Honey Joys

Honey Joys

I wish I could say these were named after me, but no they were not, it’s just a coincidence.  Anyway this recipe is years old and has been a favorite of small children everywhere. They often appear at markets and fates and the odd childrens parties.  Honey Joys remind me so much of children, and when they grow up it seems that the recipe is forgotten, never to be made again. So here it is one more time!


4 cups of cornflakes
⅓ cup of sugar
90 grams butter or margarine
1 tablespoon honey


Preheat the oven to 150° C
In a large saucepan melt butter
Add sugar, honey and cornflakes heat until it froths
Fold in cornflakes and remove from the heat
Line a tray with baking paper
Set up rows of patty pans (makes 24)
Quickly fill each patty pan with a good scoop of the mixture
Put in a the oven heated at 150° C for 10 minutes
Remove from oven and let cool


Better eaten on the day
Can be kept in an air tight container
You can experiment with the large patty pans
Great for lunch boxes
Honey Joys are great for kids’ parties and as snack
