My favourite type of baking is the ones that pleasantly surprise you how quick and easy they are! This Chocolate Cornflake Slice definitely fits that bill.
This is an oldie but a goodie that some of you might remember your Mum or Grandma baking. Further to my quick easy lunchbox filler series I thought I would add a slice in that the kids can easily make!
Very similar to the Weetbix Slice Recipe this one is so easy that the kids can make it themselves with little or no help. Simply add the melted butter to the dry ingredients and bake! Great for schools, kindergartens or day cares to make as can be prepped ahead of time.
Again this one has every day ingredients that are on hand in the cupboard, and topped with my easy basic chocolate icing this one is sure to be a favourite. Today I am taking it along to a Mums Coffee Morning as it took no time to whip up and fit in with my cornflake theme! We are having a cornflake baking blitz!

My slice is yum but my icing is soft….where do you think I went wrong??
Possibly a little much water? It does not set hard like a chocolate so should still be a little soft, but it could be a bit too wet, you can remedy this at the time of making by adding a little more icing sugar.
What a delicious slice. This went down a hit with friends. And it was so easy. Thank you for sharing.
Is this a crunchy or soft slice? I don;t have cocoa powder, what else could I use?
It is quite soft, especially if cooked properly. You can omit the cocoa powder if you prefer but it does form part of the flavour and of course is also in the icing. Perhaps look up another variety of slice?
Will this freeze ok? Would be a great one to make for school lunches.
Yes it does, sometimes the icing does not love being frozen, but if you wrap it well to avoid moisture and the chill then it should be ok.

Hello just wondering if you store in the fridge
I tend to store this at room temperature, but you can store it in the fridge if you prefer.
I love this slice so much it’s on regular rotation here! Just like Afghan biscuits but better! Thanks Anna

My partner is in lockdown and while I am at work he would like to use this recipe. He is excited as never bakes. He needs clear recipes to feel confident – can you please advise what the dimensions of the baking tray are. Thankyou 🙂
Hi, great to hear. The pan I use is approx 25 cm square.
Thank you for sharing this recipe. I googled cornflake recipes and this came up. We can’t stop eating it! I think we have a new favourite slice. ?
What is the vanilla

Wonderful! Enjoy and thank you for the feedback

Do you crush the cornflakes in this recipe????
No I just add them whole, they tend to crush down as you mix them in.
It looks yum yum
I first made this in the eighties, and having overlooked it one time, the children named it Concrete.
It was forever their favourite, and was know as concrete by all who ate it, and still is.
We lost the recipe, so I was overjoyed to come across tour recipe. Thank you.
Enjoy your Concrete!
Anna thank you for such a yummy recipe. I have made this again this morning. Yesterdays did not last. We LOVED it! Like others it reminds us of our childhood memories too.
Wonderful! I’m so pleased ☺️

This looks great – will definitely try it. Would love to be able to put a white chocolate icing on top – have you a recipe for same please? Have a bag of white chocolate Melts which I would like to use up – can you help?
You can use it as is – simply melt the white chocolate for 30 seconds at a time in the microwave, stirring in between until smooth and add a little splash of oil at the end. Then pour over the slice once it has cooled a little.
Barbara Bell says
Thank you – will try that today – yum !!
My favourite cake Mama made us and I make for my children and grandchildren. Always topped with a sprinkle of coconut and colourful sugar strands or hundreds and thousands. Love your recipes.
