Tuesdays with Dorie Chocolate Cornflake Haystacks

This is a rare occasion where I’m grateful for being a part of Tuesday’s with Dorie. This particular recipe is one I would have skipped almost for certain. Nothing about it appealed to me. My fiancee? A whole different story. He was excited for these.


(Anyone else excited for Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2 to come out later this week?)

It was a wet, cold, rainy weekend here in Michigan, and as a result I REALLY did not want to head off to the store for the items I was missing. Turns out- I made some trades and made it work.

The recipe called for milk chocolate, eggs, salt, cornflakes, agave nectar, pecans, sweetened coconut, and raisins.

I had milk chocolate, eggs, salt, frosted flakes cereal, honey, almonds, unsweetened coconut and dried cranberries.

It worked. And surprise, surprise- they were yummy. I wasn’t hugely fond of the texture- but it was exactly as described by Dorie. And my fiancee? Loved them.

  1. Yeah I wasn’t hugely fond of the texture either but my staff room went crazy for these! I did sub brown rice syrup for the agave so it might have made them crunchier than they should have been?

    Mine had crispy edges but chewy center which was fine, but i am not a fan of these. Although i do keep eating them for some reason! Yours look delicious.


  3. I wasn’t the biggest fan of these. I think it was the raisins that did it for me!

    I like all your substitutions. These were not my favorite either. Mine are all going to work.
