Recipe: Honey Cornflakes Cup

This week, I have been baking lots of pineapple nastar rolls... about 400 of them, all nicely packed to be gifted to good friends as well as serving to guests visiting us during the CNY period. My kids will also be bringing some to school for their CNY party - my daughter brought some to school the other day, which she shared with two of her best friends, and they have been asking her to ask her mummy to let her bring more during the party. :D

Other than pineapple tarts, I also made these honey cornflakes cup for them to share with their classmates. I chose this because it's really easy to make and kids love them! This is based on my almond honey joys recipe but this time I've cut out the sugar completely, using only honey and butter and then mixed in some chocolate chips and almond flakes. Oh and topped it with a heart since it's Valentine's Day on Saturday ;)

Crispy, crunchy and sweet - hope the kids will enjoy their treats in school.

Honey Cornflakes Cup
Recipe by Baby Sumo, adapted from here
Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 10-12 minutes
Makes 28-30

150g salted butter
6 tbsp honey
A pinch of salt
8 cups cornflakes (500g)
1 cup almond flakes
2 tbsp chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 170°C (no fan). Line 2 muffin trays with paper cases. 

2. In a saucepan over medium low heat, melt butter, honey and salt until it is bubbling. Remove from heat and stir in cornflakes and almonds until well coated. (Note: You can do it in 2 batches for ease of handling)

3. Spoon cornflakes mixture into paper case lined muffin pans, then sprinkle with chocolate chips.

4. Bake in preheated oven for 10-12 minutes or until golden. Cool completely in pans before serving. Store in airtight containers to keep them crispy and crunchy.

Note: If you're making these for CNY, you can make them in mini muffin cases and bake for 6-7 minutes.

  1. Hi Yen,
    Oh!! These are such delightful cornflakes snack.
    Kids will love this to bits even adult too :)

  2. 400 tarts!!! that's a Herculean achievement! :D these cornflake cupcakes/muffins look and sound super-tempting too ... i'm pretty positive that your kids' friends will wish that you were their mom! :)

  3. I've seen all of your pineapple tarts on IG! You've made so many and they look so delicious! :D

  4. Hi Yen,
    Lovely cookies! I'm not making any cookies this year, no time at all. My days are occupied! I may not be able to participate for your CNY event. I'll try!

  5. Hi Yen!
    Such an awesome idea to serve these little delicious treats in a pretty little muffin cup! I also thought that the mini paper liners were way too small and a waste when as we usually eat more than 3 servings at a go! I'm going to get the kids to help me out with this and throw in s couple of raisins too. Thanks for sharing!

  6. Hi Yen I am so tempted to make these for my kids because I know they would love them. But I worry they may keep asking me to make!!

  7. Hi Yen,

    You have baked 400 nastar tarts!!! Wow!

    These honey cornflakes cups look yummy too! You must be relived that you don't have to bake 400 of these... or do you???


  8. That 400 pineapple nastar rolls is quite an effort. You must have spend a lot of time on them. Children loves cakes and chocolates. So I had Franco Freshy’s catering service in Toronto bring up special occasion cakes which really did work wonder at my son’s birthday party and kids just loved to indulge in them. To add to it I prepared chocolate tarts, which really did go along with those delicate cakes. I have a children’s outing coming up and I was confused as to what to make for them. I guess your honey cornflakes cup will be worth an effort and I will try it out for sure.
