Baking with Henry – Chocolate Cornflake Cakes

Chocolate Cornflake Cakes

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]So I have to say my first poll on Instagram was an absolute failure! LOL You guys all voting for us to bake all 5 cakes and then either invite you round or post to you wasn’t entirely helpful! Ha Ha so in the end I gave Henry the vote and he choose Chocolate Cornflake Cakes.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image media=”55757″ media_width_percent=”100″][vc_column_text]A really simple and easy recipe, it’s perfect for an older child like Henry to essentially do on his own with little supervision.  Likewise it is also fun to get the little ones involved in whilst you bake.[/vc_column_text][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]

Step 1

Add the butter, chocolate and syrup to a microwaveable bowl.  Measure out the cornflakes into another bowl.  Put the wet ingredients in microwave for 10/20 secs at time, removing and stirring in between.[/vc_column_text][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][vc_single_image media=”55761″ media_width_percent=”100″][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][vc_single_image media=”55763″ media_width_percent=”100″][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][vc_single_image media=”55762″ media_width_percent=”100″][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]Step 2

Once fully melted then pour on top of your cornflakes and mix through with a wooden spoon.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space empty_h=”2″][vc_single_image media=”55766″ media_width_percent=”100″][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]Step 3

Now we made milk chocolate and dark chocolate batches and added choc to cornflakes, and cornflakes to choc.  The consensus from Henry is that adding choc to cornflakes is better/easier.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image media=”55765″ media_width_percent=”100″][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_column_text]Step 4

Put the mixture into individual cases and chill in the fridge for at least 30 mins.  If you fancy you can add marshmallows, choc and/or glitter etc. for a little extra sparkle!

We found that as we used larger cases we got six from each batch.  Thanks to the original recipe from BBC Good Food.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image media=”55757″ media_width_percent=”100″][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]

Henry totally approves!

So go on, have a go, think half of ours are gone already…[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_single_image media=”55772″ media_width_percent=”100″][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_single_image media=”55504″ media_width_percent=”100″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
