Sleepy Sunday: Easter chocolate cornflake cakes















Happy Easter everyone! The Dormouse team are celebrating by having a special Easter lunch, inbetween the chocolate eggs of course. 

It's a day for families, so here's a lovely traditional recipe you can make with kids of all ages to use up those leftover Easter eggs...

Cornflake Cakes
You will need

50 g butter
100 g dark chocolate, broken into small pieces
2.5 tbsp golden syrup
80 g cornflakes

Small packet of mini chocolate eggs

How to make them

Place the butter and the chocolate  in a saucepan with the golden syrup. Slowly melt over a low heat, stirring. When the mixture is well blended, stir in the cornflakes.

Place some small paper cake cases on a tray. Fill each one with a heaped tablespoon of the mixture. Top with a mini chocolate egg. Put in the fridge to set.
