Mombie’s Quick Chocolate fix cakes

I say it on everything but this recipe is so easy, that’s my style of cooking/baking, bake off queen I am not, but maker of quick tasty treats, yep that’s me. I will get round to posting other recipes that take a little longer soon, the thing is when you’re a mum of two under two, with a hubby that works long hours and a mad dog, and a love of crafting, it’s hard to fit everything in.

These are fab because unlike most rice crispie/cornflake chocolate cake these don’t contain actual chocolate but they still give you a fix if you need a little something and can’t face the shops and they’re only 4 ingredients (unless you add more). You’ll see in my photo’s I have used branded items, I rarely ever buy branded but all of these were on offer and worked out cheaper than the supermarket own brand so use whatever you have.

So let’s get to it:

Ingredients at the ready


50g (2oz) Butter

2 TBLSP Golden Syrup (I sometimes add a tiny bit more purely because I love it)

50g (2oz) Hot Chocolate drinking powder

50g (2oz) cornflakes (or whatever cereal you want to use)



Melt the butter and golden syrup in a pan on the hob on a low setting.

Add in the drinking chocolate powder (ideally sifted not the end of the world if not)

I’m not going to lie, this does not look overly appetising here….

Add in the cornflakes and stir until fully covered.

Remove from heat and spoon the yumminess into some fairy cake cases (makes about 12). You can leave to set on the side or pop in the fridge to speed up the process.

You can add other things to these, in my photo I’ve added some cake decorating chocolate beans because I found them in the cupboard, marshmallows would probably be tasty too although not too much as it’s quite sweet already. Let me know if you add anything! Enjoy.


Oh and I made these yesterday morning at 9am, it is 8pm and I’m eating the last one, having warned my husband on pain of his genitals not to eat it earlier! They’re very moreish
