Supremely easy no-bake chocolate cornflake cups recipe for Mother’s Day.

This is perfect for Mother’s Day because anyone can make this. I’m serious…..whether you’re a man, woman, young or old, a pro or completely inept in cooking, YOU CAN STILL MAKE THIS.

# – No-bake chocolate cornflake cups for Mother’s Day :)

It is delicious, crunchy and superbly chocolatey. And believe it or not, all can be done within 1/2 hour! The recipe serves 18, so there will be plenty to go around but make sure Mom gets the largest share!

The ingredients:

  • 50gm butter
  • 100 gm of dark chocolate (60% cocoa and above)
  • 50 gm caster sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of golden syrup
  • 100 gm cornflakes

# – First of all, dump dark chocolates, butter and sugar into a bowl suspended over a pot of boiling water. It’s okay if the the bottom of the bowl touches the water. Stir till everything’s melted.

Of course, you can melt them up in a bowl in the microwave at High for 2 minutes ;)

# – Then dump in a tablespoon of golden syrup. Stir till combined…

# – Then throw in the cornflakes. Turn off the heat.

# – With a metal spoon, mix till cornflakes are well coated with chocolate sauce. Do this as fast as you can so the corn flakes won’t be soggy.

# – Lay out 18 cupcake liners and put a tablespoon of cornflake mixture into each cup.

# – Stick it in the fridge for 1/2 hour.

# – 30 minutes later….voila! No-bake chocolate cornflake cups, DONE!

# – They are so, so, so delicious! Crunchy and chocolatey, the perfect combo!

As the recipe uses dark chocolate, it’s not too sweet, so I believe even the most stoic Moms with no sweet tooth will succumb! By the way, store them in the fridge. They won’t melt but they will go soft in high humidity.

So, have you planned anything for your Mom? Besides this chocolatey snack, I’ve got something else up my sleeve too. Will blog about it next week :D

I’m so excited!!!!

Have a Happy Mother’s Day weekend to all Mothers! <3
