Peanuts coconut cornflakes slice

I must say I really like this slice for 2 main reasons. Firstly, all you need to do is melt, mix and press into a tin… baking needed. That’s fast and fun. Secondly, all my favourite ingredients are in this slice….coconut, peanuts and cornflakes. You just can’t go wrong with this slice. If you are lucky like me who am not allergic to peanuts, I believe you will enjoy this slice.

This is a big tray because I made to share with friends. They liked it. My only mistake was I didn’t chill it long enough before cutting so it was a little crumbly. I was a little impatient…couldn’t wait to try it! Am I the only one? I bet I’m not. Anyway, here’s my simple recipe to share.

Ingredients A (base)
250g butter (melted)
500g biscuit crumbs (any sweet biscuits)

Biscuit mixture for the base

Mix well and press it into a paper-lined shallow tin. Chill in the fridge for a while.

Ingredients B (topping)

1/2C golden syrup
1/2C honey
1/4C sugar
6C cornflakes (crushed coarsely)
1C desiccated coconut
1/2C raisins
1/2C roasted peanuts (finely crushed)

Mixture for topping

Combine butter, peanut butter, honey and golden syrup in a pot. Add all the rest of the other ingredients. Mix it well and pour it on top of the base above. Press it down and leave to chill until set before cutting.

That’s a very quick dessert. I think I would have 3 slices of that. You can send some over here. :D

cheah  on January 26th, 2010

Lovely and simple slice. Saves time too. Do you chill it in the fridge? But of course, you needn’t as your part of the globe is like a fridge!

Mary  on January 26th, 2010

@Divina - You can have as many as you want. You have to come here for it :P Still waiting.

@Cheah - Like what you said, everywhere is like a fridge here. Can’t wait for summer to be here. I just leave it in my garage to chill.

Lauren @ CoffeeMuffins  on January 26th, 2010

Love the idea of no bake and simple - although me and golden syrup do tend to get into a bit of a mess!

kristy  on January 26th, 2010

Mary, this is sooo seducing lol! Perfect for the coming Chinese New Year…fast & simple! So, planning to come back on this coming CNY or not?

Mary  on January 26th, 2010

@Lauren @ CoffeeMuffins - Maybe you can replace the golden syrup with honey.

@kristy - I’ll have to make this for the Chinese New Year….easy without any baking. Have to go for quick recipes otherwise there’ll be no food :D Miss home during this time of the year :( Wish I have a magic button!

Thankfully I am not allergic to peanuts! These look like you’d be dipping into the tin one after another!

TasteHongKong  on January 26th, 2010

Lovely and simple especially no baking is required. Mary, you really have give them a good press as the slices look very packed : ) .

tigerfish  on January 26th, 2010

I do not like baking so I will choose non-baked cheesecake or tiramisu for my fav desserts to make!

Sushma Mallya  on January 26th, 2010

wow what a tempting dessert..would love to try it..A must try for sure..Nice one mary..loved this one too…

Angie@Angie's Recipes  on January 26th, 2010

I bet they are very crunchy and delicious! I love to use cornflakes to make cookie bars.

anncoo  on January 26th, 2010

WOW! Really so easy. Just close your eyes and mix that’s it…hahaa…

Drick  on January 26th, 2010

very different from our version of cereal treats - like the combination, gotta be really good

Simply Life  on January 26th, 2010

Oh WOW these look soooo good!

Roti n Rice  on January 26th, 2010

So easy and yet so yummy! What’s there not to like about peanut butter, peanut, and coconut? … mmm, mmm, mmm.

I’m amazed by your energy! You seem to have a new post everyday.

zurin  on January 26th, 2010

Jeannie  on January 26th, 2010

Very easy to make recipe - I like:D…I would obmit the peanuts because my family do not like peanuts.

Jeff  on January 26th, 2010

no baking required?? Sweet for summer. This time of year I want the oven on as much as possible to help heat up the house.

Mary  on January 26th, 2010

@Sarah, Maison Cupcake - You are very right :D I have to seal the tin!

@TasteHongKong - A good time to exercise my muscles in pressing the 2 layers :D

@tigerfish - I have not tried making makinbg cheesecake and tiramisu yet. Got to try one of these days. Yeah….no baking…that’s what I like. Thanks for telling me that :)

@Sushma Mallya - Thank you very much. I think I have fallen in love with making slices…easy and delicious.

@Angie@Angie’s Recipes - They are delicious but not crunchy. I think it’s because of the peanut butter mixture and it’s not baked. I hope to make cornflakes cookies soon. Love the crunch.

@anncoo - You are so funny :D The next time when I make this, I’m going to try closing my eyes. I definitely can do that after I pour in all the ingredients…close my eyes to stir :P

@Drick - Hope you make your version and blog it. I would love to see. I’m sure it’s delicious.

@Simply Life - Thank you very much. It’s very nice with tea.

@Roti n Rice - I think peanut and coconut make a great combination. Maybe it’s because I grew up eating lots of peanuts and coconut so I just love them :)

@The Kitchen Masochist - I think blogging is very fun :D Blogging makes me a better cook and also meeting lots of wonderful foodie friends like you.

@zurin - Love what you said….like magic!! :D

@Jeannie - I’m sure it’s still very nice without the peanuts, though I have yet to try that. Maybe can add condensed milk, my favourite :P

@Jeff - You are very smart! I better bake a lot then :D It’s so freezing cold here. Can’t wait for summer to come.

Sook @ My Fabulous Recipes  on January 26th, 2010

Peanuts and coconut flakes? What a wonderful combination!

Julie Lynn  on January 26th, 2010

Mary those look so yummy. I think they would be great to take to a party too. =)

Mary  on January 26th, 2010

@Sook @ My Fabulous Recipes - They do combine well I think cos I love both ingredients…mmm

@Julie Lynn - You are absolutely right…great for parties. Each time I make desserts, I love to share with friends. In that way I don’t eat too much.

Natasha - 5 Star Foodie  on January 26th, 2010

Such a fun dessert snack! The combination of coconut, peanuts and cornflakes sounds just scrumptious!

Trissa  on January 27th, 2010

Simple and delicious! I am liking it already Mary!

Mary  on January 27th, 2010

@Natasha - 5 Star Foodie - Thank you very much. I had fun making it, especially pressing it into the tin and cutting.

@Trissa - Thank you very much. I hope to learn more simple and quick desserts.

Shirley  on January 27th, 2010

Healthy and simple. I think it can be a good kid’s dish to make. Just mix and chill… and eat of course.

Mary  on January 28th, 2010

@Shirley - I think your son will love to help you make this. You can delelgate this dessert to him if ever you need one :D

Thas  on January 28th, 2010

This should be named as “Express” peanuts coconut cornflakes slice. Along with the easiness of making this, I love all the ingredients added to this.
My favorite easy dessert is Biscuit pineapple in chocolate, I haven’t posted this recipe yet, gotta do this soon:)

Mary  on January 29th, 2010

@Thas - ‘Express’ sounds cool. I have to make one next time :D Your Biscuit Pineapple in Chocolate sounds delicious. Hope to see on your blog soon.

Conor @ HoldtheBeef  on February 6th, 2010

You already had me convinced with how good these look and how nicely I bet they crunch, but when I saw you have golden syrup in the recipe I’m even more convinced :)

Mary  on February 7th, 2010

@Conor @ HoldtheBeef - They taste very delicious but I have to say the crunch is not there. I think all the liquid softened it.

Chaya  on February 8th, 2010

I have not seen these before but they look like something I would like to see close up to eat.

Mary  on April 10th, 2010

@Chaya - Thanks very much, Chaya! :D
