Who doesn’t love an easy-peasy super crunchy chocolate dessert which you can make last minute? This chocolate cornflake bark is so easy to put together, super crunchy and absolutely indulgent. You won’t be able to stop yourself from having this bark. I feel it’s one of those recipes which you can make on all occasions given how quickly it comes together. Feel free to make your own version of this by swapping cornflakes with your favourite breakfast cereal. Let’s get to the ingredients needed to make this chocolate cornflake bark.
INGREDIENTS NEEDED TO MAKE CHOCOLATE CORNFLAKE BARK
To make my chocolate cornflake bark I have used crunchy peanut butter. Feel free to use a creamy peanut butter if you have that at home. Or you can even take it up a notch by folding roasted and finely chopped peanuts into your creamy peanut butter before using for this recipe. I have used this peanut butter for my chocolate cornflake bark.
I have used this salted butter for this chocolate cornflake bark. Feel free to use unsalted if that’s what you have in hand. Make sure you add a pinch of salt in case you are using unsalted butter.
For my chocolate cornflake bark I have used regular cornflake, this one. But like I mentioned above, feel free to use whatever cereal you love and have at hand. Make sure you don’t use a very strongly flavoured cereal which do not pair well with the dark chocolate that we are using in the recipe.
I have used this dark chocolate for that chocolatey goodness in this chocolate cornflake bark. Feel free to use milk chocolate in place of dark if that’s your game. I have used a compound chocolate to make my bark as it doesn’t need to be tempered before setting again. Feel free to use coverture chocolate if you can temper it before using.
PROCESS TO MAKE CHOCOLATE CORNFLAKE BARK
To start with, line a 9-inch pan with parchment paper. I am using a rectangular pan. Keep it aside. Now in a pan set over medium heat, add your crunchy peanut butter along with regular salted butter. Let the two melt together and mix well. Once melted, add the cornflakes and turn off the heat. Coat the cornflakes really well with the peanut butter-salted butter mix completely. Now on your line pan, spread a very thin layer of melted dark chocolate. Onto that, add this peanut butter-cornflake mixture and spread out evenly. Lastly, top it with a thick layer of melted dark chocolate. Spread that evenly and let it set in the fridge for 15-20 minutes. Voila! Your crunchy chocolate cornflake bark is ready.
