Chocolate coated Cornflakes and An award I would never forget!

Now this is a very simple recipe. Damn simple that even your kiddo can do it under your surveillance. You would have caught a glimpse of these in my 4-in-1 chocolate cup cakes. This can be used as a kids-evening-snack or can be used for decorating or as a munch-on snack or as a shoot-up energy source. Shoot-up energy source!!! That sounds ridiculous rite. Come on guys, u have chocolate in it. Wat else do you need to boost up your energy. For me even the word chocolate makes me jumpy on my feet.

I got this idea when I had some extra melted chocolate and luckily when my eyes fell on the cornflakes jar both at the same time.
Indulging in a handful of crunchy chocolate-y snack from time to time without any guilt is needy at times for all-the-time-on-the-toes beings like me.

~*What U Need*~
Any flavored cornflakes - a handful
Melted milk / dark chocolate - 1/4 cup
Vanilla essence - 1/4 tsp

How I Made it:
Melt the chocolate bar using double boiler method / microwave at high @ intervals of 15 secs.
Pour this in a wide heat resistant bowl. Immediately add in the cornflakes and with a spatula gently fold in so that the cornflakes are fully / semi coated. Spread this in a butter paper and chill for 1 hr / till the chocolate solidifies.
Gently scrap from the butter paper and use for decorating or store in an air-tight container in the fridge to be used later.

My Notes:
U can use milk or dark chocolate. However I preferred the milk chocolate the most as it was sweet and went well with crunchiness of the cornflakes.
I have come across recipes in which this mixture is dropped as balls / truffle like. You can go for that too.
Drop the dipped cornflakes into clusters, cool it. Melt some white chocolate in a double boiler, put it in a zip-lock bag and pipe this in a zigzag motion on top of the clusters, sprinkle some colored sugar balls and viola!!! U have Chocolate-cornflaky truffles in hand.
Now that you have different flavors of cornflakes coming out, experiment with them. I have been eyeing the strawberry one for a long time. Would love the color and taste as well.

Now to the award. This is not "just another award" but a very special one from my blog friend Laxmi. When Laxmi commented on one of my posts telling that I have an award waiting @ her space, little did I know that she had made my day. I went to her space expecting another lovely blog award but to my surprise she had written, composed and made an award for individual bloggers. I was awed by the pain and time she had put in to make special awards for each of us. She had given me the "Innovative blogger award" and had written some beautiful words on my blog. Thanks a lot Laxmi. U rock dear!!! *Hugs to U*
I am really happy to have made some sweet friends thro' blogging. Thanks u guys...
