This honey joys recipe is one of my favourites!
My kids like helping me make them, especially for birthday parties.
When we’re making this honey joys recipe, my kids’ favourite job is to mix the butter, sugar and honey together with the cornflakes. They are also really good at spooning the mixture into the patty pan with paper cases.
These sweet treats are more than just a sweet treat and an awesome birthday party (or sneaky) lunchbox snack… they’re a trip down memory lane, too!
Whether you’re a little kid or a big one, the crispy crackle of this Honey Joys Recipe is so good.
So easy to follow you hardly even need a recipe.
These crunchy delights are so many Mums’ go-to because we will usually have all the ingredients in the pantry and fridge! Honey lasts forever, butter is always there, and Corn Flakes are everyone’s favourite cereal! If you want to tailor your Honey Joys Recipe to better suit your family and kids’ preferences, it’s so simple! You could switch out the honey for Rice Malt Syrup and if you only have Rice Bubbles they could work too.
In this Honey Joys Recipe extra sugar is optional, especially because the honey is sugar itself. You could also add in dried fruit like cranberries or small, cut-up pieces of dried apple. One of my favourite additions are pieces of peach cut up and dried overnight!
Our favourite flakes for these are actually Woolworths Crunchy Corn Flakes – they make the perfect texture. But of course any brand of corn flakes is fine.
Sometimes I’ll let the kids add chocolate chips or decorate with sprinkles. YUM!
