Cornflake Chocolate Chip Bites


This month's Treat Petite Challenge has the theme of 'Childhood Memories'. I had a very happy childhood and I have lots of wonderful memories so it was difficult to pick something that encapsulates it in a bake. It's quite a broad theme and it will be interesting to see what everyone else comes up with.

I was looking for something the other day and I found an old notebook of mine which contains recipes that my mum has passed on to me. I've not seen this book in years so it was good fun looking through it and seeing old recipes that I've not made in recent times. This cornflake chocolate chip bites is one of them and it's something that my mum used to make a lot for us. It's really quick and easy to make and it's highly addictive. I honestly could have eaten the whole lot myself but I didnt! 

As mentioned I'm sending this to Treat Petite hosted by Stuart from Cakeyboi and Kat from the Baking Explorer. The theme this month is Childhood Memories.


I'm also sending it to Family Foodies hosted by Louisa from Eat Your Veg and Vanesther from Bangers and Mash. The theme this month is Barbecues, Picnics and Outdoor Eating. These little treats are quick to put together and easy to transport. They are guaranteed to impress and the kids will enjoy them as much as the adults.

  5. This recipe certainly sums up childhood baking to me. And I challenge any one not to be tempted by a cornflake crispy cake! Thanks so much for linking your recipe up to June's Family Foodies.
