Honey Cornflakes Cup

After several months of hiatus (again), I'm back! We've been busy with travel (took a trip to India!) and family and friends visiting and I got a little lazy in between, the past few months. These days, I'm busy baking for Chinese New Year, a ritual I try to do every new year so that the husband and I and some of our friends get to snack on CNY cookies. And of course, my brother will also receive a care package of homemade cookies from me. =)

Anyway, I got a couple request for the recipe of one of the cookies I made; Honey Cornflake Cups. I've tasted them before but never thought to make it myself. But since, I had a big bag of cornflakes leftover from making the cornflake cookies, I decided to whip up a batch of these cute yummy stuff. I adapted the recipe from Charlene, made a few tweaks and I love the results and the simplicity of the recipe!  Here's the recipe if you want to make some for Chinese New Year or just for fun!

*Makes about 70-80 super mini cups

  • 90g Butter
  • 2 Tbsp Granulated Sugar
  • 2 Tbsp Honey
  • 4 Cups Cornflakes, Slightly Crushed
  • 3-4 Tbsp Almond Flakes, Toasted
  • 1 Tbsp Sesame Seeds, Toasted
Place the empty baking cups on a baking sheet. Preheat oven to 325F. In a pot, melt butter, sugar and honey over medium heat. Once the mixture is bubbly, turn off the heat and stir in cornflakes, almond and sesame seeds. Coat the mixture well and spoon cornflakes mixture into the mini cups. Bake the mini cups for about 12 minutes until the cornflakes are golden brown. Let the cups cool (the cornflakes will stick together when it's cool) and enjoy.
