Baking with the Boyfriend: Easter Cornflake Cakes

Whenever I'm bored I love to go into the kitchen and bake something. I find it relaxing and a distraction from school work. Not only is it something I do by myself, but also with my boyfriend as a time to bond and have fun when bored. We often bake cookies, pancakes and other delightful treats and recently we made some cornflake cakes which are basic, family friendly and perfect for Easter. 

To Make These, We Used The Following Ingredients:

390g bar of chocolate
    A box of cornflakes (we used crunchy nut) - you could also change this up and use some rice krispies instead
A bag of mini eggs

To start with we broke the chocolate bar into chunks and put them into a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water. I then stirred the chocolate every once in a while until all the chocolate was melted.

Once the chocolate was all melted, we added the cornflakes and mixed until all the flakes were coated.

We then spooned the mixture into the cake cases using a big spoon to carry the mixture and a little spoon to scrape it off.

After that we just popped two mini eggs on top of each cake.

Finally we put the yummy treats into the fridge until the chocolate had hardened.

I hoped you enjoyed this post and be sure to stick around for more in the future! :)
