During school holidays I like to make and bake things with my children. That is how these honey bites came to fruition. They are inspired by my love of crunchy nut cornflakes but don’t tell my children. I never buy them. Nor Frosties, sugar puffs or coco pops. I prefer to make them instead and I was lucky enough to be given the most dark, fragrant, intoxicating honey from my good friend in Australia along with some beautiful pink sea salt. Both of which found their way into this recipe so thank you so much Sanae!
I am sending these over to CREDIT CRUNCH MUNCH hosted by Fab Food 4 All & Fuss Free Flavours. They were made using a box of Cornflakes that were not getting eaten, peanuts which were on discount and the honey and sea salt were gifts. I had all the other ingredients to hand. Thrifty!
- 100 g Runny honey
- 165 g Light brown sugar
- 75 g Unsalted butter
- 1 tsp Vanilla extract
- 1/4 tsp Ground cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp Sea salt flakes
- 120 g Cornflakes
- 150 g Roasted unsalted peanuts roughly chopped
n a saucepan melt the honey, butter and sugar letting the mixture bubble away for a couple pf minutes,
Take the mixture off the heat and add in the vanilla, cinnamon and seas salt flakes,
Measure out the Cornflakes and chopped peanuts into a mixing bowl,
Pour in the melted honey mixture and stir well to combine,
Place a teaspoon of the mixture into little mini muffin/petit four cases and let the mixture set in the fridge for at least an hour,
If you don't have mini paper cases just shape the mixture with your hands and form into bite size clusters,
Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
These crunchy bites are perfect as a sweet snack but also could be broken up and added to your morning bowl of cereal.
