With Chinese New Year (CNY) just around the corner, these honey cornflakes cups (aka Honey Joys) is the perfect recipe if you are looking for a last-minute CNY snack which is fast and easy to make. There are only four ingredients in this recipe – namely cornflakes, honey, butter and coloured sprinkles.

Crushed cornflakes are coated with a sticky honey butter mixture, and then spooned into cute mini cases topped with coloured sprinkles before baking. After cooled, the cornflakes will harden into one piece in the cup like a cookie. There are various recipes out there, and some call for half honey and half sugar while some (like this recipe) uses only honey. I personally tried both variations and everyone prefer the version without sugar, as it is less sweet and the extra honey also enables the cornflakes to bind better together.

    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.
