It’s a little bit liable to break your teeth, but loveable all the same.

With it being the last week of term, I was on a mission to use up all the random crap in my cupboard this week. Coincidentally, we had our last Bring Your Own Bake meeting with an Easter theme on Wednesday, so I looked at my half-full bag of Sainsburys’ Basics Cornflakes and the weird amount of dark cooking chocolate that I’ve managed to accumulate and made this classic. It’s no bake, no stress, and three types of chocolate – you can’t go far wrong.

Easter Chocolate Cornflake Slice

Ingredients:

  • 300g cornflakes
  • 200g milk chocolate
  • 300g dark chocolate
  • 300g white chocolate
  • mini eggs {2 packets}
  • 2 tbsp golden syrup
  • 50g unsalted butter

Method:

Crush up the cornflakes with your hands into a large mixing bowl.

Melt together the milk chocolate, dark chocolate, golden syrup and butter in a heatproof bowl over a pan of gently simmering water.

Pour the chocolate mixture onto the cornflakes and stir through until evenly coated.

Tip the mixture into a lined rectangular tin and flatten down with a spoon or spatula. Put into the fridge to set.

Melt the white chocolate and pour it on top of the slice, spreading it out with a knife. Decorate with the mini eggs in rows, and return to the fridge to set up a little longer. Cut into pieces – you can do 3 eggs to a piece or cut them into smaller squares which are a bit more manageable to eat.

You can dust with cocoa powder, or I used edible glitter… because, reasons. 😉
