  • Pan
  • Mixing Bowl
  • Muffin Tray and Cases


  • 25 gms Butter Preferred Unsalted
  • 50 gms Dark Chocolate or Milk Chocolate broken into chunks
  • 150 gms Conflakes
  • 2 tbsp Golden Syrup need less if its milk chocolate


  • Weigh the ingredients. I did it myself, with mylittle one helping to pour ingredients into the weighing scales. You can let older children do this by themselves though.
  • Put the cornflakes in a large bowl.Get it done by your junior chef because he or she will probably be able tohandle it on your own.
  • Put butter, chocolate, and golden syrup ina saucepan. A microwavable bowl is an alternative if you plan to cook it in themicrowave. Melt the ingredients over a low heat (or heat briefly in themicrowave).
  • Allow the mix to cool a little and pour overthe cornflakes.
  • Top them with chocolate eggs to make theminteresting, though you can play with your imagination by topping them withgems, jellos or even chopped fresh kiwis and strawberries


And your chocolate cornflake cupcakes are ready to serve.
The recipe is super-easy and incredibly quick, just perfect for young children who are first-timers in the kitchen. And you can let the older ones make them independently. One piece of advice I have for parents cooking with little ones is to be careful with the hob. The best thing about the recipe is that each of the ingredients has nutritional value, which means that you won’t end up feeling guilty about serving an unhealthy snack to your kids. All the ingredients are easily available at home, so lockdown is not the reason to worry. The calorie count is low, so you can relish one without worrying about the scales.
So go ahead and mix up these yummy muffins in just a few minutes!
