate and mix until all the cornflakes are well-coated with chocolate.

Spoon small clusters into small baking cups. Decorate with toppings(optional!).

Tada! Done! Enjoy!


See? Isn’t it simple? Its something you can whip up when you have sudden guests, especially when there are little kids too!

Give it a try too. Simple and very versatile. You can add other toppings, like various kinds of nuts, extra chocolate chips, raisins, cranberries… And you can use other types of chocolate… like white chocolate and strawberry chocolate(available from Phoon Huat, Singapore)

amazing haha…..one tiny Q tho…..Do u have to store em in the fridge?

2. thelazychef - October 15, 2006


Sorry! You’ll have to pop these darlings into the fridge for about 15 mins and they should be done. I have made them a couple of times and most of the time, you only need 15 min of refridgeration to get the chocolate to harden, and after that, you can store them outside in a cool area. If your kitchen is always hot, i suggest that you keep them in the fridge. But I normally keep mine outside.

I MUST emphasize that you must use baking chocolate for this recipe as the chocolate will stay harden even after taking them out of the fridge.

baking chocolate? hmm I used cooking chocolate leh……how

4. thelazychef - October 15, 2006

Baking chocolate and cooking chocolate are the same. Today, they can be used interchangably…

5. amrita - October 15, 2006

thanks a lot :D…i added some butter n golden syrup to mine, cos it was dark chocolate…but i think i should hav just used milk choc…cos now i have to keep it in the fridge as even when it sets, it still melts a bit

6. thelazychef - October 15, 2006

Yup… try it again with milk chocolate next time… 🙂
I’ve tried using baking chocolate chips, but they just don’t work as well as those block version of baking chocolate… Anyway, hope your version tastes great too!

Thanks for this recipe…….my kids love it!!!!!!!!!!
I went to phoon huat to get the baking chocolate, fortunately the
lady was helpful & recommended the semi-sweet version(tulip
brand). I have tried the sweet ones for some other recipe & we
all found it tooooo…….sweet.

Thanks once again for sharing this recipe.

I m gg to try this simple recipe too.

Hope it works well but I m over in JB, Johor not sure whtr able to find the semi sweet tullip choc or not.

14. thelazychef - August 8, 2008

Hi Ay Choo.

I think tulip chocolate should be available quite easily. Especially in speciality baking shops. This recipe is indeed very simple. Hope it turns out right for yours!

15. AC - August 10, 2008

I did not go to speciality baking shops n juz bought a bar of cooking chocolate fr Giant so it turned out slightly too sweet but anyway my kids like it. Thanks very much…….
