I was asked if I make chocolate cornflakes for Chinese New Year as it has always been a hit during this festive period. However, it always didn’t seem like a challenge to me as it only requires 2 ingredients to make, thus I’ve never tried making it before, neither have I eaten it before. However, few days ago, my colleague made those and had leftover chocolate and cornflakes. So she gave it to me and I decided to give this snack a go. It was sooooo good, except for this chocolate part as I used compound chocolate.
I didn’t weigh out the amount of chocolate I used to make these cornflakes so the amount might differ.
Yields 62 petite cup liners
250g-300g dark compound chocolate
1 box cornflakes cereal (medium box)
- Melt the compound chocolate in a large bowl over double boiler (bain marie).
- *Turn off the heat once fully melted and pour cornflakes into bowl, stirring well until cornflakes are well coated with chocolate.
- While mixture is still warm, quickly spoon mixture into individual cups. (do it fast like a ninja cause compound chocolate hardens easily)
*At this point, continue placing your bowl on the double boiler so that the compound chocolate remains liquid.
Thats it. Pretty easy huh?
