Chocolate cornflake clusters recipe.
I watch a foodie channel on my Roku called ifood.tv. It is a free foodie network station where they share food videos and recipes on it. One of the recipe they made was these Chocolate Cornflake Clusters. As I watched the video on how to make them I thought they looked easy to make. So thought I’d give it a try.
I mixed up the ingredients to make the chocolatey mixture. Then added it to the cornflakes. After that I spooned the cornflake mixture into a muffin pan lined with paper liners. I cooled them in the refrigerator for a little while. Removed them and had a fun snack! They were different. These would be a great snack for kids but no kids in my house except my fiancée. He liked them and even shared a few with the guys at work. So these are not only for kids but grown men too: even for us women. They’re for everyone!

How to make golden syrup
The only ingredient I didn’t have was the golden syrup so I found a recipe on an online forum to make my own. It was an added touch to the recipe because it was homemade and not from a bottle. It called for 1 tbsp water where I used 3 tbsps. I also added 1 tbsp of butter pancake syrup. This makes just enough to add to the chocolate mixture for the clusters.
- ¼ cup sugar
- ½ tsp vinegar
- 3 tbsp. water
- ⅓ cup light corn syrup
- 1 tbsp. butter pancake syrup
- In a small saucepan add sugar so that is covers the bottom of the pan evenly.
- Then sprinkle the vinegar and water on top.
- Cook over a low heat without stirring for 5 minutes.
- Add butter pancake syrup; then increase heat to medium and cook syrup for about another 5 minutes or until it has a light caramel color.
- Remove from heat. Add corn syrup.
- Do not stir for 2 to 3 minutes so it can bubble.
- When the bubbling stops, stir well.
- If you have leftovers; store at room temperature
