Yields: 35 pieces
Ingredients for peanut butter corn flakes balls:
- 80 g softened butter (salted)
- 120 g peanut butter (room temperature)(Homemade Peanut Butter Recipe)
- 60 g icing sugar
- 140 g corn flakes (crushed)
Ingredients for chocolate coating:
- 90 g dark cooking chocolate
- 80 g bittersweet cooking chocolate
- 25 g butter (salted)
- 150 g corn flakes (crushed)
1 Put 290 g of corn flakes in zip lock bag, crush into smaller pieces.
2 Preparing peanut butter corn flakes balls: Mix together butter, peanut butter and icing sugar until smooth, add in 140 g of crushed corn flakes, mix well.
3 Put peanut butter coated cornflakes into small ice-cubes mould.
4 Put in the freezer, freeze for 1 hour until hardened.
5 After freezing for 1 hour, prepare the chocolate coating. Combine both chocolates and butter in a heat resistant bowl, melt over a pot of simmering hot water.
6 Put hardened peanut butter corn flakes balls into melted chocolate mixture, coat each well with chocolate, coat again with crushed corn flakes, then put on a piece of small paper liner. (Reminder: You need to work fast when coating the corn flakes balls as melted chocolate will harden when cooled.)
7 Set aside the prepared corn flakes balls for 5-10 minutes until the outer layer chocolate has hardened.
8 Transfer to airtight containers for storage. (Reminder: You may keep it at room temperature if consumed within 3-4 days. Keep refrigerated if storing for a longer period, allow it to slightly soften at room temperature before serving.)
