Honey Cornflakes Cup

in Asian Delight, Chinese New Year, Snacks

For Chinese New Year this year, I only baked a few very simple goodies. Originally I wanted to make pineapple tart, unfortunately the poor pineapple ended up in the tummy of the spouse & kid before I could get to it! : ) I guess no pineapple tart this year.
Anyway, here’s one of goodies that I made this year for Chinese New Year – the Honey Cornflakes Cup. This is a pretty common Chinese New Year snack but I added a little twist to it by adding almond and dried cranberries to it, and finally decorating it with a little sprinkles.

Tried the recipe but the cornflakes wasn’t as expected…
I realized that after 1-2 days, the cornflakes turn soft…
It’s a real disapponitment n waste of effort.
