A very simple recipe with no baking involved. Must be chilled before eating. A popular treat that will delight both young and old.


  • 4 ozs butter
  • 3 - 4 ozs marshmallows
  • 8 ozs plain chocolate ( I use Bournville but cooking choc. is fine )
  • 4 tbsps golden syrup
  • 3 ozs cornflakes (crushed)
  • 3 ozs bran flakes (crushed)


  • STEP 1
    Line 7 inch square tin with greaseproof paper. Grease gently with cooking oil.
  • STEP 2
    Melt butter, marshmallows, choc. & syrup over low heat. Stir gently & constantly.
  • STEP 3
    When all melted remove from heat & stir in crushed cornflakes & bran flakes, then spread mix in tin.
  • STEP 4
    When cooled leave to chill in fridge for about an hour. Cut into 12 pieces, & remove gr'proof paper.
  • STEP 5
    N.B. If you like walnuts, a few chopped finely, can be added when stirring in the flakes. I have also added 1 oz. sultanas to the mix and that was good.
