Kids in the Kitchen

Tonight we made my version of Honey Crackles. Its pretty much the standard recipe that you find on the cornflakes box with a little twist. Tonight we baked them in patty pans (makes about 24), but as an alternative, you can bake it as a slab, making sure you press into a lined pan quite firmly. You will need to cook it a bit longer. While its still warm cut into bars (but leave it in the tin). When cold, remove form the tin and recut. Homemade Crunchy Nut Bars! 

4 cups Cornflakes
1/2 cup crushed nuts
100g Butter
1/2 cup Caster Sugar
2 Tblspn Honey

Place butter, sugar and honey in a saucepan. Heat slowly until the sugar dissolves then increase the heat until the mixture boils and becomes frothy.
Mix the  nuts and the cornflakes together. Pour 1/3 of the cornflakes / nuts into the saucepan and mix well. Pour all this back into the bowl with the rest of the cornflakes and mix well.
Place into patty pans that have been placed in a muffin pan. Pack the mixture in well. Bake at 150C for 10 minutes. Allow to cool in the pan. Try to eat just one!
