Recipe type: Dessert, Snack
Cuisine: Traybake, Slice, Squares
Serves: 20
  • 2½ cups (185g) of crushed cornflakes
  • ¾ cup (135g) of sultanas
  • ½ cup (95g) of chopped glace cherries
  • ⅔ cup (230g) of sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 heaped cup (200g) of dark or milk chocolate melts
  1. Line a 23 cm (9 inch) square baking tin* with baking paper and preheat oven to 180 °C (350 °F).
  2. Combine the cornflakes, sultanas, cherries, and sweetened condensed milk in a large bowl and mix well.
  3. Press the mixture into the prepared tin and bake for 20 minutes.
  4. Allow to cool completely in the tin before removing and cutting into squares.
  5. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler.
  6. Spread melted chocolate over the underside of the squares (for this step I dip each square into the melted chocolate and then spread it with a flat butter knife).
  7. To decorate the underside of each square use the tines of a fork to make a swirling pattern in the chocolate before it sets (optional).
* I have also made these squares in a 20cm x 30cm (8 x 12 inch) rectangular slice tin.
