What is the secret of making chocolate cornflake crisps?
I melted some chocolate in a bowl over a saucepan of water, added a dash of milk, stirred it, and threw in some cornflakes and tried to mix it all up.
The mixture stuck to the spoon, and then to my fingers when I tried to shape them into round balls of equal size, and finally they stuck to the plate.
I put them in the fridge to harden, then took them out, and they looked a right mess, and had to be scraped off the plate with a knife to loosen them.
They tasted nice, but were, on balance, a dismal failure, and not the sort of dish one would offer the Queen on her Diamond Jubilee!
I add a dab of butter to the chocolate; jut a little so that the chocolate become less sticky. When stirring I use a wooden spoon sprayed with cooking spray. The wooden spoon holds the cooking spray whereas the spray slides off plastic and metal spoon.
I never bother with making balls unless it for a party, but when I do I form the ball and roll them in powdered sugar so that they hold their shape better. Otherwise I drop them by the teaspoonful onto wax paper. These kinds of cookie always do better with wax paper. If you have to store them then layer the cookie with wax paper in a covered container.
Hope this helps.
I tried putting them onto wax paper, and it was much more successful, so I shall remember that in future.

Sweet, melting chocolate or crunchy, salty crisps, which would you pick?On this most chocolate filled of days! Are you more tempted by the sweet, smooth chocolate egg or the lure of salty, crunchy, savoury crisps?

The big question: whether to use your fingers, a fork or a spoon to eat chocolate cake! Is it rude to eat it with your fingers? Personally, I vary between the three...sometimes using a spork! What does everyone else...
