Cornflakes Chocolate Chip Cookies


These are the best cookies I have baked so far. They came about when I baked Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies and wanted to use up the other half block of butter.

Since I still had some cornflakes in the pantry and milk chocolate chips in the fridge, I decided to try out these Cornflakes Chocolate Chip Cookies. I figured that chocolate chip cookies would taste awesome coated with cornflakes (as with most cookies).


After mixing the chocolate chips into the dough, I still had about 1/2 cup of chocolate chips leftover. That's when I decided to press them onto the dough and I thought the cookies looked rather cute.


Once the first batch was baked and cooled, I took one to sample. Oh la...la...la...la.... so nice lah! The cookies were so crunchy and buttery and chocolaty. Gorgeous!

I couldn't stop eating.


This is not good for my waistline but at that point I simply did not care. Crunch...crunch...crunch.....


I prefer to use semi-sweet chocolate chips as milk chocolate chips tend to melt in our hot weather. When I did the decorating, it was not too bad as I had kept the chocolate chips in the fridge and they were nice and firm.

But as time went by, they started getting soft and gooey. But it was OK since I was already making the last 3 or 4 cookies. The thing is, milk chocolate chips taste nicer and richer, which obviously, I love.

As with baking, when you are nearing the end of your last batch, either you end up with not enough ingredients or you have quite a bit leftover. So. My second batch of cookies were studded with more than 3 chocolate chips and the last one had only one.


I would say that these cookies made me very happy and I know that I must bake them again. So I have me two canisters of cookies in the fridge, to keep them fresh and crunchy, a method I learnt from a blogger friend. 


So please go ahead and bake these and by all means, double the recipe!

  11. You are really on a cookie roll. We used to make a Honey Jumbles with cornflakes - not quite a biscuit but more of a sweet snack in a cupcake wrapper.
