Uploaded a new recipe using honey version as in red .
All these while, i am blogging traditional cookies and never really blog a trendy cookie.. In order to diversify my cookies recipe, I have decided to blog this rather trendy cookies commonly served during Chinese New Year..
Most kids will like this cookie as it is prepared using corn flakes. As contrast to other melt in the mouth cookies, is a crispy cookies full of cereal flavour.
I am not new to this cookies as my nieces like to prepare this during Chinese New Year. Most of the recipes in the net need to bake this simple cookies for about 10 minutes and I have purposely chosen one recipe that is no-bake version. It was prepared using peanut butter instead of normal butter.. It is a real simple easy to remember recipe. Variations are many including the nuts and the type of breakfast cereals to be used. I have added some sunflower seeds to the cookies and I loved the crunchiness of both the nuts and the corn flakes.
For those who do not have oven at home, this is one cookie that you can try.. Trust me, not only kids love the cookies, even adults like my wife love it very much .. lol.
WHAT IS REQUIRED
Servings: About 24 cookies
Peanut butter version
45 –60 grams of corn flake
45 grams of peanut butter
45 grams of castor sugar
45 grams of honey or corn syrup
Some small paper cups
- 400 grams of corn flakes honey crunch
- 150 grams of butter
- 200 grams of honey or golden syrup or maltose or a combination of these three**
STEPS OF PREPARATION
In a non stick pan, melt the peanut butter, honey or syrup and castor sugar. Bring to boil under low heat. Let it simmer for 1-2 minutes until all the sugar dissolved. Off the heat, add in the corn flakes, stir until well mixed. While it is hot, put a teaspoon of corn flakes on the paper cups. Let it rest in the room temperature until it hardens. Once hardened, store in a air tight container. (Note, if the cornflake is too big pieces, you can crush it into big pieces before using)
- Melt the butter and maltose or golden syrup or honey in a pan and stir until the mixture is frothy. Add the cornflakes and stir until well combined. Scope to the cornflakes to the paper cups and let it cool completely before storing in an air tight container. If preferred, you can add in nuts of your choice.
Note: I have only use 3 tablespoons of honey for flavoring, all the remaining i have used maltose to substitute.
The family have finished the whole bottle of cookies within one day. It is easy to prepare and rather addictive. If you are concern about the sweetness, you can either use more corn flakes or reduce the castor sugar by 10%. Remember that you can always add in some nuts to the recipes, be it walnut, sunflower seeds, pine seeds, almond or others..
