  • 8 ounces milk chocolate coarsely chopped
  • 4 ounces dark chocolate coarsely chopped
  • 2 cups corn flake cereal


  • Prepare A Baking Sheet: Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. Place chocolate in a heatproof bowl then set over a pan of simmering water and stir until smooth, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and immediately stir in the cornflakes until they're well coated (it's totally fine if some of them get broken and crushed).
  • Form The Clusters: Use a tablespoon to scoop up a bit of the mixture, then drop onto the prepared baking sheet. Repeat, leaving 1-inch in between each cluster until you've used up all the mixture. Set aside to cool (or refrigerate or freeze) until ready to use.
