This is a recipe that I used to make with my childhood friend Shari Hart — it was from Grade 7 Home Economics cooking class.
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/4 cup + 2 Tablespoons cocoa powder (unsweetened)
- 1/4 cup + 2 Tablespoons butter
- 1/2 cup corn syrup
- 4 cups Corn Flakes (dry cereal)
In a heavy bottomed saucepan or top of double boiler, mix together sugar, cocoa powder, butter, and corn syrup. Heat over medium heat until boiling; boil for one minute. Remove from burner. Stir in cornflakes until well mixed, but try not to break up too much. Spread out on to buttered cookie sheet into an 8″ x 16″ shape, or drop into cookie-sized pieces. Cool completely; cut large piece into small squares. Store in tightly sealed container.
