Easy sweet honey almond cornflakes clusters or cups are made with only 6 ingredients and they are perfect for Chinese New Year celebrations or any holiday sweet treats.
Another easy and one of my favorite Chinese New Year treats I like to make besides this easy no-bake chocolate cornflakes clusters is this honey almond cornflakes. Both of these are highly addicting and it’s hard to stop eating them. They are gone pretty quickly at our house.
The recipe rundown
Taste: Buttery with the right amount of sweetness
Pros: Can I say it again, easy?
I use regular plain unsweetened cornflakes
I use unsalted butter. You can also use ghee or coconut oil
I use raw honey. You can substitute with agave nectar
4. Granulated sugar
Granulated sugar is common in the U.S. You can also use castor sugar
5. Sliced almonds
I use store-bought thinly sliced almonds
How to easily make honey almond cornflakes cups
1. Preheat oven to 350 F (180 C). Melt butter in a large pan or skillet over medium heat
2. Add sugar and honey and stir until it melts. Turn off the hea
3. Stir in cornflakes, sliced almonds, and raisins
4. Combine until they are coated with the butter mixture
5. Scoop the mixture into mini muffin cups.
6. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown.
7. They will appear soft and not sticking together yet but once they cool down completely, they will harden and stick together
These babies stay crispy for weeks if you keep them in an air-tight container. It never lasts for more than 3 days in our house though!
A good honey almond cornflakes cups or clusters should not fall apart when you take off the paper to eat it. It may stick a bit to the bottom of the paper because of the caramelized sugar and honey, but it should stay in one cluster.
