I have not made honey joys in probably five years or more. I don't know why it has been such a dry spell in the honey joy department in our house. It is probably because there are so many recipes out there to try and so little time to try them all. It is good, though, to go back to a tried and true favorite. Especially one this easy.
Honey Joys are one of those things that we always had at a kids birthday party in Australia. They were just a given that had a spot on the table along with the chocolate crackles, fairy bread, butterfly cakes, sausage rolls, and little boys.
Not only are they yummy but they are so easy to make as there are only four ingredients. It can be made in a large saucepan and spooned into the foil baking cases, so it is an easy cleanup too. Honey Joys are also a great recipe for those times when you have a young sous chef wanting to help. This recipe is from the Kellogg's (Australia) website.
90g butter or margarine
1/3 cup sugar
1 tablespoon honey
4 cups of cornflakes
Melt butter, sugar, and honey together in a saucepan until frothy. Add cornflakes and mix well. Spoon into baking cases. Bake in a slow oven 300°F for 10 minutes.
