Kate's Kitchen: chocolate cornflake cakes

Sometimes you just need something simple – whether it’s something you make with the kids, for a tea party (eg at the upcoming RNA conference), or when you’ve just hit your deadline and you’re too tired to make cake but want something sweet…  And that’s where chocolate cornflake cakes come into their own!


  • 100g plain or milk chocolate 
  • 2tbsp golden syrup or runny honey 
  • 50g butter/margarine (not low fat spread) 
  • 75g cornflakes or other cereal 

Gently melt the butter, syrup and chocolate in a small, heavy pan.

Stir in the cornflakes.

Spoon into cupcake cases.

Put in fridge to set. (You can decorate them here, if you like – mini chocolate eggs work well at easter or if you’re just in a quirky mood.)

Kate’s latest Medical Romance, A Date with the Ice Princess, is out now in the US, UK and Australia. (This is the one with the rock star’s daughter and the thrill-seeker… and there might be a bit of ballroom dancing in there, too!) You can find out more about Kate and her books on her website (http://www.katehardy.com/) and her blog (http://katehardy.blogspot.com/); find her on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/katehardyromanceauthor
