Chocolate Cornflakes Cookies are the perfect blend of crunchy cornflakes and rich chocolate, baked to perfection. I like to mix in chopped almonds for an extra flavor.

They are a fantastic treat for anyone who loves the combination of chocolate and a crispy texture. Not only are they scrumptious, but they’re also super easy to make in under 15 minutes with just 4 ingredients – no baking involved!

Here in Switzerland, they are especially popular during the Christmas season, but they can be enjoyed all year round. 🎄

Ingredients

See recipe card for quantities.

  • Chocolate – I prefer using a bar of dark chocolate as it’s the healthiest of all chocolate types. You can also use chocolate chips.
  • Butter – The melted chocolate blends better when mixed with some fat. It also gives the Cornflakes Cookies a great shine. You can use unsalted butter, vegan butter, or coconut oil. I opted for vegan butter.
  • Cornflakes -They provide the crispiness! Please use sugar-free cornflakes.
  • Almonds – They add a bit more flavor. You can use roughly chopped almonds, ground almonds, or slivered almonds.

Visual Step-by-Step Instructions

For first-time success, I’ve created a visual guide with step-by-step pictures. This is especially recommended for baking beginners.

Mix the cornflakes and almonds in a large bowl. Roughly chop the chocolate, melt over a double boiler, then fold in the butter.

Pour the melted chocolate over the cornflakes and gently mix until all the cornflakes are coated with chocolate. Use two spoons to form mounds and place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Let the Chocolate Cornflakes Cookies dry at room temperature for about 2 hours. I don’t recommend drying or storing the finished cookies in the fridge, as this could cause them to turn white.

Variations

  • Different Types of Chocolate: Feel free to use white or milk chocolate. This recipe is also a great way to repurpose Easter chocolate bunnies! 🐰
  • Nuts: Instead of almonds, you can use walnuts, pecans, peanuts, or hazelnuts. Sunflower seeds or pumpkin seeds are a great nut-free alternative.
  • Dried Fruits: Raisins, dried cranberries, or chopped apricots add a fruity sweetness.
  • Spices: Ground cinnamon or cardamom give the Chocolate Cornflakes Cookies a special touch.
  • Coconut Flakes: For a hint of the exotic.
  • Sea Salt: A pinch enhances the chocolate flavor. I like to sprinkle mine with sea salt flakes before drying.
  • Sugar Pearls or Edible Glitter: Perfect for decorating and adding a festive touch.
  • Vegan: If using vegan butter and vegan chocolate, you can easily prepare a vegan version.
  • Gluten-Free: Unsweetened cornflakes should be gluten-free, but be sure to check the label if you are sensitive to gluten. Some brands use some flavoring that contains gluten, but mostly only used in sweetened cornflakes.
