Honey Joys

These little gems are a traditional Australian party food. Simple, delicious, and kids love them!

2.5 oz butter
1/3 cup honey
1 tablespoon powdered sugar
5 cups Corn Flakes

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Put the Corn Flakes in a large bowl and set it aside.

Over medium-low heat, melt the butter then add the honey and sugar. Stir until heated and well combined, but do not boil.

Pour the mixture into the Corn Flakes and mix thoroughly.

Line 2 muffin trays with cupcake papers – 18-24 will be enough. Add a heaping 1/4 cup of the Corn Flake mixture to each paper. Slightly less if you’re trying to get 24 filled.

Bake for 8 minutes then let them stand for 15 minutes to cool and harden. You can then remove them from the pans to cool completely.

I made this batch for my sons who both had a party for their last day of their preschool class one day after the other. They were well received and what was left kept well in an airtight container for the second class on the next day. We took them to the class in this handy dandy cupcake carrier that I found at Costco for $15. My husband didn’t want me to buy it because it is huge, but I knew it would come in handy now that my boys are reaching school age!

After I made these I was feeling homesick so I called my mother in Australia to let her know the next generation of honey joy lovers had arrived!
