- Butterscotch chips
When kids are involved with cooking (see my post about it here), things can get messy. Luckily these can be messy and still turn out great!
How to make butterscotch cornflake clusters
- Line baking sheets or any counter/flat surface with parchment paper or wax paper.
- Microwave butterscotch chips for 30 seconds on high. Stir. Repeat microwaving until melted (approximately 2 minutes).
- Stir in cornflakes until they are coated with butterscotch.
- Scoop or spoon mixture onto prepared parchment/wax paper. Repeat until clusters are formed.
- Allow clusters to cool for about an hour.
Of course, whenever you make these butterscotch cornflake clusters, you can easily make them more festive by using festive sprinkles and by adding a paper cup that matches the holiday or activity!
Butterscotch Cornflake Clusters
- 1 bag butterscotch chips 11 ounces
- 4 cups cornflakes
- Line two baking sheets with parchment paper (or just roll out parchment paper or wax paper and set it on an empty counter or flat surface).
- Microwave the butterscotch chips in a large microwave-safe bowl for 30 seconds on high. Then remove from the microwave and stir. Repeat, microwaving for 30 seconds and stirring, until the butterscotch is smooth and creamy (mine takes 2 minutes, or four intervals of heating).
- Carefully stir in the cornflakes until they are coated with butterscotch.
- Using a tablespoon-size cookie scoop or spoon, scoop a tablespoonful of the mixture onto the prepared parchment paper. Repeat until all the clusters have been formed. You don’t need to leave a lot of space between them because you’re not baking them; you just don’t want them to touch.
- Allow the clusters to cool for about an hour (or until they have set) and then transfer to a tin or serving plate and enjoy.
- Optional - you can add festive sprinkles and put the clusters into mini muffin cups
