Choc Chip Cornflake Cookies

Choc chips cookies get devoured in mere hours here, especially fresh and warm out of the oven. There's just something about warm chocolate and soft sweet cookie dough that pairs beautifully with a hot cup of tea in winter, and in summer they're just sweet enough without tasting horrible one a hot day.

As I was pondering my list of cookies to bake this month, I remembered how much fun choc chip cookies could be with cornflakes added. I can't even remember when I last made these, but I do remember several occasions when I headed off to uni classes and left my brother instructions to make them before I returned. That was if he hadn't eaten all the choc chips!

So I added these to my list, and enjoyed them when they came out of the oven, as did the kids. I think Steve even snuck one into his lunch box!

125g butter, softened
2/3 cup caster sugar
1tsp vanilla
1Tbs milk
1 & 1/4 cup self raising flour
1 & 1/2 cup cornflakes
2/3 cup choc chips

* cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy
* add vanilla and milk, and mix well
* add flour, choc chips and cornflakes, and carefully mix
* place spoons full on tray, bake 180°C 12min until golden brown



  1. Mmmm corn flakes, what an interesting ingredient to add. I've heard of adding potato chips to give a sweet/salty taste but never corn flakes. I may have to try these especially since I have a box of corn flakes sitting on my refrigerator and I have another chocolate chip cookie recipe to do this month.

    I love your photography of your baking. Plateware makes such a difference in photos. My rental plateware is ugly and takes away from my pictures. I may need to hit up a thrift store for some cute/pretty plates.

  2. I never would've thought of putting the 2 together but it sounds really yummy! Will have to add these to my list to try. Trent is loving the fact your challenge is getting me into baking cookies.

  3. This sounds intriguing - I've never seen a cookie recipe with corn flakes before.
