Honey joys and holidays

I was never one for chocolate crackles.

When I was a child, at birthday parties, kids went crazy for them, but I didn't touch them. For my birthday parties, I always asked Mum to make me honey joys.

I love to make these for my own children now, using my Mum's original recipe that had been clipped from the side of a Kelloggs Cornflakes box, sometime during the mid seventies. I like to make them on my kids birthday's or over the school holidays, when there is usually plenty of kids around to enjoy the treat. I have a feeling I will be whipping up some honey joys these holidays, as we are going to visit our cousins.

We are going to be away for 3 weeks. Our family's first road trip. I will not be blogging here during my time away, but I am sure to be back with lots of new food inspiration.

Until then.... enjoy your own school holidays (if you are a mum) and happy cooking.

Honey Joys

makes 24

• 90 grams butter
• 1/3 cup caster sugar
• 1 tablespoon honey
• 4 cups cornflakes

Preheat oven to 150 degrees. Set out the paper patty cases onto a tray. In a saucepan, heat the butter, sugar and honey until the butter has melted and the mixture is frothy. Add the cornflakes and mix well. Spoon into the patty cases and bake for 10 minutes.

Oh.... and another thing, totally unrelated.....

Since changing my template a few weeks ago, I have noticed quiet a few posts with spacing problems, both in the recipes and between the pictures. I don't like to leave this space this way, but I haven't had the time to fix the problem. If you are visiting or cooking from this space, I apologise in advance for some higgledy piggledy posts that you might find.

It is the first thing on my 'to do' list when I return from holidays. We should be back to normal in no time.

  1. I have never heard of Honey Joys, but I grew up in NZ. Are they an Australian thing? They look like a good party food for kids.


Thanks for stopping by. I'd love to hear what's happening in your kitchen. If you've tried one of my recipes, I'd like to know what you thought? Do you have some advice to make it better? Did you find a mistake? Perhaps it is a new favourite in your home?
