Chocolate Coated Corn flaxe
Wishing all my blogger Friends a Merry Christmas !!!
I made these chocolate coated cornflakes treats for my friends kids along with rum cake. They simply loved it !
T hough this seems to be a very easy quick treat for children, one has to be very careful to obtain very smooth, shiny melted chocolate. Before putting chocolate on top of the double boiler (water filled container) do break it in tiny pieces as this will melt quickly.
Since water is the biggest enemy of chocolate, so even a drop of water is enough to ruin your batch. So make sure your top bowl is totally dry. And make sure that the steam is trapped between the bottom filled pan and top bowl that has chocolate.
Chocolate scorches easily so melt it over very slow heat. Never let the water to boil as over heating will make the chocolate lose it's flavour and turn coarse.
200 gm of Dark chocolate
2 small boxes of Corn Flakes
Sprinkles of hundreds and thousands
Utensils you need:
1 small Saucepan
1 Heat safe bowl that fits on the saucepan
1 big Tray
Place a sheet of butter paper on tray or keep paper cups ready. Keep aside.
Put water filled saucepan on low heat. Place tiny pieces of chocolates in heat safe bowl and put it on top of saucepan.
NOTE: The chocolate bowl should not touch the water. And heat should be minimum. Don't cover with lid on top of chocolate.
Stir chocolate frequently. When the chocolate appears to be shiny, switch off the heat. Remove from the pot of water and stir the chocolate as it melts and looks glossy. Pour the cornflakes in fast and coat well with chocolate. Quickly spoon this mixture on paper cups or on butter paper directly. Sprinkle hundreds and thousands over these. Refrigerate them for 20-25 minutes. Gift wrap them.
