Cornflake Afghan Cookies

Yes, we STILL have a regular glut of Cornflakes here and this recipe is thanks to the lovely Bright Side of Life.  Warning: these cookies may not look like much, but they are seriously addictive.  The pile was demolished so fast that I didn't even get the chance to ice them, as suggested.  They disappeared faster than my Brownies do, and that's saying something!  So it would be a crime not to share, right?

So this is my version of the recipe:


200g (7 oz) Butter or cooking margarine
75g (3 oz) Castor Sugar
175g (6 oz) Self Raising Flour
25g (1 oz) Cocoa Powder (not drinking chocolate)
50g (2oz) Cornflakes

Put the oven on at 180 degrees C (350 degrees F)
Cream the butter and sugar together in a large mixing bowl.
Sieve the flour and cocoa into the bowl.
Crush the Cornflakes and add them into the bowl.
Put spoonfuls onto a greased baking tray and bake for about 20 minutes depending on size.

When cool, they can be decorated with chocolate icing and a walnut half. But that didn't happen here.

  1. They look delicious. I am so glad that you shared the recipe, although it is a wee bit different from mine. I only use butter and I throw in the cornflakes uncrushed and just mix them all in. I laughed when I read about the icing. To be truthful, I do leave a few without icing as my son prefers them plain. Thank you for the mention. xx
    P.S. I have never added the walnuts, hehehe. :-)

  2. Those look delicious and so simple to make and even with my picky eater, I bet that Griffin will like them. Besides, I would like to try them too. Thanks for the recipe.
