Honey Joys

I grew up on these in Australia, and my kids love them.

For me growing up in Australia and going to birthday parties, it wasn’t a good birthday party if you didn’t get honey joys.  And since moving to the US I have introduced Honey Joys to my friends and their kids, and they have been a big hit.  When I put them in Connor’s lunch at pre-school, I included one extra so he could share it with a friend.  His teacher was saying I had to make a full batch for the whole class as they were all fighting over the single one, including the teachers!  And then they all wanted the recipe.  So here it is.  I have Americanised it as Americans still use the antiquated Imperial Measuring system.  You will need patty cases or cup cake papers for this recipe.  I also often throw in a little extra honey and butter .. not quite double the amount, but proportionate extra’s of those two ingredients will make them a little more gooey :)



  • 2 oz butter
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 4 cups cornflakes


  • Preheat oven to 350 deg F. 
  • Place butter, honey, and sugar into a small saucepan, and stir over medium heat until butter melts and the mixture becomes frothy.
  • Place the cornflakes in a bowl that can withstand heat, and pour in the honey mixture and stir well.
  • Place spoonfuls of the mixture into prepared patty  cases. 
  • Bake for around 7-8 minutes.  Make sure they do not start to go brown.
  • Stand for around 15 minutes to allow them to firm up and cool down.


Makes around 30.
