2 tbsp margarine / butter
2 tbsp golden syrup
2 tbsp cocoa powder
12 heaped tbsp cornflakes / rice krispies
12 paper cake cases


Melt the margarine, golden syrup and cocoa powder together over a low heat in a pan big enough to take the cornflakes as well.

When all three have melted into a smooth double-cream consistency liquid, add the cornflakes and mix well so that all the flakes are coated.

Spoon mixture equally into each cake case and put into the fridge for 1 hour to set.
