Sweets of the sweetest kind can be a tad addictive and if you've ever tasted a Honey Joy then you'll know what I'm talking about.
The word joy is also depicted as pleasure, delight and bliss. After you've had a Honey Joy you'll realise how this scrumptious little sweet acquired the 'joy' part of its name. I like to believe it's because of the immediate joy that floods your tastebuds as you bite through layers of cornflake, sugar, honey and butter.
Now I didn't say this was a healthy sweet (which is fairly obvious by the ingredients involved), however, it will prove to be a hit for birthday parties, morning teas, picnics and family snacks.
I don't agree with the saying 'the way to a man's heart is through his stomach', nevertheless, I will state that your popularity score card with your hubby is bound to increase by a few points after feeding him some of these treats.
Honey Joys are really easy to make and will take less than ½ hour of your time (not including washing up). This recipe makes about 20 small or 10 large Honey Joys. Just double the recipe if you want more.
UTENSILS / EQUIPMENT Muffin or Patty Cake Tray Patty Cake Cases Large Bowl for stirring the cornflakes and mixture together
Wooden spoon or another large spoon Saucepan
1/3 cup white sugar
1 tablespoon honey
4 cups of Corn Flakes
VARIATION IN INGREDIENTS
I used raw sugar instead of white sugar. For the corn flakes, I used Kellogg's but you can substitute it with another brand if you prefer. For extremely good value check out Coles home brand corn flakes. You can pick up a large family sized box for only a couple of dollars.
1. Turn your oven to 150°C.
2. Get out your cupcake or muffin tray and line with patty cake cases.
3. Fill a bowl with the required amount of cornflakes.
4. Turn the stove onto low heat. Put the butter, sugar and honey together in a saucepan and melt together until frothy. Stir occasionally. The ingredients melt pretty fast so don't leave your stove unattended.
5. Pour the mixture over the cornflakes and mix well with wooden spoon.
6. Put mixture into patty cake cases.
7. Bake in the oven for ten minutes.
8. Allow the Honey Joys to cool and harden for at least 15 minutes before eating.
