Pink Lemonade and Chocolate Cornflake Cakes Recipe

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
120g cornflakes

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!


  1. Oh my goodness those cornflake cakes look seriously decadent! I would not be able to stop at one... They do go so well with the gorgeous pink lemonade, it looks too pretty to drink! xx

  2. Loveing the new banner, well done. The cornflake cakes look and sound delish, and I love the sweetpeas. You know the more you cut them, the more you get as it stops them from going to seed. Im cutting mine every 2-3 days in this weather and am loving them. :o)

  3. I haven't had a chocolate cornflake cake - or rice crispie cake - for years! They look lovely though. xx

  4. That looks delicious! What a perfect Sunday treat :)

  5. Thanks for your comments on my blog. Those cakes do look scrummy and I've never thought of making pink lemonade. Off to investigate, x

  6. You do know I'm trying to be good, right Miles? This is bullsh*t. Now all I want is cornflakes and chocolate for dinner. And a bouquet of sweet peas.

    p.s. Love your little social media icons! They're adorable and so dinki ;)

  7. I am glad the book is useful. Like the look of that pink lemonade! And your wild flower post - beautiful. I think I will have to have one for next year! xx
