These chocolate cornflake cakes are amazing. Quite possibly the best I've ever tasted - at least on a par with those my sister-in-law's Mum makes, and they are incredible. I may need a tray of hers and a tray of mine in order to carry out a full comparison. It's a tough job, but I'm up to the challenge!
This is how you make them:
100g milk chocolate
50g dark chocolate
75g of unsalted butter
6 tbsp golden syrup
Makes about 15 to 18 depending on how big you make them...
- Melt the chocolate, butter and golden syrup together.
- Add the cornflakes and mix until coated.
- Put spoonfuls of the mixture into cake cases and leave in the fridge to set.
In this weather I've been storing them in the fridge, even after they're set. Their chewy chocolatey-ness contrasts nicely with the crunch of the cornflakes - scrumptious!
I also made some pink lemonade last weekend, using a recipe from Peggy Porschen's Boutique Baking, given to me by my friend Anna.
It was so refreshing and delicious, perfect for this hot weather. The sweet peas are picked from our garden - they just keep coming, and we have a constant little posy of them in the house. So pretty.
Only one glass in this picture - the Lumberjack got fed up of me taking photos and just wanted to drink his lemonade!
You may have noticed that I have been working on the menu bar at the top of the page, under my heading. I now have pages for different categories - sewing, crochet, home improvements etc. It's a great way to be able to have a browse through any area you're interested in. From my point of view, I love being able to see all my projects at a glance, and reminding myself of the things I've made. So, go on, have a snoop around!
