Move over Honey Joys, there’s a new kid in town. He’s zesty, crunchy and just a little sweet.
This recipe might well become my go-to. It’s incredibly simple and delicious.
– 2 cups cornflakes
– 1/2 cup coconut (I used shredded coconut)
– 1 teaspoon grated lemon rind
– 1/4 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
– 1 tablespoon lemon juice
– 2 tablespoons water
– 125g butter
– extra coconut (I left this out)
2.Combine brown sugar, lemon juice, water and butter together in pan, stir over heat, without boiling, until sugar is dissolved. Increase heat, boil for 5 minutes, without stirring, or until mixture thickens (enough to coat the back of a spoon). The first time I did this the sugar mixture hadn’t thickened up enough and so the cornflakes didn’t hold together as well as they should. The next time, I let the sugar mixture bubble more furiously. It took more than 5 minutes, but it was a lot thicker and held the cornflakes together much better.
5.This should make about a dozen of these crunchy delights.
These are not as honey joys, which isn’t really a problem. I kept mine in the fridge and this helped.
