Cooking with Kids: Chocolate Cornflake Cakes

Nuvita Biscuits

Everyone loves crispy cornflake cakes, whatever their age. Get the whole family in the kitchen to make these simple bites.


  • 50g butter
  • 100g milk or dark chocolate , broken into chunks
  • 3 tbsp golden syrup
  • 100g cornflakes


  1. Children: Weigh out the ingredients. Older children can do this by themselves with supervision and little ones can help to pour or spoon ingredients into the weighing scales. Put the butter, chocolate and golden syrup in a saucepan or microwavable bowl. Put the cornflakes in another large bowl.
  2. Grown ups: Melt the butter, chocolate and golden syrup in the saucepan over a low heat or briefly in the microwave. Allow to cool a little before pouring over the cornflakes.
  3. Children: Stir the ingredients together gently using a wooden spoon. Spoon the mixture into 12 cupcake cases arranged on a muffin tray (or baking sheet, if you don’t have one). Grown ups will need to do this for younger children or simply arrange on a tray and let the mess happen. Put in the fridge to set.


Before you start tie back any long hair, put on your aprons and wash your hands. Make sure your child is stable where they are cooking and comfortable with the angle they are cooking at. As you cook explain what the different ingredients are where they come from.

    This week I am going to make Chicken Breasts, what do you think I should make as side dishes (I need 2 or so!) and a dessert. And I know I’m asking a lot, but also if you can think of like some drinks that aren’t just some pop poured in a glass (but I do have little kids, so I can’t serve alcohol!) Thanx so much!!!!
