How to make crunchy Gruffalo Knobbly Knees

  • A little work

These yummy crispy cakes are the perfect family treat...

  • 25g unsalted butter
  • 100g chocolate
  • 75g cornflakes
  • 25g nuts
  • 25g raisins
  • 2 tbsp honey

You’ll also need…

  • A small saucepan
  • A big bowl
  • 12 paper cases
  • A muffin tray


  • Step 1

    1. Break the chocolate into pieces with your hands and put in the small saucepan.
    2. Add the butter and honey.
    3. Melt over a low heat. Stir until everything is combined, and leave to cool.
    4. Put the cornflakes, nuts and raisins in the big bowl. These are your dry ingredients.
    5. Mix the dry ingredients together.
    6. Pour the warm contents of the pan over the dry ingredients.
    7. Mix everything together really well. It should be quite stiff.
    8. Put 12 paper cases in the muffin tray.
    9. Divide the mixture evenly between the paper cases. You can use a tablespoon to scoop it out of the bowl, and then scrape the mixture into the paper case using a teaspoon.
    10. Put in the fridge for 2 hours to set.
  • You can use any kind of nuts you like, or for a treat you could swap them with mini marshmallows.
  • If you want to get messy, you can mix everything together with your hands – otherwise use a wooden spoon!
