Honey Cornflakes Cups (Honey Joys) Recipe

The quantities used in this recipe fills 2 baking trays and makes approximately 70 mini cases (measuring 4 cm diameter x 2 cm height).

Serves: 70 mini cornflakes cups

Prep Time: 15 mins

Cook Time: 10-12 mins


  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 50 grams unsalted butter
  • 150 grams cornflakes gently crushed to smaller pieces
  • coloured sprinkles aka jimmies or hundreds-and-thousands


  1. In a saucepan, melt butter and honey over gentle heat, until the mixture is frothy.
  2. Add crushed cornflakes into the honey butter mixture and stir to coat the cornflakes evenly.
  3. Spoon cornflakes into individual mini baking cases and top with coloured sprinkles. Bake at preheated oven of 150°C for 10-12 minutes, or until the cornflakes turn a darker shade of golden. Once cooled, store them in an airtight container.

    Hi, will it affect the texture if i use a normal cupcake liner instead on the tiny ones?


    • wiffy replied: — February 10th, 2015 @ 1:35 pm

      Yes, you can, if you don’t mind making big ones. They usually come in mini bite sizes.

    Hello! Some recipes they said to add sugar to it as well as honey and butter and melt them together! Will adding sugar make a huge difference?

      Like I mentioned in the blog write-up and comments, I have personally tried a few recipes, and the honey only version is my preferred recipe (this one). Sticks better, less sweet and simple. You can try out the different combination to decide for yourself.

    Hello Wiffy, glad that my son got to know your recipe . We had a great time in the kitchen . The texture turned out fabulous . We used Bruggen cornflakes and organic raw honey. They were so addictive and we plan to do again this week. Thanks a zillion! :)

    Hi! Thanks for sharing your recipe. I saw some previous comments on using the air fryer. Would like to check if you can share what is the config needed for the air fryer method?

    Thanks! :D


    • wiffy replied: — February 26th, 2016 @ 1:21 pm

      I’ve not tried baking this with the air fryer, but from my past experience, you generally use a lower temperature than the oven. So do experiment and share with us what temperature works for u :)

    Should i store them in the fridge or room temperature?


    • wiffy replied: — January 18th, 2017 @ 4:10 pm

      I store them at room temperature (air-tight container) for up to a week.

    • wiffy replied: — July 23rd, 2017 @ 1:08 pm

      I’ve not tried with golden syrup, but I think it will work equally well.
