Lola’s Kitchen is a feature on Lola’s Reviews where I talk about all things related to food, cooking and baking. These posts can be recipe posts or more discussion type posts about food. I love cooking and spend some time in the kitchen almost every day, so I wanted to give it a place on my blog as well. The banner for this feature is designed by Michelle from Limabean Design.
I can’t remember where we once found this recipe, if I remeber correctly my sister learned it from a friend in high school. I translated the title directly from the Dutch term we use for this.
This recipe is easy and quick to make, the ingredients are cheap and the end result is delicious.
I wrote the recipe in this post myself as I have no idea where the original recipe is.
I usually take 3 bars semi sweet chocolate and one bar dark chocolate, but it doesn’t really matter how many chocolate you use or which flavour. You can also use chocolate chips, chocolate chips are pretty expensive here in the Netherlands so that’s why I usualy use bars (and then the cheapest brand I can find). I use 400 grams of chocolate, so that’s about 2 cups of chocolate. I really have no idea how many cornflakes to use, I always keep adding cornflakes till the texture looks right. It sounds vague now, but it makes more sense after reading the recipe.
1. I always melt the chocolate au bain marie, so first search for two pans. I use on normal pan and one saucepan. Make sure the smaller one fits into the other pan, but doesn’t hit the bottom. Then fill the biggest pan (the normal pan) with water and put it on the stove. Make sure the water boils.
It’s a bit difficult to explain the exact amount of cornflakes to trow in, but basically these will taste good regardless of whether there are too many or too little cornflakes in them. I usually keep trowing in cornflakes as long as I can keep covering all the pices in chocolate and then stop when it looks approximately like this:
(lol, it looks like the spoon is glowing on the picture, but that’s just the sun reflecting of it ;))
6. Pick another spoon and take a spoonfull of the mixture and put it on the baking paper covered plate. Scrap it of the spoon with the other spoon. And repeat this till the plate is filled. I usually managed to fill 2 slightly large plates.
Then pick them up and put them in a bowl and they can be eaten :). Do make sure to put what you don’t eat back in the fridge as they can melt when they aren’t in the fridge for long periods of time.
