Crunchy Chocolate Chip Cornflake Cookies

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

I made these delicious crunchy chocolate chip cornflake cookies last week for the kids as an after school snack, they gave them the thumbs up, which is always a good thing!  It made 30 cookies so placed the left overs in the freezer for the kids lunch boxes.

This is another recipe that reminds me of my Nan, she made them often as I think they were one of my pops favourites.  In my recipe I add a few chocolate chips, she just used sultanas.


I rolled a heaped tablespoon of mixture into balls, which made good size biscuits. You can make them as big or small as you like, just keep an eye on them during the cooking process.

What a great recipe! It combines pretty much all of my favourite ingredients in one especially chocolate.

Katrina March 13, 2012 - 8:21 PM

ooh, it’s a nice hidden surprise and can be easily omitted if preferred to 🙂

Leanda September 6, 2012 - 2:01 PM

how do you think these would go without coconut and sultanas? my family wouldnt eat them otherwise.

Kylie Mayne September 6, 2012 - 2:07 PM

I’d like to know this too. My kids are a little young for coconut, and wont eat sultanas (neither will I…)

Shireen Baker July 11, 2014 - 5:33 PM

Kate - Kat's Assistant October 26, 2015 - 11:00 AM

Leanda, i have never made them without the coconut, you could give them a go. Maybe add another variation of your choice.:)

bronnie marquardt September 6, 2012 - 2:27 PM

These are so yummy, the kids rarely leave any for the freezer!

Rachael July 26, 2013 - 11:27 AM

Made these yesterday and were super easy and delicious. I managed to sneak half to the freezer for a rainy day and leave half out. Enjoyed by both kids and mum!

Bec May 4, 2014 - 1:24 PM

Can this be adapted for a thermomix?

sandie carter October 23, 2015 - 8:37 AM

Thanks for reminding me about these yummy cookies. A dear friend shared this recipe many years ago but she called them chockky rocks. Same recipe with a different name.

Karen October 23, 2015 - 11:01 AM

Yes, Chockky Rocks is the correct name for kids born in the 60s and 70s like me. My grandmother always had these when we visited. I recently found her recipe book and she had this recipe cut from the Cornflakes box back in the 70s stuck in it. Lots of memories in that recipe for me.

Kate December 2, 2015 - 11:48 PM

Yes! Chocky Rocks were a bit favourite when I was growing up. And they were my grandad’s favourite, too.

Kate - Kat's Assistant October 23, 2015 - 8:44 AM

Haha love the name Sandie, Chokky Rocks! .:)

Heart October 24, 2015 - 2:02 AM

You are so creative! It’s my first time to hear making a chip with corn flakes. Love it!

Kate Lloyd October 24, 2015 - 9:01 PM

These look so delicious. I’ll have to give them a try.

Kate - Kat's Assistant October 26, 2015 - 9:54 AM

They really are, Kate!.:) Just so addictive LOL.)

LInda Walmsley June 10, 2016 - 12:08 PM

I made the cornflake cookies last weekend (without the coconut due to allergies) but I found that the kids preferred either the sultanas OR the choc chips so I halved my batch and just added them. was a hit!! didn’t last long enough to be put in freezer.

Katrina - The Organised Housewife June 13, 2016 - 8:51 AM

LOL, maybe a double batch next time!!!

Katherine July 11, 2016 - 4:50 PM

Yum!!! Just made these today, unfortunately didn’t have any choc chips or sulatanas but I substituted with 1 1/2 cups of pitted dates that I blitzed a bit in the food processor (just bog standard dates, not the medjool ones. Worked out fine! Thanks for the great freelance lunchbox ideas x
