Company's Coming - Quick! Grab the Cornflakes!!

So you get a call from a friend saying she's coming over for a chat...
You want to surprise her with a nice cup of tea, but you haven't
baked in a week and the package of Pepperidge Farm Cookies
only has one cookie left in it! What do you do - split the cookie
or make Honey Almond Joys? Do I have time to make them before 
she gets here you ask? As long as she lives 20 minutes away 
because that's all the time you need to make these treats!!

All you do is melt the butter, sugar and honey until boiling,
stir in the cornflakes and almonds, spoon into the mini
 cupcake liners (I used my medium cookie scoop) and 
bake 7-10 minutes. 

Remove them from the oven and let them cool in pan.

These little buttery, crispy, chewy, nutty bites are perfect
with a cup of tea. Be careful - they disappear quickly!!

Honey Almond Joys

5 tbsp butter
1/4 cup sugar
2 tbsp honey
4 cups cornflakes
1/2 cup sliced almonds

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

Melt butter, sugar and honey in a saucepan
until boiling. Remove from heat and stir in
cornflakes and almonds until coated.

Spoon cornflake mixture into mini cupcake liners
placed in a mini cupcake pan and bake for 7-10 
minutes or until golden. Cool completely in
pan before serving.

Just before your friend arrives, put the Honey Joys on a pretty
plate and arrange them, the teapot and 2 teacups on the table.
She'll be so impressed!! Enjoy!!
